You asked for a nursery update!

You wanted a nursery update, well you got it!!! :-) We've been busy bees preparing for the third trimester and Nora's imminent arrival.

Here is a picture of the room before. Be sure to note the paint samples all over the walls (I was really unsure at first and apologize for ever doubting Lezlee!) and the blue painters tape on the floor where we were measuring to make sure the furniture we ordered would fit:

Here's a pic that explains our motivation to call in the professionals:

(We removed the molding & found layers of paint and wallpaper that were causing the walls to ripple!)

Here was the remodel in progress after the first day. They demolished the old crown molding, sanded the baseboards, put up the sheetrock and probably more things that I'm blissfully unaware of!

Oh, and here's the wallpaper found under layers of wall during demolition. Looks like Nora won't be the first baby in this room:

Here's what the room looked like less than a week later when the work crew finished painting the walls and the trim and putting up new crown molding..........

(Another view. Yes, we have 4 doors interrupting this room!!)

(The new crown. It's much bigger than what was there before and it looks much better!)

My mom and I were busy bees (ok, mostly my mom) when last I visited SC. She made Nora a lovely pillow, which will go in our swivel glider, if ever we find an attractive one that we can afford. See:

And a pic of her hard at work that she has no idea I took with my cell phone (hehehe):

Even though we don't have it yet, I thought I'd share a web photo of the nursery furniture we ordered through Babies R Us. We got the Baby Cache Heritage Collection furniture (just the convertible crib and changing table) in espresso, which is pictured below:
Oh, and I can't fail to mention that I did get my diaper bag accessories in the mail from the OiOi people that contacted on my behalf. I am so thrilled with the bag now!

We are really making progress!!!! Can't wait for the furniture to arrive so we can attempt to assemble it. Nora's bumper is being made now by Jonathan's mom and grandmother. This nursery will truly have been a team effort when all's said and done.
