First Look: The Furniture that Set the Tone for Etta's Nursery

The same night after we finished Etta's nursery, my water broke. It was two weeks earlier than her due date and we'd joked earlier in the day that now the nursery was complete, we were ready. Little did we know she'd take us literally.

Our Etta!

And just like that, she's here! Our little Etta Garnett Vidra had plans of her own on the timing of her big debut, making her way into the world two weeks early over Memorial Day weekend. Today marks her official due date, which feels surreal since we can't imagine the past 2 weeks any other way than with her here. That said, while we were mentally prepared for any scenario, we fully expected her to come on or past her due date.

Nursery Update: A Crib for Thumper

After our last ultrasound appointment, Tim came home and put our crib together in less than an hour. The minute he called me upstairs to take a look, everything felt real.

A Fresh Start: Painting the Nursery

The small bedroom we've used as a closet just next to our master was the only room we hadn't painted in the entire house since moving in 8 years ago... until last weekend. We're slowing updating this little space into the baby's nursery and I can't tell you how much it makes the idea of meeting our daughter feel like a reality.

Nursery Plans!

Lately, one of the most frequent questions we're getting is when we're starting the nursery. That and what the colors are or if we have a theme. Well, we've only just gotten started! In the midst of finishing up our laundry and upstairs office, we didn't want to wait too much longer on the nursery (given we're in the 60-day countdown) so, we are juggling a bit of each at once as time permits.

Over the last few weekends, we've been chipping away at the upstairs laundry room. The good news is we're already doing our laundry in the new space, and it's been life changing! That said, we've still got a handful of finishing details to take care of before calling this little laundry closet complete, so today I wanted to share a peek at where things are right now along with all the plans in store for wrapping this one up!
