Lincoln's Nursery

A boy this cute deserves an equally cute nursey. I tried my best and here's what I came up with.


I love Lincoln's nursey. It is my new "happy place". And to think Ryan wanted to keep his bikes and desk in there. That was one battle I had to win. My mom was incredibly instrumental in the whole decorating process so a big Thanks to you mom! Kate inspired the Lincoln letters by making the second "L" for me and I think they turned out great. Mom painted the table blue, and those are Lincolns tiny little hands and feet from the first week he was born.

Remember how stressful it was trying to hang those shelves mom! But look how great they turned out. The rocking chair is the only thing that doesn't really match....but I got it for free on loan from a friend for the year and it's super comfortable and works great, so I can't complain.



The piggy bank is my favorite!

I love the rug, bedding, and big blown up pics of Link. Can you spy him in this pic? I love how he's smaller than the monkey.

I love you Link a Bink!!

Oh my gosh LINCOLN!!!!!!!! When are you coming to visit me? When can I come visit you? You are getting so big so fast! I LOVE that first picture... his smile is just precious. I was looking at Bug's calendar to think what Lincoln is probably doing now... at this time, Anderson gave that first to me(2nd in life) laugh to you and me in the dining room while Ryan's brother was visiting. Remember that moment? Is Lincoln laughing???

Nursery is cuters. Love the penny, love the piggy, love the letters and LOVE THAT BABY!

Hey Cheryl, I just found your blog through your post on FB. ;-) Your little guy is so beautiful! I read back a little bit, and it sounds like you went through some trials getting pregnant or something like that...? I can totally relate - we had secondary infertility, and it was a nightmare. We lost a baby and had to all sorts of infertility treatments, and it was just awful. But it sure makes you that much more grateful for the ones you get to keep, doesn't it? I'm so excited for you, and I love his nursery! Congrats again!

It looks like he has gotten so much bigger! You and your mom did a great job with the rest of those letters! They look awesome! His nursery looks so cute and I'm glad I was able to see it in person.

So when I first looked at the picture of the Lincoln letters, I thought it was a doll on the changing table. I thought, "Oh how cute of Cheryl to put a doll on the table to demonstrate what Lincoln looks like there." Then I realized it was actually Lincoln. I seem to get dumber by the day! His room is super cute and cheerful. :)

Amanda said...

He's changing!!! Man alive he's a cutie. And I love that you placed him in practically every picture. One day I'd like to come and see your place in C-ville, but who knows when that'll be. We'll make it happen before Lincoln changes TOO much on me. Miss you!

Mom said...

I love how you hung the Lincoln letters. I especially LOVED the pictures of Lincoln. Is he really sitting in a bumbo? He's growing up too fast............I MISS MY BINKS!

Ming said...

Cheryl and Ryan, The nursery looks awesome. Thanks for sacrificing your office Ryan, (been there done that) If he just had a nice big yellow bear it would be complete. I think I know what will make a great Christmas present for Lincoln.
Love Dad
