Sawyer’s Nursery and Blessing Day

The day my amazing mother left was the day my amazing mother-in-law arrived. I have been so lucky to have so much help since Sawyer was born. Sylvia was awesome. She was so helpful in so many ways. The woman is so self-less. She cooked, cleaned, let me sleep….she even recalked my bathroom! Lincoln had a great time with her and we all miss her so much.

Sylvia brought these cute little outfits for the boys.

While Sylvia was here we finished Sawyer’s nursery. My mom helped me plan it all out and get everything started and Sylvia and I finished it up. I love it! I wasn’t planning on doing any kind of nursery at all for Sawyer because I didn’t want to spend the money, but after a few great finds on Craigslist and a few gifts from my mom one thing lead to another and now he has a room worth documenting! Thanks mom and Sylvia!

My mom had the idea to spray painted this towel rack red and use it in the room.

The rug is one of my favorite parts!

We found the dresser on craigslist too. It was all white but my mom painted it and replaced all the knobs and it looks a thousand times better. We also got a new lamp shade to match.

Last Sunday Ryan blessed Sawyer at church. It was a really sweet blessing. The part that I remember most and loved was that Sawyer and Lincoln would be good friends through out life. These pics are from the blessing day.

The nursery is adorable. I love that rug and the artwork! It's so great you take me on virtual tours of your house. It makes me feel like I know where everything is. I need to come out and visit you, but at this point it'll have to be post baby.

The room looks so great! It really turned out cute. Kudos all around. I love that Sawyer is in every picture.

I can't believe you already have things framed. You are WAY ahead of me.

Wish we could have been there for the blessing. Too bad that didn't time out better.

Sylvia caulked your bathroom?!

Sawyer's room looks great. I love the colors and your great bargain finds. You guys did such a nice job on it, and I'm sure he'll love having his own baby space. I guess I should hurry up and finish decorating Bradford's room!

My favs is the artwork and the dresser. The dresser turned out so cute. Mom has such a talent. And way to just get it done. I just BARELY hung Hannah's name. I also love the little feet and hands. Is it lame if I copy you and do Hannahs....and 4.5 months?

Great looking room. Sawyer is lucky to have such a great mom and great grandmas. Does he sleep at night in his room now?

Very fun visiting you last week.

Love

Dad

Darling room! I love the artwork! It's always so tough what to hang in a baby boy's room, but I think you nailed it: not too grown-up, but not too baby/cheesy.
