Samantha's Nursery & Decor

Although technically, Samantha's nursery is also our bedroom/office, she has got her own little set up, which I felt was worth it's own post! ;) Plus, all the little decor projects have been SO much fun these past several months; I painted her four canvases, just like I did for Vincent, painted and hung up her letters and made a quilt, a couple of pillows and a taggie toy to go with the theme. I also put together four of the paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling. Everyone who attended our baby shower put their finger prints on the tree in the cream colored frame and Mike's cousin Alma made the beautiful diaper cake!  

Samantha has got the wall on my side of the bed for her bed (the same newborn napper in the pack n play that we used for Vincent), her dressers and the rocker that was in Vincent's room.

For the first several months, she will be sleeping in the newborn napper in the pack n play and I will use the pack n play's changing table for diaper changes, particularly at night. It worked great for Vincent and I'm hoping it will work well for Samantha! We are hoping that Vincent will be ready for a toddler bed by the time Samantha is ready for the crib, but we will just have to see! There's a bassinet underneath the napper and the changing table, which she can sleep in for a little while as well, after she's grown out of the napper. We've got the swing in front of our dresser at the moment; although it's not entirely ideal, it works for the time being. If she is anything like her brother was, it might be where she sleeps some nights!

I used my silhouette to cut out vinyl letters to label all her dresser drawers, just as I did with Vincent's. It definitely makes the plastic dressers more fun. :) They contain most everything she needs: newborn to 3-6M sized clothing, socks and shoes, hats, bibs, baby care items (lotions, brushes etc.), linens, blankets and extra diapers and wipes. 

The rest is kept in the pack n play storage: diapers, wipes, burp cloths, powder, rash cream, aquaphor and hand sanitizer, extra blankets, stuffed animals and swaddling blankets.

That's pretty much it! I am so excited to have just about everything checked off on the "to do before baby" list and beyond ready for this baby girl to make her appearance! :)
