getting started on the nursery

baby items are starting to make their way into our home and things are getting real. 


after studying reviews and prices, we landed on the bayletto Hudson convertible crib (right now on sale at allmodern.com).  all this baby gear is seriously overwhelming - it feels really good to cross one big item off the list. 

my mom came to visit and helped me with curtains while she was in town.  it was so nice to have an extra set of hands and another creative mind to help with a project, for a change.


i purchased the plain silk curtain panels from Target and she sewed on the little ball trim.  we also added some black-out liner in hopes that the baby will sleep for hours and hours at a time.  ;)   


while she was here, we also made a mobile to hang over the crib ... an idea i had first seen on Martha Stewart's website for party d├ęcor.

 
by the way, we're having a girl.  :)  :)  :)
