Petit's Room

Just to show you what hubby and I have been up to in the last little while... here's Petit's room as it stands right now. Please note: the crib is currently in our bedroom and there's a double bed in what will be Petit's room because my aunt will be sleeping in there when she and my mom arrive in a few weeks to give us a hand.

The Crib: We decided on a DaVinci Kalani crib. It's convertible to a toddler bed and eventually a double bed, as long as it isn't totally wrecked by that time! :)

For those who are curious, the Japanese Kanji in the frames above the bed are "love" (also tattooed on my right ankle), and my name as written by a wonderful woman I knew when I lived in Japan years ago.

This is to show off the gorgeous curtains that my aunt made for the bedroom. I'm so pleased with them! She did a fabulous job! They help to darken the room nicely for afternoon naps.

The furniture and all kinds of gifts, goodies and things we'll need in the coming weeks! The change table is a removable piece that will be unscrewed as Petit grows and no longer needs it. And then it'll be a lovely dresser.

And the quilt that my aunt embroidered. It's far too lovely to mess up, so I decided to hang it instead.

This is The Room that Shall Not be Named from many years ago. We'd redecorated it once before, but it's time. I think it's finally time for me to let go and maybe, just maybe, call it a nursery.

I reach full term tomorrow at 37 weeks. I'm excited, nervous and dare I say, hopeful. And never in my wildest dreams did I believe we'd get this far.

Just to let you know, I got a Da Vinci Kalani crib from and we've already converted it once and it's still standing strong, so your baby's crib shouldn't have any problem. It's been a great bed for our child for many years. I'd highly recommend it to other parents too. They're available in so many pretty colors that it's easy to pick the one that goes best with your nursery design ideas.
