Well, we have spent more than a few days, weeks, hours getting ready for baby.  And so far we have nothing to show for it-ha!  Well, I take that back, we have some wall decals, a credit card bill and a three page to-do list.  No, I'm not kidding!

The game plan, we are planning to paint the walls a light blue and have a high chair rail with beadboard.  A trip to bengamin moore is on my to-do-list to get samples so we can decide which color to go with.

We have been fans of PBK Petter Rabbit bedding all along, and it's what we are going with. 

I also plan to do bookcases flanking the window in the nursery like the photo above, and have found some ways to make it happen thanks to Pinterest!

We are doing a taller dresser and putting a blue changing pad on it.  I have looked at Bellini and getting a taller custom dresser built, but along came IKEA will a taller dresser.  This is what we are getting, but with the blue changing pad from PBK!

We have ordered a white spindle crib

And our glider...the most researched and debated item to add to our nursery.  From the get-go, it was my goal to find a glider tall enough for me to rest my head on it.  I mean, that is the point during 3 am feedings, right?  After extreme internet searches, visits to way too many furniture stores, calls about custom orders, we finally decided on the PBK Grand Comfort Glider in Parchment with White Piping.  This is the chair, it will just be solid with white piping:

We have the Peter Rabbit decals from PBK and Josh loads up on Beatrice Potter everytime he is in London.  I'm going to get a good list going for his upcoming trip across the pond. 

I guess we need to decide on a name, so I can figure out some type of name display.  We also have some posters from the author/illustrator who writes all the Florida Gator Children's books to hang. 

Maybe a rug, and will need some lamps.  Oh gee lots of odds and ends to get to.  Where's my list?!?!

SO cute! I can't wait to see the finished product :)
I actually have that dresser from IKEA (in blue), and just be warned that it comes in about a million pieces. A friend of mine put it together for me, and it's a great piece of furniture... I love it!

That is going to look so wonderful!! I can't wait to see pictures of it all coming together!! I'm loving the nursery decorating process. I'm hoping we'll have paint on the walls very very soon... especially since the crib will arrive on or before Monday AND we already have the rug, rocker, ottoman, and new blinds sitting in there waiting :)

We have the same Ikea dresser as our changing table and love it! The height is perfect if you're tall! Hope all is well!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! The glider is SUPER important so definitely worth it to pay more for quality. Ours is from Bellini (along with all the nursery) furniture and we can't say enough great things about the quality of the Bellini furniture. Congrats again - can't wait to see how it shapes up!

It all sounds so cute! Some of our dearest friends have the PBK Peter Rabbit bedding for their son and it's so cute in person. Can't wait to see the finished product-I know Baby will love!
