First Look: Matilda's Room

I've had a lot of people ask me what we're doing for Matilda's room, so I thought I would share some pictures! Probably the highlight of every pregnant woman's third trimester is decorating. With all of the waiting it's a fun distraction to get caught up in bumpers, rocking chairs, and clothes!

We purchased the Expedit from Ikea for storage purposes and I have a thing with cubbies. Daddy helped set it up and he did a great job. There were a few hiccups, but Mom and I supervised:).

Sam and Daddy breaking out the furniture...We got Matilda an easel to inspire her creativity. I love school house touches like chalk boards and old books.

Grammy and Lynndaddy got us the adorable rocking chair and pillows, and the crib was my cousin Patrick's.

We still have a lot of final touches to do, but here is the rough draft!

The bedding I got on ebay and I love it! I wanted something that was sweet and not overly fussy.

So, here is a little peak at what our weekends have been like! Thanks again Jake for helping me pick up the mattress!!
