Long Awaited…

I think it was over a month ago when I said that the baby’s nursery was almost done and that I’d be posting final photos very soon.

As you can tell, that was a big fat lie. Sorry about that.

But the wait is finally over…the nursery is actually done, and here I am posting photos!

And now, my duty is done. Also, my hospital bag is packed. Baby, you’re allowed to come any time.

    Oh my goodness that is a cute nursery! I love how you put a painting of the baby's mommy and daddy in there for him. What a sweet touch! Do you want to come and decorate my kids rooms for me? 🙂 I hope that your baby doesn't make you wait too much longer!

    Hi Merrick! I'm one of Janssen's friends, I adore your blog! Your art is incredibe, you have an amazing talent. And this nursery- oh my heart! It is so precious! I am especially in love with your Noah's Ark. You are seriously gonna love that chair, btw. We have an old rocking recliner similar to that, and although yours is MUCH cuter, and although I thought ours was somewhat of an eyesore, I couldn't be more thankful for it. It is the only chair I ever nurse in, it's THAT comfortable! Congrats on your upcoming arrival!!
