So, since we last updated y'all, we've been asked a number of times how the nursery is coming along. Truth be told, it's a blank canvas. We have mentioned adding crown molding and painting the chocolate accent wall (Sherwin Williams Otter) to the lighter color on the other walls called Believable Buff, also an SW color. We figure any crib we get will be a dark finish and wouldn't work with the deeper hue.

Speaking of crib, we've got yet another heavyweight contender that to my surprise we found at Babies R Us. Until two weeks ago, we hadn't visited BRU. When we did, we not only found a great crib option, but also a beautiful glider that we have since ordered. Here are pics of the glider, crib, and dresser:

In addition, we zeroed in on a car seat! Score! What's really awesome about the Evenflo Symphony is that it's a convertible, meaning it'll last us through each of the child restraint stages required here in Texas - infant (rear-facing), toddler (forward-facing), and young child (booster seat). This means we won't have to buy another seat - maybe ever. That is, unless God blesses us with another child. :)

The fact that we added the car seat to our registry on Sunday and someone bought it like yesterday is truly humbling. We are SO grateful for the generosity of our family and friends and can't wait to celebrate "what God did" at the baby shower next month.


  1. I like everything you've selected! We also bought Michaela a new seat and stroller this week too.

  2. Cool! Which stroller did you go with? We're leaning toward Baby Trend Expedition ELX (i think). It's a jogging stroller.
