Parker's Room

Kara and I are getting super excited for the arrival of little Parker John. We have 11 weeks to go, but the nesting has begun!! This past week we finished painting, put up the wall decals, rearranged the room, put up new curtains, bought a new lamp, and bought a rug. We had everything finished by Wednesday. That was a good thing because we had lots of company on Friday night (Kara plays Bunco with a bunch of ladies). They all loved his room. The only thing missing is a chair, but there's no room for one in Parker's little room. However, we have two rocking recliners in another room upstairs and that is where we will spend lots of time rocking Parker and soothing him so he will go back to sleep.

I guess we aren't quite done with his room. We bought a shelf yesterday and haven't put it up yet, but it is so close to being done that I wanted to post pictures. I think his room turned out absolutely adorable and suitable for a boy.

The night light my mom made me when I was little. Kara hates it, but it will be staying in Parker's room.

The room looks so cute. I am very excited for you guys. I did want to offer one word of advice based on past experience. Having the floor lamp behind the changing table might not be such a good idea once Parker is a little bit older. Changing tables are boring places for babies and they will grab anything they can get. I would hate for him to pull the lamp over or burn his hand on a hot bulb. Just a thought.
