This is the quilt that goes with the bedding set I bought for new baby girls room. The bumper has the lady bugs on it, an the sheets are a pretty red gingam. I really wanted to get away from doing something super girly (aka pink) and its pretty easy to find ladybug decorations, so this is what I made my mind up on as the theme. I would like to paint the walls a sage green color, and of course Dave is going to put up chair rail like all the other baby rooms lol. I am deterimined to buy a crib between now and next week. I have to buy a new crib because 1. Laura still sleeps in hers, and 2. Rachel still sleeps in hers. Laura is getting to the age of being ready for a big girl bed, but regardless my kids cribs are white, and Laura's will convert into a full size bed, I can't remember if Rachel's does or doesn't. ALSO, the dresser for this baby's room is a dark wood finish so I can't have a white crib. I had someone suggest I should use one of the white cribs with the dark dresser to be thrifty, and that's like saying to me that its snowing in July. It's just not going to happen. I can't have my child sleeping in a room with mismatched furniture. I would expect Child Protective Services to take me away for doing that.
Maybe my baby will not care how hard mommy and daddy worked to make the nursery nice looking, but gosh darn it, my own ego cares, and I will take pictures and tell my baby's how pretty all their rooms were before they got a say in decorating their own rooms.
