Big brother nursery gift

We had these three boxes to hang on the wall in our guest room and ended up taking them out and putting them on a shelf in the garage to collect dust.

Now that we are getting the nursery ready for our little girl I would like to do as much DIY projects as possible to make it more homey and of course cheaper!

So I had the idea of having our son Kyler paint the boxes!

He had a great time and they came out super cute!

We used washable children’s paint to keep it as clean as possible.

Of course Ky had a bath immediately after and it easily wipes off of the kitchen floor!

This was definitely fun for all of us and a great gift to his soon to be little sister.

I let them dry and now have them hanging in the nursery and am excited for more projects to come!

Crib and bedding

We have put the crib together!

We still have a little under three months to have everything ready for Annabella’s arrival so I haven’t started panicking yet.

I love to have everything ready way far in advance so I’m sure I’ll be going crazy soon.

Our son helps time fly by waiting for Annabella’s arrival. I remember waiting for him seemed like forever and now I feel like time is going by too fast.

While we were putting the. Rib together Kyler (our son) tore the styrofoam packing to bits and pieces!!!!! There’s a huge mess but he really enjoyed himself and we got the crib done while laughing at the same time.

We bought the crib bedding from The Land of Nod.

It was a bit pricey but the quality is great and I fell in love with the pattern.

We forgot to buy a mattress the last time we were out so I can’t put the bedding in yet but I will ASAP!

I can’t wait for the room to be finished and ready for our sweet baby girl.

New sibling suggestions

Well we are expecting a baby girl in October! We are so super excited and hope our 18 month son will be too once he arrives.
Ky (our son) is my world and I spend every second of my day with him. I’m a crazy obsessed mom who even still has him sleeping in the bed! I know I know it’s crazy! I need to get him in his crib before her arrival or things will be too difficult.

Any suggestions?
I hate to hear him cry and feel bad because as soon as I put him in his crib for a trial he hates it. He will play in it during the day if I’m doing something like vacuuming his room or a quick chore but other than that he hates it and know I’ll take him out…
Yes an 18 month old has me wrapped around his tiny adorable finger.
Any suggestions in preparing him for a baby/sibling?
