Nursery Redo

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Well now that Riley's birthday is over and we have recuperated a little it is time to start focusing on the nursery makeover. Since Riley's room is very "boy" with sports items and darker colors we feel the need to make it a little more gender neutral with the addition of baby Hannah on the horizon. We have gone back and forth about what to do exactly and continue to question whether or not we should really completely redo it. But I know that if we don't make the room more "girl" friendly we will feel like we are shorting our little girl. I think we have decided to go with a "Thing One and Thing Two" theme for the room since they will be so close in age and I am sure that they will get into just as much trouble. Here is a sneak peak at some of the ideas that we have been thinking about doing.

Hopefully this weekend I can get some time in looking around for material for the new baby bedding, curtains, etc. We are thinking of doing her bed in red and white and his in turquoise and white. But of course you cannot find any bedding to fit the "picture" you have in your head. =) Hopefully with the help of my mom we will be able to make something one of a kind and special for the two of them. Our goal is for them to have a fun room where they can let their imaginations go. Here's to the plan!

Riley's 1st Birthday

Thursday, May 14, 2009

Whew!!! What a week it has been. Getting ready for Riley's birthday turned out to be more tiring than we would have thought. From the cake/cupcake making, goodie bag shopping, tree making, and decorating we didn't realize just how much goes into a 1st birthday. What a special day it turned out to be. Riley was surrounded by many friends and family that love him very much and it definitely showed. Is it possible for someone to be too cute? It was "his day" and he knew it. He was flirting with all the little girls and was the center of attention all day.

I can't believe just how fast the time has flown. It seems so unreal that a year has gone since we welcomed our little miracle into the world. He has amazed us everyday and makes me even more grateful that I am able to be a part of his life. Riley is such a fun loving boy it is hard to ever be in a grumpy mood around him. Even on my worst days he makes me laugh out loud with his infectious smile and laugh! I didn't think it was possible to love someone so much....but Danny would agree, this little boy has stolen our hearts.

Here are just a few pictures to share from Riley's special day....
