The nursery has turned into a sort of holding space for all the Lemmondrop's stuff. He has received a number of beautiful quilts and blankets, some of which were homemade by loving hands. They are hanging over his crib, the rocking chair, anywhere we can find space. Some would look nice hanging on the walls, but we haven't begun to think about wall art yet. Also note the dresser, which Steve had when he was a child. If we were handy around the house, we'd probably refinish it to remove the orange floral pattern on the drawers, but on the other hand, I think I'd kind of miss it. It used to be in our bedroom, and I've grown accustomed to its face. :) (I'm sorry if these are blurry. I exported them from iPhoto at lower-than-usual resolutions because I've been having trouble uploading larger files onto Blogger. Or, maybe it's something else. I'll try to fiddle with them more if I get some time this weekend.)

This is the changing table, stocked with an assortment of cloth diapers from Peapods, a sack full of disposables for the first week home, plus accessories. Who knew a baby needed so much stuff for his toiletry care? I sure didn't, until we started down this road!

Here's his stack of books, many of which were gifts from the baby shower my coworkers threw for me. We still need to find a home for them; for now, they're on a table which probably won't stay in this room.

But here, ladies and gentlemen, is where the Lemmondrop will spend his nights for the first few months of his life. He'll be sleeping next to our bed in this Pack & Play bassinet (a generous gift from Leigh, Jo and Elizabeth). That way, he'll be closer to us, and we can pick him up easily to nurse in the middle of the night.

Thank you for stopping by our slightly messy back rooms this morning!
