"Cucus Sleep"

That's how Knox will tell you where Lucas will be sleeping once he's finally here!  We have a 3-bedroom house, so Kurt and I have a room, Knox has a room, and Lucas will be sharing with the guest room temporarily.  Once Lucas starts sleeping through the night consistently, we'll move Knox into the room with Lucas in order to have a dedicated guest room once again.

However, since Lucas's room and the guest room are one (for now), I opted to go less "nursery" and more just simply decorated.  I fell in love with this color called "Blue Nova" from Benjamin Moore, so I had my heart set on painting the room that color.  I wanted everything else to be clean, crisp white (for the most part).  I am NOT a decorator, but I do love me some HGTV!  So, here's my attempt at decorating a room for both adults and a newborn:

 Jordan so selflessly let us borrow a crib so we didn't have to go out and purchase one right now.  It works PERFECTLY in the room, and we are SO thankful to the amazing Elkins family for always helping us out!!

 And the crib bedding came from Pottery Barn Kids.  Some of my unbelievably gracious, loving friends here in Birmingham threw me a little "baby sprinkle" and blessed us with a gift card to PBK so I could get the bedding.  Love love love those sweet friends!  (Sense a theme?  I am one blessed girl!!!)

 Jordan is also letting us borrow her glider.  I seriously could sleep in that thing, it is SO comfortable!

 For a bit of whimsy, Kurt's unbelievable talented mom (Knox's sweet nana) painted a few Cat in the Hat canvases to put above the changing table.  This is BY FAR Knox's favorite part of the room!

Now all we need is that little bundle of joy to come out and use his newly decorated room!  Can't wait to meet you, sweet baby Lucas!!!!!

  1. It looks great, Jill! I had to laugh at your blog title yesterday bc I am all about my coffee & blog reading before everyone wakes up, but I never post! At all. Ever. The layout templates & pics & captions are so intimidating!! Good luck these last few weeks, if you make it that long!
