Show Us Where You Live Friday

It's time again for another installment of "Show Us Where You Live Friday" hosted by Kelly's Korner! This week's room is "children's room/nursery". I love Dominic's room. It's so peaceful & calming. Enjoy another sneak peek into our home! :)




Dominic's Nursery. It's a bumblebee theme-I chose it before we knew if we were having a boy or a girl. I just thought it was so cute! The walls are painted a light sage, it's really calming.
The Classic Pooh Bear that Dominic takes his picture with every month. He's already dressed up for Dom's 7 month picture on June 13th. June's theme is Graduation & Father's Day.



Changing table & toy hammock-we bought a second toy hammock that we haven't hung yet. His stuffed toy collection is getting out of control!



I love these paintings. This one says "Bee Happy" and the other one says "Busy Bee". Dominic is starting to get big enough to touch them so I'm thinking I'll have to do some redecorating here soon. In the wicker basket I have all our changing & bedtime tools. #1 on the list is the Johnson & Johnson bedtime massaging gel! Dominic loves his bedtime massage-and I swear it helps him sleep better!








A very small part of Dom's toy collection. Most are scattered throughout the house & car. Of course you can see Brutus the Buckeye peeking out over the brown teddy bear my Opa "grandpa" gave me when I was a year old. The little bear next to the stuffed football is Dom's "prayer bear". You squeeze his tummy and he says the "Now I lay me down to sleep" prayer. He says his prayers with Dominic every night.
A view from the doorway. I love the big window-it usually brightens up the whole room but today was pretty gloomy & rainy.


Dominic's crib & glider. We got the letters at Michael's, then painted and hung them. You can see my brother's Ohio State football helmet (he played for the Buckeyes) under the table, we are planning on using that for one of Dom's photo sessions.
Instead of a nightlights (we do have one of the plug in ones, but it doesn't give us much light), we decided to use a fish tank. Problem: there are yet to be any fishy tenants. ha! The soft noise from the filter is actually kinda like "white noise".


Another view from the crib area. I love love love that Dominic has his own full bathroom. (I won't show you that one yet!) You can also see the two closets , dresser & shelf full of goodies. I'm still stuck on what to put on the wall above the bookshelf. Any ideas?


There's so much going on with this bookshelf.

Top Shelf: Puppy from FAO Schwartz, CD player, Piggy bank

2nd Shelf: Alarm clock, CD's, and basket full of toys & rattles

3rd Shelf: Basket full of shampoos, lotions, pacifiers, etc and Hippo

Bottom Shelf: Books Books Books! This is such a small portion of the books we have--being a former teacher, I really had quite the collection! :)

Lou saw this and HAD to get it for Dominic. It's a football piggy bank! :) I wonder if Dominic is going to be a quarterback like his Daddy?

Dominic's dresser, you can also see the 2nd closet from this angle.

Afraid the nursery was too girly, Lou felt better when we added this quote to the wall. You can also see the display of picture frames, clock, & lamp.

When packing up Dominic's too tiny clothes I couldn't pack up these two hats. They are the ones that he wore in the hospital. SO SO TINY!! Lou's sister, and Dominic's godmother, Anna MADE this bear for Dominic. She's so talented..she also made my bridal veil, Dominic's Baptism suit and a beautiful quilt! I wish I had a talent like that!


Thanks for taking a look!

Cute nursery, but I wanted to say how much I love his monthly photo shoot with a seasonal theme! Such a cute idea. I took monthly pics of my girls, but I love this idea!

Oh my goodness, your baby boy is so cute! And what a great nursery. I really like the saying over the dresser....so true.

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog.

Very cute. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. The seahorse is awesome. We actually have two of them and when I lay my baby down at nap and for bedtime I just push on the belly and it plays the sweetest softest lullabys. You should get one. Your room color is cute too!!

Don't you just love word art. We have it all over our house. That room is super cute and very clean, I love the calm colors.

very comforting room - love the colors! like the night light alternative. we had my brother take a decorative candle holder that diffuses light in a pattern and turned it into a night light. much better than the plug in kind. i think we have the same crib. love the room and can see why your son would too!
