Ok so I managed to take a few pictures to give you a small glimpse into Brooks room. We moved Emma's furniture in there last night so I just did what I had time to do which wasn't a lot. Hopefully you'll see the big picture shortly but this will definitely give you an idea. And of course when Emma's room is ready I will post pictures of it. Here is a picture of the long awaited bedding (I say that because I was ready to see it from the time I picked it out). I got it from Becker's and she is here in Birmingham, although she'll do it for whoever no matter where they are. I didn't show the whole thing, as the outside bumper is different then what is posted here and the ends are different. Remember this is just a glimpse.
Here is the blanket and pillow that goes with his bedding.
Here is a picture of 1 wall. This is all around the room. Can I just say that I have the BEST husband out there! He actually enjoys painting and so I had given him several ideas that I liked and he wanted to do this one and it happened to be the most complex. I think he did an AWESOME job but I knew he would because he did such a good job with Emma's room when we were doing it.
This is Mr. Giraffe (we don't have an official name yet but I'm sure we will eventually)! I just love giraffe's and so I knew years ago if I ever had a boy I wanted a big stuffed giraffe. I got it off Amazon. Emma loves it! When it's not in Brooks room later on it will be in their play room. It's 5 feet tall. (there is a pink bucket on the dresser next to it, that is Emma's, not Brooks, lol! Remember we had to empty her room last night).
And here are some pictures I ordered on Ebay from a store called From the Heart Inspirational Art (they happen to be here in AL as well). I LOVE THEM!! I found frames this weekend and Ben painted the mats green for me that match the walls and I think they are adorable. I didn't get a close up but they all have bible verses on them. I tried to take a better picture but you could still see the flash either way.
We all really like the room, including Emma. She told Baby Brooks last night that he could have her furniture and she loved him and kissed my belly. It was so SWEET!!! Of course once we put the bedding in it she wanted to sit in it and she was just grinning ear to ear talking about Baby Brooks. She did extremely well and kept bringing me her stuff saying that Brooks could have it too. She doesn't understand he's a boy and won't want to be covered in pink, however, I think he doesn't stand a chance! :) Today her big girl furniture is coming and she still seems really excited. We'll see how it goes.
