The beginnings of a happy place...

So, I told you all a while ago that we were getting the crib delivered, as well as the bedding. Well... They arrived this week and we couldn't be more happy with the results so far!

The crib is BSF Baby Addison from Babies 'R' Us and the bedding is CoCaLo Snickerdoodle, also from BRU. The baby mattress is a Colgate Classica III Supreme (a dual-firmness foam mattress) that we researched high and low before purchasing. :) It is super firm on one side, then the other is made of egg-crate foam and is slightly less firm for Cohen to sleep on when we convert his bed to a toddler bed.

This is what Cohen's room is looking like so far:
My glider will go there in the corner behind me after Mom and I refinish it!

The set came with the diaper stacker, which I've been told is a useless item ;)

I love all the soft textures and colors of the quilt (which we'll hang on the wall for decoration while he's an infant)..

We like to see how tiny he'll look in his crib by laying his clothes in there. :)

I am so pleased with how the curtains turned out! It really softens the room and will provide some much needed darkness for Cohen's nap times! This is not the lamp I want here.. this is ours from our bedroom, but we needed extra light for the decorating. Hopefully I'll find what I'm looking for sooner or later.
This is what I have in mind for a lamp.. and I hadn't found one for a price I liked yet, but when I Google searched it just now to put a picture on here, this one from Lowe's came up for $44.97! That's more like it!

In a couple weeks, after we save up some more, we're going to hopefully get the dresser. Everyone has told us NOT to buy a "changing table" because after he outgrows it, we'll be stuck with a baby changing table and be needing a dresser. So, we've opted to find a 6-drawer, dresser that we can just set a changing pad on top of for now. We've found some great deals.. and of course, I'll show you once we buy it. :)

What do you think so far? :)


  1. I think it's adorable!! I love the colors on the bedding, very nice!

    And the mattress sounds perfect!! and yes, diaper stackers are pretty useless, but cute ;) Use it to store toys or books or something!

    We have a dresser, and I love having the changing pad up there. It's enough room to set a diaper on, plus we have a lamp, and the wipes warmer for our cloth wipes. There's not much space on those changing tables!! Plus there's an attached mirror to the dresser, and Jarvis loved looking in the mirror as a baby.

    Love it, oh, and love the name Cohen too, so sweet!

  2. Emily!! Love it! The espresso crib works so great with the bedding, I love the colors! It's so exciting to see all the pieces and parts coming together. :)
