Aiden's Room and 1 Month

I have been so busy and so behind that I have forgotten to post pics of the nursery.  It has definitely been a work in progress but finally has come together.  For some reason, I knew from the get go that I was having a boy.  So there were a few things that I had picked out from market before I officially found out the sex.  I did delay in ordering it but in my mind I had a picture of how I wanted to nursery to look.  I love elegant nurseries and wanted something just very soothing. Even though babies respond to colors early on I couldn't help myself from leaning toward soothing blues and taupe's.  So here are a few pics. There are still a few things I would like to do eventually but I haven't found the right accessories.  The nursery will just have to develop as he does.
 The bedding was custom made from HauteBaby in Dallas and the glider/recliner by Best chairs (storytime series) is one of the most comfortable chairs I've ever sat in. Up close, it is upholstered in a paisley to match the bumper pads. My personal favorite part of the room is the chandelier. Not exactly masculine but he's a baby. The rug, safari animals and rug were all ordered by my mom.

How adorable is this painting by Rachel of The Peek-A-Bootique? She made it to match my bedding.  I got the hooks from Hobby Lobby and hung them myself underneath the canvas.  I just couldn't resist taking a pic of Aiden to show ya'll how he sleeps (and no I do not lay my child down to sleep in a crib with the pads in.  This was strictly while I took the pics)
The crib is by Bratt for Restoration Hardware and I love this ceramic pacifier holder my aunt gave me.
The dresser was Ben's grandmother's that I had made into a changing table.  And how adorable are these shoes my mom gave me?

On a separate note today Aiden is 1month old! I can hardly believe it.  I guess time really does fly when you are running around like a crazy person trying to get a newborn on a schedule.  Some days, I don't know where my mind goes.  Like yesterday, I was so tired and wanted to make peanut butter brownies for our monthly Supper Club.  I forgot the peanut butter mix that makes the brownies rise.  So I made peanut butter fudge instead (and then I chose to leave it at home)!  I look forward to seeing my baby boy grow.
