Payton's Nursery - Custom Made!!

Here it is!!
When we found out we were having another girl, I decided that it would probably be best to get all new crib bedding as Alexa was VERY attached to her crib at the time. I figured she would adjust better to a new sibling using the crib if it didn't look like her bed at all anymore. And since I LOVE pink & brown together, I wanted to go with that color scheme. However, I just couldn't find anything that I really loved. But I told my mom that pink and brown were the colors if she wanted to make a quilt to go along with whatever bedding I chose.
Days and weeks passed and I finally decided I'd just order or buy something while my mom was here instead of before since we didn't move Alexa from the crib until just 3 weeks before Payton was born. And in order for her to make the move to the big girl bed, we had to completely take down the I wasn't planning on putting it back up until Payton was a couple months old and ready to move into the girls' we had time.
Well, my mom shows up with this BEAUTIFUL quilt she made, PLUS all the leftover material and says, if I want, she can just make a crib skirt to go with it. And just like that, she whipped up a crib skirt with no pattern!! Amazing. So we got pink sheets to match and a brown bumper pad and we were good to go. I absolutely LOVE my custom made crib bedding. Thank you mom, it turned out wonderful and I know Payton will love her quilt and pillow for years to come.
She's been sleeping soooo much better since we decided to put her in her own room. So that's what we spent last week (Kevin's week off) doing. Getting everything organized and moved around so that both girls could have their own room...and it's worked out great.
See...she already DOES love it!!
Although, silly me, I thought by them not sharing a room, I wouldn't have TWO kids up all night long, but the past several days, Alexa has done just that regardless. Not sure what's going on in her little world these days...but she better start sleeping ALL night long again soon before this tired mama goes crazy!!
And here's the grouping of pictures I put above Payton's changing table. Thanks again Amanda for taking these beautiful pictures. To see more of Amanda's fabulous talent, go here.
