N is for nursery and A is for.....

i have finally gotten to the point where i can post some pictures of the nursery. (of course i'm still adding to it, rearranging, etc...but for the most part, it's complete.)
admittedly it is the nicest room in the house. a fact that hasn't escaped any of the boys, who have in turn said why can't my room be this nice. to which i reply, well when you were tiny, helpless, with no opinion, it DID!


some of the adornments were gifted to me/and the baby from dear friends. but the "A's" were made by me...more on that in a moment.
the paint job, and trim detail (which is hard to see in these pictures, but impeccably done) was done by stephan.

cuteness abounds in every corner!

his first picture...ultrasound at 20 weeks.


and now for all of the "A's"... most of you know the name, but i haven't actually 'revealed' it on my blog yet.
drum roll please.............
okay little ashton, we're realllly ready to meet you, hold you, cuddle you, snuggle you, spoil you, just BE with you! please join us SOON.

oh kim - it's such a great room. LOVE your star - did you do it?! i've been wanting to do some for holidays but need to get the stars themselves.

That room is so gorgeous! The colors are so perfect, especially that blue! You've inspired me to do something with my boys' rooms.

I love the name Ashton! When I saw the 'A's, for some reason I was guessing Aidan, but Ashton was such an awesome surprise because I hardly hear that name ever.

Where did you get all the 'A' forms? I love how different they all are.
