Rhys' Nursery - Thank you, Baba & Mama Nili & Aunt Soraya

Rhys' room is coming together beautifully! Thanks to his grandparents, Baba and Mama Nili, and his Aunt Soraya, he has furniture!! It has all come in, and Russell has put it all together...all by himself, in fact! I went to Bible study last Wednesday evening and came home to this!
The crib will convert to a day bed and then a double bed!! There's even a functional drawer underneath to store diapers, clothes, etc.
The dresser is SO nice! Huge drawers, and the changing station on top will be so helpful for changing Rhys' diapers! Russell chose the Nautica theme, so when we saw this sailboat lamp, we immediately liked it! The blue shade offers a soft, sweet color when the lamp is on at night. Notice the mirror, too!Finally, the most comfortable of all...the glider and ottoman. I've found Russell sitting (ie, gliding away!!) in it at night, reading or just resting. :) I'm wondering if I'll be able to stay awake in the comfort of this chair while feeding Rhys at crazy hours! :) We'll see!
"Thank you, Baba, Mama & Soraya! We appreciate SO MUCH these generous gifts! Your grandson and nephew ;) will enjoy growing up with this nice furniture, as it should serve him for years to come!"
