Ideas for the Baby's Room

Last night I was kept awake by the fact that I don't have a chair to nurse in the baby's room yet. I know I still have till April but I want things done. I was thinking about what chair I wanted and its from IKEA.
EKTORP Chair multicolor Width: 41 3/8 " Depth: 35 3/8 " Height: 34 5/8 " Seat width: 22 1/2 " Seat depth: 19 5/8 " Seat height: 17 3/4 "  Width: 105 cm Depth: 90 cm Height: 88 cm Seat width: 57 cm Seat depth: 50 cm Seat height: 45 cm
This is the very cushy chair I would like to have. Unfortunately, I think it is a little too high priced for me at $349.00

So this is the alternative...
EKTORP JENNYLUND Chair white/black Width: 30 3/4 " Depth: 33 1/2 " Height: 33 1/8 " Seat width: 18 7/8 " Seat depth: 21 5/8 " Seat height: 16 7/8 "  Width: 78 cm Depth: 85 cm Height: 84 cm Seat width: 48 cm Seat depth: 55 cm Seat height: 43 cm

Still a little high for me at $229.00 but I have sat in this one and it is comfortable. Then I thought about how I would really like a footstool to rest my feet on while I am feeding the baby. I remember seeing this fabric fluff footstool that had flowers sewn all over it. A lady used it for newborn portraits, I thought maybe I could find a way to make something like it. I found a pattern by Amy Butler! I am so excited!

This made me think of a beautiful mobile that Young House Love made for their daughters room. So I thought I would try to look for something similar. This is what I found and I am sticking with it! They are so beautiful and the real thing is my favorite flower.
Last weekend I went to Target and happened to find some owl decor. Unfortunately, I could not find any pictures on the website.

I might be overdoing it but there is no way to tell until it is all in the room.

New Year

A few things that I would like to accomplish this year:

1. Take a few photography classes
2. Learn more about homeschooling and put it into affect
3. Complete a few sewing projects
4. Read 25 books of my choice

That seems like a simple list. I think that once I know exactly what I want then I will make it more specific.

Happy New Year!
