Hello blogging world. It has been a few months since I posted anything but I am back and will try and do better with posting. 2011 has proven not to be my year so far. 2010 ended with happy news and then came 2011. That news turned out to be not so fabulous.

We started working on the third bedroom as a nursery the moment we found out we were pregnant. It was the most neglected room in our entire house. And probably on purpose. Knowing I wanted to have kids, I didn't see the purpose in doing anyting with the room until we were ready. Why spend money when you don't have to right? So it ended up being a room with a bed and that's about it. I knew right away what I wanted the nursery to look like and Chad got working on it.

When we found out that there was no heartbeat, I figured we'd close that door for a while and not finish the project. Chad kept right on going. And at first it was hard for me to walk in there and see all the love that he was putting in it, but now it is easier. I keep reminding myself that there will be a little Hammond in there one day....just not in August like we had thought.

Each day gets better and sometimes I hit a "roadbump" so to speak and something will remind me of it and make me sad.  But I am able to pull myself out of that "slump" a lot faster.  And I am really proud of all the love, sweat, and tears that my husband has put into this room.  He's an amazing man....I hope you enjoy the pictures of our "one day nursery."

Me deciding on a paint color-not this one.

Putting up crown molding

Working on the vertical slats

Chad added a fiber optic ceiling.  400 of these litte guys had to be drilled into the ceiling.

Framed in the window, finished painting all the woodwork, and picked a color

I made the curtains-with Chad's help of course

Another view (I realize the lamp doesn't match)

This post brought tears to my eyes. I love you guys. I pray for a little baby H in there soon.

You guys did an awesome job with the room! I love the color you picked out. And all the lights Chad hung.
