My monkey's room

I have been DYING to participate in "show us where you live Fridays" and since we don't have a house of our own I have not been able to post.... until now!!!!!!!!! When we moved home from Ft. Bliss we moved in with my husbands parents until we got a place of our own... which we finally have now and we close in 3 weeks!!! We live upstairs and have two bedrooms one is John's and it is connected to ours by a hollywood bath. It's really perfect for us! Anyways here is my little monkey's room! We went to IKEA today and I think I am going to do a jungle theme for his room now... I love my chocolate and robin's egg theme but he loves bright colors and I love to watch him stare at all the colors and IKEA had these adorable huge jungle leaves that mount on the wall and a bunch of stuffed animals that are adorable- I actually have one in a picture below!

I appologize for the order of the postings I'm just glad I uploaded everything last night because we are out of town and I am having to work from another computer because mine will not work online here and I can't move the pictures around and BTW John was AMAZING on the road trip slept all 3.5 hours so amazing especially since he HATES his carseat!

So here is my Little Monkey's room...

This is the least attractive part of the room but is my crafting area wear I make all my cards... we'll that was before John was born!! and it's a mess right now!

This is the view of the room from the bathroom. I am in love with my chair for the first 2 months I LIVED in that chair. I slept more there than in our bed. I got to the point I would sleep through the feedings and not wake up... but hey ANYTHING for sleep right!

This is a close up of John's first trophy... my little angler! Oh yes we are famous and everything... we made the paper!!!

This is my favorite piece of furniture... Jeff and I painted this before he was born. The drawers are a very deep chocolate with robin's egg nobs... I am in love with it!!! It looks like we bought it this way! above the dresser is my favorite picture of John. It was after his bath and he is screaming crying and I just love this picture!!!

Here is another picture of my "feeding station." Notice the talevera pot on the shelves... Jeff bought me a 3 piece set for my birthday last year and I LOVE them!! Also there is the camel from IKEA... isn't he adorable!

This is a view of the room from the door. There is a double bed in there with a beautiful chocolate bed spread that I scored at Target for 17$. It was on the clearance rack no price tag and not another one in the store. I was PUMPED when they told me 17 dollars!!!

this is the wreath a friend had made for me for the hospital door. I love it!

That's the tour of John's room right now... sorry it was basically backwards! hope you liked it! hope we can participate again... now I'm off to bed after a LONG day of driving and shopping!
