The Sorensen's

Rock a bye baby....

I know I should have posted pictures of our finished babies room before Colin arrived but I didn't get around to it. When I was picking up the house the other day I thought Mike and I both worked hard to finish Colin's room so I should show it off especially for all the hard work Mike put in to help get it done.

I made the bedding....SURPRISE! I'm not one for projects but I couldn't find anything I wanted to buy in the stores so I decided to make my own. I wanted it to be super simple. We went for an antique baseball look for the theme of the room. We are hoping Colin doesn't hate baseball when he is old enough to realize how his room is decorated.

You probably can't tell but in the three red frames are a picture of Colin's Grandpa Parker, Papa Sorensen and Mike playing baseball when they were little boys (this is my favorite part about his room).
Mike painted the room, put up the railing on the wall, put the glider chair together and hung all the pictures on the wall. He only managed to almost take his eye out with a nail once. It turned out just how I wanted it. Hopefully this doesn't bore everyone too much but I had to show off our handy's pretty limited in our home.
