Hadley's Nursery/Big Girl Bedroom: Crib Bedding

 Over the last month, Tal and I have painted Hadley's room, 
as well as added the big girl bedding, nightstands, and lamps:

Now Hadley's crib is ready for her arrival! 

A few weeks ago, Tal put together the crib, 
which Grandma Barbara bought for Savannah 6 years ago:

Today I added the bedding 
(and of course we'll remove the toys before we put Hadley in the crib):

When I was pregnant with Savannah, we bought a crib bedding set for $200.
 It was a waste of money. We never used the blanket or diaper holder:

For Hadley's crib, I kept the bedding simple and inexpensive. I bought the crib sheet and ruffled skirt for $35 total. Tal and I chose not to put a bumper in the crib. According to The American Academy of Pediatrics, crib bumpers increase a baby's risk of SIDS and suffocation.

Over the next couple weeks, I'm going to paint some wall decor for Hadley's room, 
add some pretty trim to the curtains, and start painting the dresser:
