Matthew and I have been having so much fun seeing Cole develop and grow. He's such a happy baby...and finds new ways to charm and melt our hearts each day.
Here's our sweet little guy laughing for the first time...
Have a happy day! Stay warm!

I have had several people
nag encourage me to post pictures of the nursery, so today I thought I would finally do it! This was an on-going project of mine throughout my pregnancy that took a lot of blood, sweat and tears (tears of joy that it was done!) and was such a pleasure to put together for our little one.
Baby Cole's Nursery
We found the crib on Craigslist and the bassinet
(which we keep in our bedroom now)I found
at a thrift store. My mother and I lined it with a soft
off-white material for additional comfort.
The green knitted blanket is a gift made by my mother
and the blue one across the bed was made by a
friend of mine. Handmade baby gifts are the best!
at the Christmas Tree Shops, as well
as the brown sisal rug in the middle of the room.
This is my new favorite store...they have A-mazing deals!
I found at a garage sale for a steal. I painted them a light
gray. The bed & breakfast tray I found at Goodwill
and painted the same color.
It's surprising comfortable and has already
gotten a lot of use. ;0)
I love the drawers for the storage space and
use them to house all of his clothes and
just waiting for the perfect use for them.
Matthew spray painted some old wooden frames white
and I used fabric I already had on hand
to create the backdrop.
with a coat of white paint.
I just love the way they coordinate with the rest of the
friend of mine. It was too cute not to frame. ;)
The book on the left is what I used as my inspiration
when choosing colors for the nursery.
colors drawn from the book inspiration and a nifty
pom-pom maker given to me by my sweet
mother-in-law, Ruthanne. ;0)
Love & Happy Decorating,

It's been nearly 3 months since I've written in here...wow! So much has happened! I've had a baby as most of you know....Thanksgiving and Christmas have come and gone.....and now it's already 2011!! My oh my! I'm going to try and be better at blogging in the future and possibly try and recap the last couple months, but for now....here's a few pics to give you an idea of how life has been in the Gaffin home.
This is the last baby bump picture taken
of me before our sweet Cole arrived.
Here I am at 40 weeks. ;0)
First picture with Daddy and Cole Bryan
on 11/16/10. Already smiling!
Back at home from the Birthing Center
8 hours after giving birth. I know it ain't pretty...
but this is real life, folks. Ha!
Picking out a Christmas tree. Where's Cole? ;)
Napping with Daddy.
More posts to come!!!
