What to do in Riley's room?

Figuring out what to do in Hayden's room was so easy... not so much this time. I can't make a decision and I am not sure I even love the options that I am thinking about. I need opinions :)

I love this crib! Of course it is $900 and not going to happen, but I hope I can find something similar out there for less.
I love this paint color and the tree on these walls, but these walls kinda lead to a shabby chic room, which I am not too sure about... Plus I have no idea where to find a bed skirt like that or where to have one made. I found just some cream colored organic looking bedding, but I don't know. I thought with the crib above and distressing an old dresser to antique-ish white would look cute... I am just not sure about this whole theme.

Here is something else that I like, but it would mean new wall ideas... I like this one because Hayden's room has birds on it, so it would be a different take on the same thing.

What do you think?

Chip turned 30 yesterday!

Birth stats

Look how old school the color of this pic is! He He :)

Doesn't Hayden favor him?

Baby Gates #2 has a name!

It's official... Riley Kathryn Gates will be baby #2's name!

When you ask Hayden where the baby is she lifts up my shirt and pokes at my belly button! It's so cute... I hope we aren't confusing her for when Riley is born :)

Baby #2 is a GIRL

We found out on Wednesday that #2 is a another girl. She is growing right on track and everything looks good. I can't believe that we are half way to meeting her! Now that we know she's a girl we can start doing all the fun stuff... naming, decorating, shopping!

You can see her face in all of these pictures!
The ultrasound was really neat. We saw her wave and at one point she had her little arm up by her face, just like her big sister did in one of her ultrasounds. For a minute there we didn't think we were going to get to find out if she was a boy or a girl because she had her legs crossed at the ankles and wasn't moving them... What a lady :) It's so crazy how much you can see on an ultrasound... She looked so squished in there, but Dr. Putterman told us that her forearm is only 2 cm long... She is still so tiny. Why am I so big then?
