Trackers room was not the easiest thing for Ryan and I to get ready.
I had one vision and he had a completely different.
I got a good amount of ideas off pinterest and we tried to put our own spin on everything.
We re-used as many things as possible to keep the cost down.
All the major furniture was Makenzies. That was a hard thing to convince me to re-use. I have always thought I wanted to keep her things hers and couldn't imagine another child using them.
After much discussion we decided to use the majority of her big items. and I am so glad we did.
We painted the room a light grey.
Ryan and his Dad did the wood wall. We were going to stain it but once it was all sanded down and put on the wall I loved it just the way it was.
While we were at the cabin this summer we found these old coloring books that used to be Ryan's when he was little. The only pictures he colored was cowboy or horse ones. hilarious.
I thought it would be cute to frame a couple of our favorites and put them in Trackers room.
Tracks first real pair of cowboy boots. He has those cute John Deer crib boots that are smaller than these but these are his first real pair. He probably wont fit into them until he is closer to a year. They are so cute and tiny. I cant wait to see them on his little feet.
My incredibly crafty sister made this cute name banner for Trackers baby shower.
I had to find a place to put it up in his room. I love it.
I did my best to sew a few things in his room. I had my sister and MIL help me with a few projects because sewing is not my forte. I am horrible at it and have no patience.
Its a disaster when I get the machine out.
I did sew these pillows by myself. Don't look to close but they work.
Ryans mom took these pictures of his uncles horses. I snagged a few of my favorites and mounted them on pieces of wood. His mom also found this adorable picture of Ryan when he was little on a goat and his Grandpa on his horse. I love these pictures.
I found this small pallet at work one day. It was just what I was looking for. I stained it and Ryan turned it into a book shelf. We love to read bedtime stories around here. We grew quite a collection with Makenzie and its only grown bigger with Tracker. We read every night. Its one of my favorite moments of the day.

We were going to get Tracker a new dresser but decided to just use my old one. I have had this thing pretty much my entire life. It was an ugly brown with gold knobs but with a little paint and new hardware it was good as new. I couldn't get the color to look right in these pictures. Its more of a dull grey/blue. I don't like the color in these pictures so just know it looks better in real life.
I found this cute box to put all his diaper stuff in and painted it.
We were given this sweet statue which made me think of Makenzie and Tracker right away.
This is Kenzies star that our friends the Anderson's gave us shortly after Kenzie passed. It was sooo sweet and I have been waiting for the perfect place to hang it.
I used to sing 'You are my Sunshine' all the time to Makenzie. I love that song.
Now it means even more with Tracker and we sing it several times a day.
It describes him perfectly.
I had a hard time trying to figure out where to put this bookshelf that Ryan made for Makenzie. We decided to still use it for books and toys and put it in one of the closets.
The other closet stores clothes and diapers.
After months and months of preparing for this little boy I just cant believe he is really here.
I love his room. As simple as it is I hope he likes it and can grow in it.
