Itty Bitty Boy

I knew the minute they said "boy" at the ultrasound what I was ordering for his room.

Bedding:
A cute little bag for when he is a little older:

We purchased the crib, dresser, and glider the other day - all in white (the glider has red fabric). I want to do a darkish blue with the crisp white furniture. Once the bedding gets here (any day now!) I can work on choosing a good color. I wanted something a little more sophisticated than plain ole baby blue - something that he can grow up with. I think baby blue would get old after a little while... I like the blue in the rail road stripe on his bedding...
I need to find a colorful rug to bring together all the colors of these trains.. hopefully IKEA has something good.
My entire family is Union Pacific, which is where the trains come in. I need something train-like for over the crib that has his name. After that, no more trains. I don't want it to be too much of one thing.

Two things...what about painting like the lower half the dark blue and the top white? With like a chair rail or something to divide? 2nd thing...how cute would it be to find someone to make you a train that's his name...like the Engine have an L on it, then train cars for the O-G-A and the caboose for the N? I'm seeing like something out of wood?

Oh...and I LOVE the train idea, and I'm so excited that you get to use it on a sweet little boy!!! :)
