The Time Has Come! - GO!

Being 8 days from my due date, and feeling that I'll go into labor earlier (with everyone I know telling me so, too!) I've found myself envisioning how it will all go down.

Pretty much like this, I think: click here.

Nursery Paint Colors

I'm so sorry!

It came to my attention that I neglected to mention the paint colors used in our nursery. They are both Behr (available at Home Depot). The green is "Grass Cloth" and the blue is "Clear Water."

Hope that helps anyone who is wondering!

Nursery Sites That Inspire

Ooh, exciting! - there are now a couple pictures of our girl's nursery on the Baby Room Bio site, in the "Girl Rooms / Not so pink" category. Check it out!

When we first found out we were expecting a baby we immediately started speculating how we would decorate the nursery.

We knew what room it would be (the smallest of our three bedrooms), but we also knew that if we have another baby in the next couple years (we hope to), we'd like to move the "children's" room to our larger, current official guest room. The two kids would then share that room and the small - er, intimate - room would become our guest room.

So, although we wanted to decorate the nursery in some great and creative way, we also appreciated the idea that we'd eventually be able to move the nursery aspect to another room. Therefore we opted not to do any fancy or baby-oriented wall painting or semi-permanent decorations.

While searching for inspiration for all aspects of the nursery, I discovered the Baby Room Bio site, which features all kinds of nursery pictures with great ideas. I also love how there are specific categories like "Closets," "Vintage," "Glam Girl" and so many more. It was an amazingly helpful site!

Some other great sites for nursery inspiration are:
Spearmint Baby
Project Nursery

Have fun getting inspired or just being impressed by all the great ideas!

Finished Nursery!!

Our nursery is done (for the most part)!
And only 28 days till D-day. (B-day?)

We started the nursery when we didn't know if we were having a girl or boy (it's a girl if you're just tuning in).

Our goal was to have a nursery that was colorful and a great place for a child's imagination to grow. That's it, and I think we did a pretty good job!

The two things we still need are some kind of letters or sign that says our baby's name, which will go over her crib (on the blue wall), and the mobile that we are planning on getting (one of those "stim mobiles" like the one seen here).

These two pictures are of many. To see all the detailed pictures, complete with descriptions, click here.
