Our Boy Nursery

When we first started looking at new homes a few years ago, we would walk through the model homes and we would picture our life in that home. We envisioned our future with children and picked our home with that thought in the back of our minds. Our conversations often turned to, "this room would be our nursery" or "this neighborhood would be great for children".

When we moved into our current home, we designated a room as the nursery and literally shut the door and never walked in there until just recently. For awhile there I considered turning the room into something else because even walking by the shut door would make me feel sad and disappointed, but I knew that I would always think of it as the "nursery" and changing that would be too painful for me. I finally opened the door just a couple weeks ago and just sat on the bare floor, thinking about how all of our hopes and dreams are finally coming true. I imagined what it would be like to bring our baby home to this room and how I would soon be spending tons of time in this room that I couldn't even walk in a few months ago.

We find out the sex on March 11th (a month from today!) and I'm looking forward to decorating our nursery after that point. I want our child to look back at all of our planning and hoping, and to think about how much he/she is loved. It might be a little early to start nursery plans but for me it has been a long time coming, so I give you our boy nursery inspiration (maybe, I have way to many ideas)...

  1. I am the same way with our nursery...except that we are tight on space and had to put a few things in there. I am so happy for you that you are able to start dreaming and planning. Love the little boy's room idea. Can't wait to see the little girl's room!

  2. Ohhhh I love it!! Where do you find this stuff from?

  3. Thanks Ashley and Anne! The links are at the end of the post :)

  4. Hi! I'm just popping by from the August Bump Board! This is so, so, so similar to what I did in my son's room. He has a similar polka dot bedding, his curtains are your wall color, and I have a ton of bright paper lanterns to hang...when I finally get the motivation. If I can ever get him to keep it clean, I might actually post some pics over on my blog.
