Apologies to our 5 readers for the blog-silence in recent weeks. We have been pretty busy around here lately, but really I haven’t been blogging because I’m so pregnant and I don’t want to subject you all to my 24/7 train of emotions. Besides, everyone else writes so eloquently about pregnancy and motherhood and waiting and pregnancy essentials and labor tips all that stuff. I literally have nothing to say about anything, so… I won’t.
Instead, before the world has turned a little more and completely shut the door on my first baby’s babyhood, I thought I’d do a little post about Sara’s nursery that was. It’s now almost completely transformed into a little dude’s room for baby brother who, of course, will not use it until a few months down the road but preggo mama gots ta nest! Once it’s done, I’ll share it with you but for now won’t you take a long, rambly, picture-heavy walk down memory lane with me?
We start with the basics, and very poor picture quality, of course. Our nursery is our very tiny third bedroom which could only be a nursery or an office. Pretty much all we could fit in it was the crib, chair, dresser and tiny rug. From here I picked up some fabric for a crib skirt and curtain…
And I made a mobile based on this pin. I really like how it turned out and it has added sentimental value because one of the doilies I used was crotched by my late Grandma Ross.
SK loved her room too! I remember excitedly putting the nursery together but having novice mom fears that she would never sleep in it. Luckily we never had a problem; hopefully her brother takes after her in that respect!
