Today I started seriously thinking for the first time in a very very long time about planning our nursery. As I wrote before this is a big step for me since we lost 2 of our 4 babies in 2nd trimester, we were well into thinking and planning,so now planning is a bit unsettling for me and sad to say does not always bring back the happiest memories for us. But we have been planning to do some other things with the house and I thought I have to start thinking about that baby room sooner or later. So I sat down all afternoon and looked at stuff online. Once I got to looking and started thinking about how close we are to being in the book I started feeling a little better. I feel better to at least have a plan, and I may even buy some fabric. It is difficult thinking of a good look that is gender neutral, especially for me because believe it or not I love super girly huge bright florals with over stuffed buttony furniture. I would love to do the whole room in Marimeko or in the Liberty stuff we have at Target right now. Brian likes very clean mid-century modern so that makes it easier to do a neutral look and since that is what the rest of our house is I have come up with a couple of looks that I like. I love the multi color look and the rocking chair in this one is from Ikea which means we can afford it, especially because the crib is rather expensive for us even on sale. Also the print in this one is fabric so I could save a lot by making the bedding. The second look I love with the little owls but I don't think we can afford because the rocker is insanely expensive, the crib is expensive and the bedding is purchased. Anyway at least I now have ideas to think about. All we really need is a bed side sleeper, a car seat, oh and a baby!
