With our first IKEA round down (for the baby at least) and a few other purchases from Target and Etsy, we have a pretty good start on our nursery! Especially considering that we are only 15 weeks along... we will most definitely be ready by 25 or so weeks from now, at least ready in the sense that we will have a room ready. As first time parents it can be a little bit intimidating to figure out what you'll need, what you just want but shouldn't spend $50 on, and what items are just incredibly unnecessary. Luckily there are already some great mommy bloggers out there with lists upon lists of things you'll need for a newborn, items to take to the hospital, or advice ranging from what kind of diaper bag to use to what kind of bouncy toys they prefer. It is nice to have real moms, who are currently mothering with what is available now, to turn to for advice in addition to the wonderful people's faces that I so cherish everyday.
These are just a few of the things that I have found that I am lusting over for decor/purpose in our little one's room. Some of them we have already, some of them are items that cost to much so we might DIY or just not buy, and others are things that we are dreaming of and might register for. We don't really have a theme for the room or a color scheme... unless you count white white splashes of color. I am noticing a trend in animal prints and toys, but any animal theme was entirely unintentional.
Regardless of what we end up buying for our baby or how we end up decorating this little one's room, I am just really excited to someday meet it! In the end it won't matter what we bought or how we arranged things, it will really just matter that the three of us are happy and safe in our little house and that is all we as for. But it is fun to dream, right?
