The Beginnings of a Nursery

You'll never guess what I've been up to lately?!  Nothing. Absolutely nothing.  Doctor's orders.  I'm on modified bed rest.  Fortunately this time I'm not at the hospital like last time, but I'm only 29 weeks, so I guess anything can happen.

For now I am counting my blessings.  To be home among all of the sweet little voices and the anxiety for Christmas is something I don't take for granted!  The hospital is a wonderful place, but it is just so sterile and lonely this time of year.  It's good to be home!

My sweet little girl, Laney, is still happily in utero and her nursery is still a very boyish shade of blue.  We don't have a thing ready for her yet, so the planner in me got to work.  If I can't paint walls and organize a closet in real life I'll do it virtually!  So far this is what I've come up with... we'll paint the walls a pale gray and (if I can convince the hubby it's a good idea!) we'll stencil the back wall with a pattern.  Long white drapes, recovered rocking chair maybe in gray damask, pops of pink and a little bit of a vintage vibe if I can figure out how to squeeze that in there.

Yah! A girl! You are going to love having a girl- they are so different than stinky boys. hehe Hope you are off bed rest soon and can have fun with the pretty nursery! Love all of your ideas for it.

I love that combination! And, Laney is a beautiful name. I can't wait to see how the nursery turns out!

I know it's probably not always easy, but I so admire your sweet attitude. I think I would go crazy if I was on bed rest! I've been enjoying watching your nursery inspiration pins and can't wait to see how you pull all the best elements together into your own unique space! : )

Sorry to hear about the bed rest, but it's a nice excuse to play online! ;)

I'm 33 weeks yesterday with our first child and we have JUST NOW started the nursery. In fact, my husband is now just sitting down at 10:30 after a day of painting walls, adding base boards, etc. It's a fun process, though...I can say that because I've spent my day on the couch. Tee Hee...
