On a personal note, may I just say that the nursery post is written with so much joy, as I celebrate another friend who has struggled with miscarriage reaching 14 weeks in pregnancy....Mamas carry the burden of realizing just how precious our little miracles are, and how heartbreak is often, and inexplicably, a prerequisite for those miracles.
For me, this week marked 32 weeks, and for a second I did bad math and thought that meant only 40 days. I never screw up math, so I know that I officially now have pregnancy brain. In any regard - yikes; we are getting close! And we still have so much to do. We're (who is this control freak kidding - I'm) still designing the nursery changes for Deuce, who will inherit H's furniture, wall color, and myriad clothing options. But, I'm trying to give him a little something special all his own with a few relatively inexpensive decor upgrades. We have an elephant theme in mind, and I've picked up a few wall decals already (which are, by the way, a much less expensive wall option that "art").
|While I am otherwise at a loss to explain the appeal of Pinterest, it is quite useful, along with beeclip, for design projects.|
But, that still leaves me finalizing the bedding options, and the final lighting shade as well. So, I'm looking for your help here. Which to choose? Help us out reading public - we're running out of time to make these decisions!
The SkipHop bedding set? It's economical, and (bonus points) bumper-free design. But, the color scheme is not my favorite.
The Pottery Barn set? Navy or gray? The elephant applique is adorable; I'm not a huge fan of the quilt fabric, which would go over our rocking chair.
The Land of Nod set? Lots of vibrant color, but more of a zoo theme, rather than just elephants. It's pricey as well.
