I’m still (very slowly) working on the baby’s nursery. All the necessities are there, it’s just the decorating part that needs work. I’d probably have more finished by now but I just haven’t been feeling very well lately. I’ve been all first-trimester queasy and exhausted. I asked the nurse about it at my last checkup and she said it’s most likely hormonal. Hormones are building back up in preparation for labor, which sometimes causes those first trimester symptoms again (although usually not as bad.) Fun… It’s ok though, it forces me to take it easy and rest. Mother nature is smart!
It’s also taken me a while to get going because for a long time I had no idea what direction to go in. I didn’t even know what colors I wanted. So I just keep adding, taking away, rearranging, finding new stuff, switching it around… It’s starting to come together a little bit better now.
Since we won’t really be using the crib for a little while anyway, I’m kind of using it as a big mood board. It’s a safe spot for all the extra decorations and art, and keeps the stupid cat from sleeping in there!
I need to get more frames so I can hang the rest of this art. (WHY can’t we have an IKEA closer than three hours away?) I’m also planning on constructing a mobile to hang over the crib. I have everything pulled out, just need to build it. If things go as planned, it should be really pretty. And I want to spice up the plain white curtains a little bit. Maybe add a rug, get a new ceiling fan or lamp, paint a small accent wall… and then I think I’ll be done.
Then maybe I’ll get the inspiration to finish Vada’s room! I can’t seem to figure out what I want to do in there. Decorating is hard. ♥
