Our baby space

As we prepared to become first time parents we didn't know if we would be blessed with a girl or boy. I fell in love with the idea of a calm, cool, blue nursery - even if we had a girl - I wanted that space to be fresh and tranquil and blue was the color that did that. When we moved to our current house I wanted to keep the nursery blue - so we found a similar blue and went for it again. I loved it.

We moved Charley to a big boy room when we were expecting our second. Number two was a surprise too and we stuck with the blue. I always assumed we would accent with some pink if a girl was what we were given.

As we wait for this third little miracle to arrive I am amazed that this blue nursery is still where I want to rock my third baby. I couldn't capture the blue correctly when snapping these pictures. But I think you can catch a taste of it. Here are just a few glimpses of the space waiting to be invaded by a little bean that is going to be swaddled up into a little burrito.   A little burrito who will give this room the scent of baby. 

These tiny bows are the only new thing we have added to this room so far.  A friend of my sister's (and mine) gifted me with these two little hair clips...just in case we have a girl (thank you Peggy).

My phone buzzed last night and I thought for sure I needed to get up and grab my overnight bag! Ahhhh this baby too will be loved to the max and sleep like a little tiny bundle in that room.

It looks so tranquil. Is that like a periwinkle blue? That is what we went with for our first nursery and I loved that room.

The room is gorgeous! We too ended up with a blue nursery...and had a girl. We kept it that way, it's so tranquil.

Sarah! I LOVE it.. There is no way I could go 9 months not knowing what I'm having! I like to plan, but I find it VERY exciting when other people do. When exactly is your due date again?
PS I'm in love with your diaper bag :)

very cute! I am at a loss when it comes to getting the "babies" room ready. Whatever the little one ends up being determines whose room he/she will be in. sigh.... Love the little bows on the blinds though. cute cute.

Love it! Blue is my favorite color! If you do have a girl, you can add little splashes of pink easily enough. More hair bows...a little pink dress hung on the wall...etc.

With my first, I didn't know what I was having, but I just *knew* it was a girl. It was! My Mom made all the Precious Moments blankets and decor from scratch. (Back then, I couldn't find PM pre-made!) The main color was blue, albeit slightly toward an aqua hue. All the little ribbons and accents were pink. But those could have been changed easily enough if I'd had a boy.

#2 and #3 were boys. Mom made a few additional PM items that were a bit more boyish looking...and changed out the pink ribbons, of course!


Can't wait until your little peanut is here! Two of my blog buds had babies last month. One had a *big* girl...and the other had a *teeny* boy. LOL!

Wow...we are very similar! Our kids' nursery looked much like this before they arrived!! There's something soothing about a neat row of miniature diapers, no? My favorite is how the board books in the mini stacks show slight signs of "love" for this third baby.

Beautifully done.
