I really hoped I would be able to sleep better since I know baby is healthy, but no, I'm still up at my usual potty time and can't go back to sleep. Thought I would share this with you while I'm up. I am so guilty of a crazy obsession with all things baby that I've been shopping baby bedding, furniture, gear, you name it, for the past two years. I thought I had found the perfect bedding numerous times, but yesterday when I heard that it was a boy, I almost panicked because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do in his room (I know, that is crazy, lock me up now!). I knew it had to have brown and blue or green, but that is all I knew that I wanted.
Well, last night I went to my favorite baby bedding site Mod Pea Pod and as soon as I saw this, I HAD to have it!
It will look exactly like this, I think it is perfect and I don't want to change a thing on it. I am very fortunate that my parents are buying us our bedding as a shower gift and I am so grateful that I get to pick basically whatever I wanted. Well, I am IN LOVE with this! I had been thinking I would use a safari theme somewhere in my house, but I didn't really think about a nursery! Ha! I am going to use giraffes (you'll read why next), monkeys (because they are just so darn cute!), and lions (because I love lions) for all my decorations. I'm also going to get the little pillow to sit in my glider to pull it all together and so he will be able to use something from his bedding that his grandparents gave him for many years.
It was pretty funny because as soon as I saw it I remembered that I have a rather large, as in like 5 foot tall, wooden giraffe coat hanger (it looks like you could ride him, very cute) that my Grandfather made me when I was born. I forgot that when I got married I put it in my parent's attic because I really wanted to use it in a nursery one day. That is how I KNEW this was the theme and bedding for me. I am so excited to pass something down to my little boy (who at this time is either Nicholas or Jacob, I'm torn, but more on that tonight) that my grandfather made me (pretty much everything else is 100% girly! Ha!).
So, tell me what you think? Is it boyish enough? Will it look good with white furniture in a dark brown room?
