Hey guys, so I ended up taking last week off from blogging. I had full intentions of posting something, but never got to it with so much going on lately. Plus, it was my birthday on Sunday!
I told my husband that all I wanted this year was to get PROFESSIONAL family photos taken. So on Saturday, we drove an hour and a half (I wanted to get far away from where we are living, haha!) and met with our photographer who did an AMAZING job! I am so excited to see the photos!
Anyway, moving on with today’s post!
I am so excited to share my son’s nursery with you all! He is almost 17 months old and I’m not sure how much longer we will hold off with transitioning him out of his crib (I’m hoping to wait as long as possible 😉 ) and creating more of a “big boy” room for him. Plus, I took some awesome photos for his baby book that I have really wanted to share! 🙂
As soon as we found out that we were pregnant, I hopped onto Pinterest to begin looking at ideas. Pretty much our entire house has the same color scheme since we got married. Everything is black and white with red accents. We love it! But, I have been moving more towards lighter and brighter colors. So I knew from the start that I wanted our baby’s room to be white and gray with touches of yellow. (We later added some mint to the room when we found out we were having a boy.) I knew that the white, gray, and yellow could easily be reused for all of our children since they are all pretty gender neutral colors. (Although, I’m sure if we are ever blessed with a baby girl, I can guarantee that there will be A LOT of pink in her room 😉 ).
So anyway, here is our son’s adorable little nursery!! 🙂

I believe the first thing I ever bought for his room was this elephant canvas print hanging above my glider. I did not plan on having an animal theme, but we did end up having some elephants and giraffes (thanks to the gray and yellow colors) and that ended up being pretty cute.

A while after he was born, we added a few more things to his room, such as a gallery wall above his changing table and a little reading nook near the glider.
His nursery is by far my FAVORITE room in our house! I just love the little details that are in his room that make it special! I love that he loves to play in his room and that we can sit and read in the glider. I love that I have nursed him SO MANY TIMES in that glider!

I put so much time and thought into his room to make it special for him, and I am so happy with how it turned out. It is so special to have a room all ready for your baby when you bring them home for the first time (even if they will spend the next few months sleeping in your room 😉 ).
Well, I hope you enjoyed these photos of our baby’s nursery.
