  • Is anyone here creating a new nursery or re-using one from a previous baby? Im sure alot of this will be determined once you find out the gender, but i was wondering what everyone had in mind...if you have a few ideas, please share them!

    as of now, I dont know what we will be doing. The baby will sleep in our room in the basinett (its all white/cream with lace, same one we used for Lola) and then he/she will be moved into their own room. Im going to wait until we find out the gender before making any real decisions, but if it is a boy I would like to do a surfer surf boards, etc. If it's a girl, we might use Lola's lady bug bedding.

  • Well, we have a three bedroom home, with two kids already. So, I plan on putting both kids we have now in one room with beds, dressers and school desks (we homeschool). All toys will be moved to an old room that was a bedroom, but no longer has a closet. I figure this will make toy cleanup everyone's job, and not the "its not my room problem." Then the other bedroom will be nursery with baby's dresser, crib/bed for now. I don't know what we'll do if we have more in the future, but we'll have to figure that out when/if it comes.

    As for decoration, we never really had a theme for our nurseries. My son's was off white with Blue's Clues border and window shade. We repainted it yellow last PG and kept border and shade, but now have a ladybug closet curtain I made up too. I wanted to repaint the nursery, but I don't know if we'll have the money to do it. Things are very tight and other things take priority over paint. So, well see.

  • The baby will be in our bed until he/she is at least 18 months I'm sure. We have a crib and space in our room next to my bed to put it up, but DH said he wasn't going to assemble it again to collect dust
    I told him it was a great spot to collect baby toys and blankets, but I doubt I'll convince him to go through the trouble! Not that we really need it anyway as I'd never put the baby in there

  • We have a three bedroom house and we're in one room, one's the guest room and one is going to be the baby's room. I bought the crib bedding this weekend. We WERE going to do a firefighter theme but I changed my mind and decided to just do colors so we can put whatever stuff we want in it (firetrucks, tractors, etc) I thought it might be overkill to try and do a theme.
    Anyway, the room is HUGE and it's an old farmhouse so there are no for furniture we're doing a crib, changing table, 2 wardrobes, and a twin bed. The floors are hardwood and we're going to get a big area rug for it. Here's a link to the bedding I bought:


    And we're going to paint 2 walls blue and 2 walls green and then all the curtains, bed skirt, diaper stacker are solid yellow.
    I'll be taking lots of pictures once we get started (we plan to do that next weekend)

    I can't wait! I love to decorate!
