Nursery Design for Baby #2

nursery1

Time to create a new nursery! The room we plan to use as baby #2′s nursery is currently a blank slate. It has tan walls, black doors, and dark gray carpet. We won’t find out the gender of the baby until August, so I’m just sticking to neutral colors until then. I’ll probably stay with mostly neutral colors anyway… knowing me. This is the only photo of the room I could find on my computer. It’s from the first day we saw the carpet installed in January (so Graham looks young).

Here are a few pieces to the room:

chandelier

This is the chandelier hanging in the nursery. It’s one of my favorites in our house.

I plan to reuse Graham’s crib and crib bedding even if the next baby is a girl.
It’s still in great shape and is an aqua blue color that feels gender neutral enough to me.

This glider may be the only new piece of furniture added to the nursery.
It is one of those pieces we can use in other rooms in the house after it’s no longer needed in the nursery.

elephant

I went ahead and ordered this sweet elephant for the new baby.
Graham loves elephants so hopefully the new baby will like it as well.

(I decided to take a few before photos today after all.)

The nursery window has a pretty view overlooking our backyard and trees.
The white grommet curtain panels are from Ikea. I’ve used them in two of our previous houses.

nursery3

I went ahead an hung Graham’s old newborn clothes in the closet. They’re too sweet!
I will supplement with a little pink if this baby turns out to be a girl.

We’re Expecting!

baby_announcement_tp

We’re having baby number 2 in December! I’m so happy to share the news with everyone. Yesterday we had an appointment and saw the baby on the ultrasound. That made it feel so real!

We’ve been talking with Graham about being the big brother. He’s excited but a little concerned about sharing his “choo choos” (trains) with the new baby. I hope they are good friends.

Here are a few outtakes from the Graham and ultrasound photo shoot in our front yard:

Graham’s Grandparents + New Swing Set

graham&nana7

Michael’s parents visited us a few weekends ago. It was their first time seeing our new house completed.
We spent most of the weekend catching up and searching for swing sets for Graham’s birthday.
We found one at Sam’s and it was delivered a few days after they returned to Pennsylvania so
Michael and I have been assembling it each evening for the past two weeks. It’s been a fun project!

Nana made Graham a few shirts and shorts.

He was a little timid to drive it at first but loved it once he realized it was fun. He’s so cautious.
