Our Baby’s Modern Nursery Reveal!
We finally finished our baby’s nursery after a few months hard work! A few images of our baby’s nursery are shown below. Our finished baby’s nursery is somewhat similar to our initial nursery inspiration board! After much research, I selected most of our selections and made sure Doug liked the selections as well before ordering; and Doug helped me immensely with the baby furniture, hanging of the art, hanging of the mobile, cleaning of the rugs, and rearranging of things in the house to make room for the nursery — it was definitely a team effort! It was quite fun pulling the items together for our baby’s nursery! We are quite pleased with the results! We wanted to make our baby’s nursery something that she can grow into, while incorporating art and fun elements as well to create a space that has good energy, feels welcoming, bright, modern, clean, relaxing, and peaceful. (We wanted to get the nursery done before I get too big and uncomfortable). Additionally, we are in the process of getting the final baby supplies we will need for when the baby arrives. We are slowly getting there! We do have a closet and dresser full of cute clothes, though! (Please note, when our baby sleeps in the crib, all of the stuffed animals and pillows will be removed for safety purposes!)
We have brought our fur girl, Victory, into the nursery a few times, and she is quite skeptical at this point. We know that she knows that something is happening with all the work we have been doing in the house and in the nursery on the weekends. Victory is quite an attentive and aware little sheltie girl! We will keep trying. Our Bradley birth teacher told us to treat Victory similar to an older sibling, in this case, and to do our best to prepare her (as much as we are able since we can’t explain in words/sentences to Victory what is occurring) and continue to give Victory her own attention so that she feels secure and continue with this course of action when the baby arrives. We have incorporated Victory’s ivory Tempur-Pedic Orvis dog bed in the nursery, so she will know that she is welcome, always. It took her a while to get used to coming into my office each day, so we hope, similarly, that we can get her into the nursery every day, at some point, as well. Victory has been an integral part of our journey, and we cannot imagine life without her! She is truly a loyal and loving little being! After the baby arrives, we imagine Victory will be right there with us during this next part of our journey and we would not want it any other way! It will be an adjustment for us all; however, we are truly excited for this season! The time is flying by so very quickly and we eagerly await the arrival of our baby girl!
