We've done the birth plan, taken the classes, made the lavish purchases, and attended the loveliest shower with family and friends. Now that I've hit week 37 in my pregnancy we're playing the waiting game.
Setting up our daughter's nursery was a wonderfully collaborate process that all began on our mini-moon in Key West. When we visited the Audubon House we fantasized about having a large print in our baby's room. It was the foundation of our bright, slightly-vintage tropical theme. (We ended up getting ours from AllPosters.com for, like, hundreds cheaper.)
Quinn always takes me by surprise with his creativity; fresh out the gate he wanted to stray away from the overtly feminine, pink, babyish, powdery decor that is so commonly used. I adore the room's color scheme of teals, yellows, greens, and natural textures. We constantly find ourselves drifting in and sitting on the bed or glider and having long conversations. It's a warm, happy place that we can't wait to share with our little lady. Now we're sharing it with you.
Note: That painting above her crib does indeed have her name on it. We're not quite ready to share it on the interwebz. ;)
