First, we painted (it's a light/medium gray, if it isn't obvious with the sunlight overtaking the picture!):
Then, we brought in the furniture (the crib, A's changing table and glider and a bookcase), and washed and assembled the bedding:
As you can see, and may remember from a previous post, we're doing a whale/nautical theme, and I've found some super duper adorable things on Etsy to go with it. LOVING how the paint color turned out!!
I cannot wait until the room is entirely finished, and moreso, when we bring our son home to it! After I finished putting things together, I took a little break in the rocking chair with Roscoe (the stuffed dog) and moreso than I have the entire pregnancy, I felt really connected to my son. I could finally picture myself bringing him home and rocking him and talking to him in the middle of the night (which is actually laughable, seeing as how Ava never once slept in the crib...) while nursing him. For me, I really need concrete, visual things to make it feel real, and putting his nursery together has certainly done that for me!
