We have finally managed to finish the baby’s room this weekend. I am in my 37 week and our little fellow has his special room waiting for him. It took us three months to finish everything, from painting 2 walls and then deciding exactly what furniture and other stuff to buy. Now when we see it ready we couldn’t be more happy and we keep imagining how our baby will fit in the whole picture. I can’t believe how close we are and how emotional it is to see his room waiting for him. Waiting for your child to be born brings out a long list of emotions: excitement, fear, happiness, anxiety all linked by the bond that you already have created with him throughout the nine months.
But back to the room. We went for yellow and grey with all the furniture being white. I wanted something else besides blue and yellow seemed like a good choice. Also I kept on thinking that this is a baby’s nursery so it needs to be practical and enjoyable for a mama and baby. I could have went for a more fancy look, but in the end, a baby needs space to move, to play and display his toys. Also I had to make sure that I have enough space to store all the things a baby needs, and believe me, once you start buying and gathering, it is quite a lot.
In case you are interested, all the furniture and accessories are from IKEA and the big hippo is from Toys”R”us.
