I’ve mentioned before that I come from a family of all girls. I (so far) only have nieces. And…well…there’s A. When I was pregnant, I didn’t find out the sex until she was born. I know a lot of people who hate that…but for me, I wanted that surprise. I also didn’t want to shop since we’re superstitious and didn’t bring anything baby-related into the house until baby was home.
When Dr. W announced that A was a girl, I nearly fainted. Yes I did just have a C-section after almost 30 hours of labor and I was exhausted, but I was just so sure “she” was a “he” that I couldn’t catch my breath.
Obviously, all I hoped for was a healthy baby. But deep down…I wanted a girl! I’d be lying if I said otherwise.
Now…my beautiful friend DR just had her 3rd baby. (WHOA). And like the other 2, she didn’t find out the sex. Her first 2 are really 2 of the most amazing, beautiful, smart, funny, sweet boys I’ve ever met. But when I got the txt about #3, I can’t say I wasn’t just super super excited that ITS A GIRL!!!!!
Every mommy should have a little pink in their world…and I was completely floored and honored that DR asked me to put together something for their nursery! Mood boards for nurseries are something that I love. I wish I put together some more for my own use when A was cozy in my belly, but I was busy living a life of a childless person and didn’t have time for silly things like decor in my nursery. Until she arrived and I smashed together some ideas and got her all set up!
So now, I just hope that more people I know get pregnant or decide to decorate their kids/baby’s room & let me get creative!
What makes it even better, is that DR loved it and I think it’s actually going to look a lot like this inspiration board! For sweet AR. (another A baby….they have a special place in my heart!)
