My whole world changed early in the morning on September 4th and I am the momma of a newborn baby! Okay okay, I believe you all now when you said that parenting is no joke. I mean I expected it to be hard, but that girl is a 24/7 operation! But I am so happy to have the job and to get to hold a pretty sweet baby even if it is all through the night. I'm a little bit infatuated with that girl!
With moving, our nursery set up was slow going already, but when we learned we were going to be induced early at 37 weeks, we knew it was go time and needed to get her nursery together ASAP! True, she's not actually sleeping in there right now (a bassinet in our room), but knowing where everything is and having it all organized has helped as we navigate the neediness of a newborn. And I just love going in there, it makes me so happy and I think it turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head.
If you recall, I shared my vision for her nursery with this blog post. Her room is my favorite room in the house. Whenever I sit in her rocking chair, holding this little pink thing, I can picture her playing on the floor, toys strewn everywhere. I can't wait! Except I can, because I already feel sad with the thought of her not being so tiny as she is now.
This room was carpeted when we moved in, and after spending many many hours in our last home cleaning the carpet from pet mischief, I have declared that I would never have carpet again. The rest of our home has wood flooring, but we were unable to find an exact match. We decided on this linoleum "tile" that we replaced the carpet with. It's waterproof and scratch proof, so we figured it would work best in a kiddo's room anyways. As for paint color, it is called "Starboard" from Sherwin-Williams. I have been wanting to use this shade of green for a while, and though it may seem a little different for a little girl's room, I love it. With all of the colorful accents, I don't think it makes the room dark, but maybe just dark enough to promote sleep when we do finally move little Bloom into her own room.

We are over the moon with our little girl. It's hard to believe that this perfect little human is the same little blobby grouping of cells we saw on the ultrasound screen at our first 8 week Doctor's appointment. Have a mentioned how much I love her!? Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this tour of my favorite girl's room! I so look forward to watching her grow in there.
