Last week we did a gender check ultrasound.
We just couldn't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl...
My husband and I are so excited to know that we have a son on the way. It's much nicer being able to refer to him as "him" rather than "it."
And I'm super stoked to get started on this little guy's nursery! Now that I'm over my nausea and almost over the never-ending monster cold I caught last month, I finally have some energy to get some projects (and blog posts) done.
Fortunately, we painted his bedroom a couple of summers ago. It was the most hideous shade of pale yellow-green when we moved in, so I picked a color that I thought would work for a boy's or girl's room in the future. We went with Valspar's "Surf Spray" from Lowe's.
It's a bit brighter/more saturated in person, I think--a very happy color.
For the bedding and decor, I'm planning on an aqua/turquoise, green, and gray color scheme with bright pops of yellow-orange. Here are some fabrics from my stash I'm thinking of using for a baby quilt...
(I'm on the hunt for a good gray geometric print to throw in there, too.)
Truthfully, I've been hoarding the dinosaur print for several years.
It's from David Walker's Oh Boy! line.
I fell in love with it and HAD to have it just in case I ever had a son. :)
