oh boy!...

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.  :)


  1. Congrats! My daughter is having a boy as well! I'm also making baby quilts. One has to be Winnie the Pooh and the other whatever I want, time fo rfabric shopping!

  2. Congratulations! I love your color scheme. I have cute girl fabric if I have a girl and Im not even pregnant yet.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so, so happy for you and your husband! And I am excited to see how baby boy's nursery turns out! You are super crafty and inventive! I'm in love with that dinosaur print! (Okay... all the ones going into your baby's quilt!) I have had three little girls and no boys yet... But I have been collecting cute boy outfits, blankets, vest and tie sets, and what not for the past three years! (From the time we found out we were pregnant with our first baby) Best of luck as you continue to blossom in your pregnancy! Heavenly Father has blessed you! <3 MUCH LOVE!

  4. I love the prints. And the paint color. And congrats on a boy! We have a baby boy and I always wanted a girl as well as my hubby wanted a girl but we love that w head a girl. God knows what he was doing. I pray for a healthy pregnancy for yo and baby boy. :)

  5. So exciting! Congrats to you and Brandon:)

  6. Congratulations! And that dino print is SO adorable (not to mention, that quilt is going to be so wonderful- I love the colors)!

  7. Congratulations! Boys are so much fun! At our house, having Grant around is like being in a cartoon musical fused with superheroes and dinosaurs.

  8. Love the color scheme you've got going on there... can't wait to see more pictures of the nursery!
