We need to work in the nursery very soon, as I'm getting more run down by the day and want to have the energy to decorate the way I want. In there, we just need some sort of rocking chair and then would like to buy some bedding and wall hangings. Luckily we do have some general-neutral sheets and swaddles that will be fine for awhile, but I would love to really decorate the room and enjoy it like he's my first child (I don't want him to start getting a complex already!!!). The walls are already tan and we are leaving up the vinyl lettering with the words to "You Are My Sunshine", so that just means a few wall hangings and bedding. Here are some themes that I like, although we probably won't buy a full set unless it's cheaper that way:
Also from Target--I like the geometric stuff a bit better
Also Target (are you sensing a theme? I actually really like some Walmart, but am having trouble linking the photos here...)
I'm finding myself drawn more to greens than blues, but am not opposed to either. I do like muted colors more than bright, though.
I also need to buy a new cover to my nursing pillow because I broke the zipper last time. I have some Amazon gift cards thanks to Swagbucks, so I think I can get it for free that way.
I did realize, though, that there was one thing that I am going to start telling people we'd love if they ask what they can get us--restaurant gift cards and frozen meals! Until I started putting myself into this situation, I never would have thought of it, but I remember how overwhelming the thought of cooking was last time and realized that this would be perfect (and it will be my go-to gift for parents from now on, I think).
After doing our assessment, I'm actually fairly surprised at how little we need to buy to be prepared for Baby Boy. I've been buying some diapers and will need to stock up on size 1's when I see deals, but we're otherwise doing really well!
