This pregnancy wasn't a planned pregnancy. It wasn't planned because of some health issues in the past, I didn't think I could have children. My husband and I have an amazing relationship and always said that if we couldn't have children, that it was OK. We both believe that everything happens for a reason. No matter what, we would be happy.
When I found out I was pregnant... I was in total shock. After I found out I was pregnant, I prayed it was a boy. My husband and I r e a l l y wanted a boy. When I found out I was having a boy, I cried tears of joy! After I found out I was having a boy, I couldn't wait to start putting together the nursery.
We quickly turned one of our upstairs bedrooms into the nursery.
I knew I wanted to do a room for him that could easily transition into a toddler / little boy's room. I didn't want to do one of those fancy and expensive baby rooms or spend a bunch of money on infant decorations that he would only grow out of in a short amount of time. I love art and diy projects and wanted to put some of my personal touches on everything.
My husband and I love sports, so we decided on a baseball themed room. Our team is the Cardinals and we incorporated in our cardinals memorabilia.
The room was a medium blue color before I painted over it. Even though he is a boy and the blue would have fit, I wanted a bright and cheerful room for him. I decided on a cream color for the walls and white furniture.
This was an older brown dresser and I repainted it white and changed out the knobs to little baseball knobs. I didn't want a typical little changing table. I wanted a large changing table that he could use as a dresser for a long time. I love the way it turned out.
How cute are his first little pairs of shoes!?
My husband picked out and put up this baseball decal. We are waiting on a rocking chair we picked out online to go here . For now, his little jungle swing is there.
For his toy box- I painted a wooden crate and personalized it with wooden letters from Michael's craft store .
I painted a baseball stitch on the wall and a "P" for "Phillip".
She loves his baseball rug. I know the two of them will get along great! :)
I am pretty happy with how everything turned out. I hope he loves it.
I am almost 30 weeks pregnant now and am relieved we have everything done.
It won't be long now until he arrives! (01.04.15)
