It really hit me this weekend that I now have less than two weeks until we get to meet the newest Weiss addition. All of a sudden it seems like time is speeding up and any day, hour, minute or second this baby will be here. SCARY! I jumped into full on doing mode (despise the term “nesting”) and picked up some last minute things and placed some 2-day delivery orders online. I feel a little better now that I’m (slightly) more prepared…but at the end of the day, what’s gonna be is gonna be!
For starters, because we’re being surprised on the gender, I was going to figure out the sheet and bedskirt situation after the baby comes and just use a white crib sheet I have for the time being (let’s face it, the baby only sleeps on those quilted pads you tie on the crib anyway), but instead decided why not order two different sets of Serena & Lily bedding on Diapers.com, and whichever colorway I don’t use I’ll just return (gotta love Diapers).
I figured out which accessories not only will make the room look cute but will also be highly functional. This Jonathan Adler nightlight is my all time favorite. Colette has the giraffe version. It’s also one of my go-to baby gifts to give.
Decorative pillows are an inexpensive way to transform a room and add a bit of color. I have Serena & Lily’s Diamond Pillows on a couple of chairs in my house, and now the baby’s room will be no exception. Plum if it’s a girl and turquoise if it’s a boy.
Tomorrow’s to-do list includes choosing paint colors for the room. If you have any suggestions send them my way!
