Let me start this post by saying that i had NEVER had the oppurtunity to decorate a nursery before. When Emmy was born, we were 10 1/2 months into our marriage and just starting out. We were only able to buy a few onesies and pacifiers (thank goodness for generous family and friends). Not mention we lived in a tiny apartment and we didn’t want to paint and stick things on the walls. Then with Isaac, we moved 7 months into my pregnancy and not 1 month later our entire family was struck by the nastiest flu I’ve ever experienced and we spent the next 2.5 months of my pregnancy sick. We just never got around to it.
But with baby number 3 on the way, I felt the desire to nest more. I had chosen a Dr. Seuss theme because of my love of his stories and because it’s a good gender neutral room theme. And because it’s cute ;-). My dear friend and godmother-to-be of our soon-to-be expected son, threw me an AMAZING Dr. Seuss baby shower and I was able to take most of the decor she had there home with me to use in my nursery. I had also asked a good friend of our family who is also an interior designer (how lucky am I?) to help me put the room together. Then that same friend came to the shower and was inspired by the decor (like the trees incredibly craftily made by my dear friend and her sister) and theme and told me that she had a Green Eggs and Ham room for her daughter when her (now grown) daughter was 8.
Yesterday, my friend and her husband came by on possibly the hottest day of the year, locked us out of the room and worked for 5 hours straight. I am humbled by all of my friends’ generosity and am stunned, absolutely stunned by the result.
So sooo many people helped make this room possible. I actually had to buy very little and I’m absolutely thrilled with how it came out.
Emmy keeps telling me all about her new room and how beautiful it is. ❤
