Starting the nursery

Just wanted to share that I am beginning to start the decorating of the nursery. I never did anything last time as I didn't know what would happen since everything went crazy from week 16. I knew there were so many risks & complications associated with Dalton that I was afraid to do a nursery. I thought if all turns out okay & he is going to be in the NICU for a while before we can bring him home then we would do the nursery. Of course that wasn't the case so I was glad in the end that we didn't do anything. My Mom & I had only bought a few outfits for him. However, since this time we are having a girl those will remain tucked away & will always be Dalton's.
This time since things are going so well, I decided that I am going to be positive and start on the nursery. I bought the paint today as DH is going to paint the walls tomorrow. He had to prep the room first and last weekend he put primer on the walls so now ready for the paint. We decided to go with a color called Spring Leaf which is a light green. It sure is green in the can! LOL!! Can't wait to see it on the walls!
Then Mom & I found this great consignment shop that is rather upscale. She bought a nice changing table for the nursery. And I got a new diaper bag that was much cheaper than I had seen it in the stores. Plus, I have already bought the crib bedding & mobile to match.
Still have 4 months to go but I don't want to wait until the last minute plus with having to have a c-section again, I won't feel like doing much when I do get home with her. And work will be picking up more and more so I will be too tired to do much more so I thought let's get started now and add to the nursery little by little.
I will try & take some pictures once the walls are painted & post them online.
Hope everyone is doing well & feeling well too!
Have a great weekend!
