Have you started planning your nursery yet?  Just wondering if anyone is planning anything really neat for their nursery or if you have it finished already.  I really need to get going on mine, I'm 27 weeks and haven't started.  I am doing lavender for the color and hopefully a big white tree decal or DH had talked about painting a tree himself.  DH is actually pretty artistic so I'm interested to see what he'd come up with.  Post pics or let us know what your plans are for the nursery!

we're doing kind of a traditional look, since our new house was built in 1920.  nothing terribly baby-ish, so he'll be able to grow into his room as he gets bigger.

we bought a dark wood crib and some cute bedding (pic below).  at my shower, each guest brought a hand-decorated letter for the nursery, so we'll be putting those up as well (another pic attached).  we've got a great little library started, thanks to a book shower from the ladies in my book club.  we plan to have simple little ledge bookshelves on a wall, starting way down low so the boy will be able to reach them on his own.

The baby will be in our room since we don't have that big of a space, but his bedding is monkey themed and so is his bouncer and swing. We also have some monkey themed clothing! I'll more than likely stay home after I have the baby (although, I may finish out the year March-May with my students after maternity leave, but it depends of if DH is willing to stay home during that time). I have a lot of books in my classroom that I have bought like whole sets of Cliford, Curious George, Winnie the Pooh, etc. that will now be his.
