It’s a Boy…

25 Sep

Well, I promise not to make this blog just all about babies.  I mean, just because I am having one is no excuse to start going gaga over baby things 24/7, right?–at least not here.

But baby stuff is just so cute.

And this week, we found out we are going to have a boy!  I’m really excited about it.  I am excited for Jon, because I know he really wanted someone to watch sports with (let’s hope the kid likes sports!) and also, although I did not really care, I think I kind of wanted a boy too.

Now that we know what we are having, I can start really thinking about the baby’s room!  One of the funnest things!  I had already found some cute things but they were a little girly, like this rug:

Also this lamp in the hot pink:

I don’t know why I thought I was destined to have a girl!  There are so many girls in my family though and Jon has four sisters!

So I’m going to start with some new inspiration which I found on Design for Mankind’s lovely blog:

It’s by Sukie and available at the 1973 shop.  I think it would make a great poster, or lining for some shelves.

I also really like these trees and the furniture!

I’m not sure yet how to order, though…it comes from Holland.  But maybe they’ll ship.  Or I can use my handy painting skills.

Just more to think about…hopefully I will have a complete scheme to show you in the next few weeks!
