Did you know that there are like 3 bazillion different nursery themes/collections?  
And we probably looked at all of them. Even the ones specifically for girls...don't wanna discriminate or anything. :P

Here's what we finally chose. Moonbeam

It's very cute and I have so many ideas about decorating and painting and stuff. I need to run my ideas by William (boys always throw a kink in the plan, don't they?), but I was thinking about either painting the ceiling the darker blue color in the moonbeam design (and adding some stars and stuff) or painting the lower half of the walls the darker blue. We'll see.

Dad is building the baby room furniture. He's already built the baby bed (that will convert into a toddler/kid bed, and then into a full-size bed) and the changing table/dresser. He still plans to build an armoire. My dad is the coolest. ♥

What do y'all think of moonbeam? I really fell in love with it. Spencer should be comfy.

Very cute! Spencer will be a right little macho baby in his beautiful blue room! (When my cousin Kayla was little, my Aunt PJ would sing to her while she was dressing her, and she'd sing "I'm too sexy for my onesie! Too sexy for my onesie!" and I just had an image of you doing the same, but singing, "Macho macho man! Spencer's gonna be a macho man!") ...that came out weird, didn't it?

You know I'm gonna sing that now, right? I can't get the song out of my head now! LOL

I think it's absolutely adorable. The colors are so pretty, and the accessorizing options are pretty much limitless. I always said I wanted something just like that for my Chinese baby, whenever she gets here.

Very nice. Two thumbs way up!

THANKS! Yeah, I'm really excited about getting the room done. But I'll really need to wait until after the baby shower...OMG that's in just a few weeks!

I know! I'm just trying to figure out what I love the best. And yes, William will get input. ;)

Ohhh, no giant crickets.

Very cute. It's subtle, but calming. Classy.

Lol, I would actually like that color scheme in MY room.

Thanks! ♥

Yeah, that was sort of the original reason I liked this one so much. I LOVE THE COLORS.

that's cute. i would definitely do darker wall color. i think i saw a collection similar to that from jcpenneys or something and they had wrought iron baby furniture and dark walls and it was totally awesome.

my cousin is having twins, like, this week and they did the bee collection that was at baby's r us. and my best friend's brother is having a baby boy in the next two weeks and they did the frog theme, also from babys r us.

for kyleigh, we did classic pooh with white furniture.

babies. who knew they needed to be so coordinated? jeez.

when we were deciding on kyleigh's we bought the john lennon musical parade collection, which was nixed, but not by me. i loved it. it was so cute.

we gave it to our cousin who had a boy just before kyleigh was born, though. so somewhere it lives on, sort of.

Yeah, I looked at those. See, I'm a huge froggie freak. I LOVE THEM. But when I saw that one is person it was way too neony or something (neony is totally a word).

I'll bet the John Lennon musical parade collection was awesome.

Yeah, I still need to talk to William about the walls, but I'm all about the darker blue.

I'll bet wrought iron baby furniture looks awesome.

These babies are so much more coordinated than I've ever been.

kyleigh matches everyday. everyday!
and she's always wearing new things that are so cute and adorable.
and my room everything is mismatched and crazy. kyleigh has 40 crib sheets that are interchangable with the rest of the set. they all match. wtf.

babies = high maintenance.

Gorgeous! He is going to be the most loved baby ever. He has friends all over the world already and he hasn't even turned 0 yet!!!

I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on January 24th, 2007 02:48 am (UTC)
hehe! He's already the most loved baby ever, isn't he? With the most aunts and godmothers!

I can't wait to get it and take pictures so y'all can see it in the room!

It's adorable! And it will coordinate with any ducky merchandise that happens to float his way.

HOMG! Ducky merchandise!
