Oakley’s Nursery

When my husband and I found out we were having a boy, I instantly started thinking about little ideas I wanted for the nursery. We went back and forth and there were a ton of inspirations saved on my computer and a few that I had on my pinterest board. I didn’t really know what I wanted for a crib or the colours for the wall etc. It took me a long time to decide and well it took me 4 months to complete because I couldn’t make up my mind.. oops. Although in my defense we moved to a new house when I was 8 months pregnant so I wasnt really able to do the nursery for 20 weeks, i had just purchased all the items and had them stacking up in a room of my old house [I still called it Oakley’s room hehe] After showing my husband what all I wanted to do and he agreed I started purchasing all the big items like the crib, and changer etc. When we moved into our new house I was like in ‘nesting’ mode. We got new carpet for Oakley’s room and finally after a week and that was all done Tyler started painting the walls, putting up for decals, building all the furniture etc all the big stuff that my big bellied self couldn’t do. For those of you who don’t personally know me, don’t know I was a giant beast at the end of my pregnancy, I legit had insane swollen feet, felt like it was hard to move sleep eat anything… all I’ll say is I was measuring 44 weeks pregnant the day I delivered which was my due date..Anyways once my husband put all the big items together I began doing all the little things as well as washing all his clothes, blankets, bedding etc. Below ill make a list of all the items we have for the room and link them if I remember where I got them! Theres still a few more things to do like put up his mobile [now that he’s sleeping in his room] put some art on the wall that I have I just need to frame it and what not and I need to get some blackout blinds and im thinking orange curtains. Keeping in mind this is probably not a typical nursery as we wanted Oakley to grow into his room and not out of it. This is Oakley’s nursery debut 🙂
