Before my husband and I decided to find out the gender at our 20 week OBGYN appointment, I originally had planned to do the opposite and wait to find out the gender on the day the baby was born. I wanted to do it the “old school” way and have it be a surprise. I told myself that I’d keep the nursery neutral in theme anyway so knowing the gender didn’t matter. My husband, on the other hand, felt differently and wanted to know. He wanted to make more of a connection with our growing babe and as far as the nursery was concerned, he believed I’d regret not knowing and ultimately end up re-doing everything to be more gender specific.
NOW, this will be the only time. I repeat: THE ONLY TIME, I will ever say this but my husband was right. After we found out we were having a girl, I immediately changed around everything I had originally planned for neutral room and focused on getting things that are more girly. Am I disappointed I didn’t wait to find out the gender? Not at all. Sure it would have been so neat to find out on the day she arrived but when seeing how easy and fun it has been preparing, it was so worth finding out.
So with knowing a little girl was on the way for us, I wanted to create a nursery that would would be feminine, classy, rustic, and cozy. I wanted it to be a room that she would love to be in. A room that would inspire her to learn, imagine and grow. And while I don’t like to brag, I will say I did pat myself on the back when everything was all said and done. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
