Setting up the nursery is one of the fun things you get to do with pregnancy. In fact, in the first month of finding out I was pregnant, I started looking for nursery inspiration on Pinterest right away. We hadn’t yet closed on our house until my birthday recently in April, so we didn’t actually get to start on the nursery until after we moved in. But, we managed to get it done and could not be happier with the end result!
When picking out the theme, we knew that we wanted the color palette to be neutral with no gender specific color tones in the room, because I personally get tired of color really quickly. We also knew, or I knew at least, that I wanted it to be a “Sheep” theme, but this was actually really hard to pull off when we found out that there weren’t many sheep stuff out in the stores, and did we really want a room full of sheep? Not quite. So, we ended up going for a Dreamland theme.
I also went back and forth on the furniture finish; going from all white to finally settling on espresso. We thought that the espresso would be more fitting for our little boy; a strong & masculine color. Anyways, the first item we bought for his nursery was a tee-pee from Pottery Barn Baby and R bought a little lamb rocker from Amazon for our little Mushi. I think all in all, it took us 2 weekends to complete our baby’s nursery. We are so beyond blessed because 80% of the items in this nursery were all gifts from our generous family & friends. This baby has brought us so much luck!

What do you guys think of his nursery? I love it! The dreamcatchers and wooden frame give it a personal touch as these were all handmade gifts from my sister & best friend.
I have been spending a lot of time nesting in his nursery. Been wearing the boppy pillow, his blankets so he can smell me. Ive been reading to him a lot too. Can’t wait to have you in my arms Mushi.
