This weekend, we took a big first step and started working on Noah’s nursery. Shortly after I got pregnant, we decided to move the nursery into our other spare bedroom. First, the new nursery is bigger, so it will be nice for him to have more room. And, honestly, it felt a little strange to just clear out Hannah’s things and put Noah’s in the same space. Does that make sense?
Saturday morning I woke up and was ready to get to work. If you’ve ever been pregnant, you know that all of a sudden you feel like you HAVE to get the nursery ready. I know I won’t feel settled or prepared until he has a space of his own.
I was going pretty strong until about 1:00. Then, the sickness took me down. I felt like I was catching something on Thursday afternoon….sinus headache, tired, congested, but nothing too bad. I felt a little worse on Friday, but by Saturday afternoon, I was running a fever and was officially overtaken. I spent the rest of the day on the couch and all of Sunday sleeping, so operation nursery wasn’t very successful this weekend.
I did start to sort things into a few different piles (attic, donate, trash, and keep), so that’s definitely a start. We still have A LOT to do before the room is ready for a baby….clear everything out, replace a section of drywall, paint, move furniture and things from Hannah’s room, make a crib skirt, curtains, and other decorations, etc. Anyone know a nursery fairy?
I know the hardest part of getting Noah’s room ready will be having to go through Hannah’s nursery. Right now, it still looks exactly the same. I just haven’t been ready to do anything yet. We are going to reuse the crib, dresser, and glider though, so I know I have to face it soon. That’s definitely a post for another day though!
