We've picked out a nursery theme. Actually, I picked it out and my husband agreed to it. Birds. I've always loved birds. Still do. But this won't be a yikes-look-at-all-those-birds type of theme. Just a few accents. Art, mostly. I found these bird pictures on Etsy, made by American artists. We framed them this weekend. And eventually we'll hang them. Baby steps, you guys.
The other day, while reading a new-mom blog, I realized we had no books to read to the wee-one when she arrives. I know we could basically read her cooking recipes or the NY Times while she's really little but I wanted something visually stimulating. Books that she can eventually get her hands on. Books with big shapes, bright colors and lots of contrast. And I love the ones we found. They will be perfect.
Here's to birds! And books! And babies arriving on their due date! Or even a few days before.
