Baby Boy Nursery Plans

May 2, 2016 at 5:18 AM 5 comments

Thank you so much for the comments and phone calls after Gene’s post.  It was so very healing to hear from you and I’m glad that the story of his life could touch so many.

Last week, Graham and I went and checked in on our baby boy with the 20 week ultrasound.  Thankfully, all is looking good with him.  So, I asked the Dr. if I could start working on the nursery and she said yes.  Dr’s orders!

The baby will be going into Grace’s room and Gracie will be moving in with Josie.

Most everything will remain the same – carpet, crib, glider, lighting, art.  I just want to add a few things that make it feel more boy.


When we found out we were having a boy, Graham came home so excited with a nursery theme: Sports!!  To which I laughed and said I just couldn’t do a chic sports nursery.  He tried to claim that it would be a fun challenge for me.  Nope.

I got to looking through schemes and we came up with a compromise.  A room in Golden State Warriors colors.  Doesn’t this room just scream Warriors to you?


I’d like to do Katie Ridder’s wallpaper – Beetlecat on three of the four walls and then Quadrille’s zig zag as Roman shades and a bit more boy bedding.  It got Graham’s approval.  Items have already started arriving and I like how the scheme is coming together…


Go Warriors!!

PS – Don’t feel sorry for Graham because in like ten short years, our boy will likely cover his room in sports posters and will absolutely live in those sports jerseys.  So really this is my five minutes of a “sports themed” room before it all goes very full on Steph Curry.

    Super wallpaper…there you go being so brilliant with blue again! But of course…IT’S A BOY! Hurrah! Great compromise…both of you! As a small aside, I’m such a fan of the “Flying Blue Angels” (looks like a wall hanging of some sort in that one photo?). My father worked for Boeing and I spent my youth looking into the sky at airplanes…well, pretty much still do for that matter! Our favorite was at the Gold Cup hydroplane races on Lake Washington when the Blue Angels would swoop down in formation across the surface of the lake and then shoot skyward straight up, finally peeling off outward leaving colored trails behind…thrilling!
