Now that we are finally getting a bit more settled in our new abode, I have begun to think about decorating. Sure, all our stuff is still in boxes, but hey, we only received everything just over a week ago and have had house guests for the last two weekends so, really, there hasn't been anytime to unpack. Anyway, back to the decorating. Because we know this place isn't our *forever* home I'm really only thinking of acquiring items that I would take with me to our forever home, things that speak to my overall aesthetic-sense, and the one room that I'm eager to make special is Indio's nursery.
Back in Brooklyn, he slept in his co-sleeper in our room and had a change table in the *other* room that really was a glorified closet. Now that he has his own space, I want to make it special. I didn't think I wanted to do traditional *boy blue* but I keep coming back to it. [E says blue is my go-to colour and that I need to branch out more.]
Blue or not, I knew that I didn't want a matchy-matchy nursery, but more along the lines of something *coordinated*, original, and fun.
My very close friend, Rebecca is a fantastic illustrator and I have always dreamed of asking her to draw something for Indio's room. I just didn't know what. Lucky for me, she has finally decided to showcase her work to the world on Etsy [seller: skilldoll] and I found the perfect piece! The drawing is of the sweetest blue bird gingerly holding an egg. It reminds me of my pregnancy with Indio, a time that was filled with both joy and anxiety.
I miss seeing Becky almost everyday, but now with this beautiful drawing up in Indy's room I will be reminded of her every time I change a poopy diaper.
