Motherhood after Infertility and Parenting a child with ASD

We finished the nursery!


35 weeks 3 days. 32 days to go.

I am so excited that we finished the nursery this weekend!! I wanted it complete before little man gets here, even if he wont use it for a little while. Just something about having it completed. This room sat empty since the moment we moved into this house in September 2012. I knew it was slated to be a nursery and I refused to do anything with the room. It stayed stark empty. No paint on the walls, no furniture in the room and I even cringed when I put a few things in that closet. That was my baby’s room, I just knew it. 

When we finally got pregnant I couldn’t bare walking into the room. That was my baby’s room and I felt as if I did anything with it I would be jinxing everything. After the first trimester I felt a little better and started planning colors, where furniture would go and envisioning how it would all look. When it came time to paint I got serious cold feet… I had picked some bright colors for the walls to make it a total kids room and I just couldn’t do it when the time came. What if something happened? How would I make this room painted a beautiful fun shade of green into anything OTHER than a nursery? E and I went back and forth on it but I wouldn’t budge. We went with a nice beige color that could be coordinated with any type of room. I still don’t regret this decision. It allowed me to feel completely in control about the situation. 

After that, things just started coming together, slowly but surly and we finished yesterday by putting up the curtains. I love it all and the pictures don’t really do it justice. I can’t wait to show our son his room when he comes home in a few weeks!
