I kind of changed my mind.
It really, really wasn't my fault. I promise.
See, the thing was that right as we were getting ready to make some final decisions on the nursery, Joann fabrics came out with a Where the Wild Things Are line of fabrics.
And...uh...it was pretty much my favorite book as a kid. And, Nate and I are book nerds.
And all the names we've been throwing around have some sort of literary significance.
We actually pretty much planned on if Wookie was a boy, we were going to name him Max.
Oh, by the way?
(And yes, we are super geeked about it!)
So, while I've been swearing left and right that Wookie is a girl, I had a week or two where I was kind of hoping for a boy because I planned this really awesome, rustic boy room for Where the Wild Things Are.
But here we are, rocking an innie instead of an outie, so I had a mild panic attack because all the fabric was blue based.
THEN. I was visiting my family this weekend, and they had GREEN fabric.
Then my brain exploded in eyelet and lace and yellows and greens and sear suckers and chenille and I might have almost cried in the fabric aisle planning this quilt with my mom.
And now, may I present, a rough representation of a baby girl Wild Thing Room.
This room may also have been partly spawned by the awesome crown light at Shades of Light that I'm hoarding pennies for. It is so very Max. (Even though we have a Girl cookin in the oven)
This room is going to be a kind of abstract version of Wild Things. If you pinterest Wild Things nurseries you are attacked by all these bad ass murals and monsters and stuff and honestly- it's a small room. I want a little more light and airy, a little less, this tiny room became a jungle kind of thing.
We finished putting up the first coat of primer in the nursery this weekend (only took us a week to get that bead board covered...) and we'll start trying to get stuff put together in a timely fashion. We are OFFICIALLY 20 weeks today and I'm already feeling huge and unbalanced. The sooner I'm done painting that ceiling, the better!
Did anyone else get fun news this weekend?
