Baby: We're Beginning To Buy For You!

Weekends go by so quick! Sometimes it almost feels like I blink and it's Monday again..We spent our Saturday making plans for your nursery and browsing the Internet for inspiration. We spent a rather long time having fun browsing around our local Mothercare store, picking out your first ever cot bedding set, we decided on the 'Loved So Much' range. The neutral colours are what we really love about it, specifically the browns, greys and whites within it, we really feel that this style will fit with the vision that we have for your finished room.
We were lucky enough to find the last bumper pack in the sale, which saved us quite a bit compared to what we would have had to pay if we'd had to purchase all the items singularly - the only item we did have to purchase separately was a set of two cot sheets (which I love the pattern of) also from the Loved So Much range to match the bedding. We didn't purchase the quilt, as you wont wont need that until you are a year old.

Not only did we find your first ever bedding set.. we also found the most adorable baby record book for you! Finding the right book was just so important to me, it's something that is used to record the details of every single momentous occasion of your first year of life along with photographs.. it's something that you will hopefully keep for the rest of your life! I cannot wait to start filling it out!..The inside of this book is just so beautiful!

We spent a fair amount of time whilst at Mothercare having a play around with some of the prams on display and we discovered just how much needs to be considered when we go to purchase you one.. I felt just like an excitable child on Christmas morning learning about all the different things that individual prams are able to do. Jus pushing the prams around the store, and watching Daddy do the same got me excited! I learnt a lot, and came away thinking that perhaps my initial thoughts on wanting a 'travel system' perhaps wasn't for us after all... I suffer with back problems and found messing around with the car seat a bit much, but we shall see... we haven't ruled them out completely!

Heading over to Homebase we picked ourselves up some tester paint pots to test on your nursery walls. We're looking for a neutral colour, almost like a 'mushroom' shade. The top half of the wall in this picture is almost what we are looking for (though perhaps a shade lighter as it will be used for your whole room):

I think we'd then like to then perhas use white furniture for the cot, chest of drawers etc. 
To be completely honest.. it's a hard decision and it's even harder finding the exact colour for the wall then matching it with the carpet, and furniture.. as exciting as this nursery project is going to be it's also a little stressful ensuring everything matches and that we're making all the right decisions.

Saturday evening was very relaxing one... we watched '8 Out of 10 Cats Does Deal Or No Deal' on catch up and we consumed our ever-traditional Saturday pasta meal. Daddy built his Lego train and I spent the rest of the evening researching baby prams for you. Starting to buy for you is so exciting!
