Navy, Gray, and Aqua Woodland Nursery Inspiration

It's crazy how real everything gets when the gender has been revealed, kicks can be felt, and a name has been chosen. It's refreshing that our little guy finally has an identity. Joe and I are loving this stage and cannot wait for the next couple of months to fly by. Before he makes his grand arrival, we need to kick things into high gear over at the fixer-upper.

I was finally able to make a legitimate determination on the nursery. Here's what we're thinking:

Be prepared to swoon! Please note that I don't want all of these exact items, most are just photos from the web for DIY inspiration and can be found on my nursery Pinterest board.

To Buy:
Wooden Mobile (I'm torn between the feathers and trees): The Red Bird Shop
Eddie Bauer Chair and a Half Rocker (be still my heart!): Target
Fillmore Crib: Pottery Barn Kids
Madame Aviary Throw Pillow: Land of Nod
Moose Head Hook: Zulily
Gray Surya Fallon Rug: Plush Rugs
Various Prints: Etsy
Basic white and gray sheet sets: Target
Kinderkram Woodland Friends Set: Blueberry Forest Toys

Stamped throw pillow
White dream catcher
Wood slice art
Clipboard gallery wall
Two-tone dresser & changing table
Rustic garland (either pinecones or felt leaves)
Chalkboard globe
Quilt and afghan

Navy walls: Behr Marquee Opera Glasses
White board and batten: Benjamin Moore White Dove
Window treatments: Ikea Marmorblad Curtains & Ikea Emmie Roll-up Blind
Hardwood flooring - Minwax Wood Finish in Dark Walnut
Wood accents of varying tones
White & Gray upholstery
Aqua and navy touches here and there

Tell me, what do you think? I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the color scheme and theme - it's not much of a traditional match but does it work? I'm hopeful this will be a room he'll be able to grow into rather than solely being a nursery.

Boy or Girl? Gender Reveal!

Yesterday was the day! And oh what a day it was! We've been counting down the moments for this ultrasound for what felt like way too long. 20 and a half weeks is painful... just sayin'.

The full anatomy scan was incredible and our little one wasn't shy about exposing the goods. I knew what I was seeing before the tech even had a chance to say it. Joe and I will be welcoming a little boy into our family!

As I've been saying for the past few weeks, I've been convinced we were having a girl. I was shocked to hear that I was wrong -- as were all of the old wives' tales (but the Chinese Gender Chart was right on point!) While my immediate reaction is not my proudest moment - I began tearing up right away - I could not be happier at this point.

We have a son! And a big son at that - already weighing in at 14 oz! That's nearly two weeks ahead of schedule. His heart was racing at over 170 bpm - bad momma! I drank a little too much juice to get him ready for showtime. He was pretty lax for the first half of the ultrasound but he started punching and kicking midway through - it was pretty stinkin cute.

I can't wait to snuggle this little guy in a few more months!

So mommas - we'll be starting our registry this coming weekend. Any suggestions and tips are welcome!
