BOY was I wrong & Baby Room Inspiration......

As much as I would like to think my "mommy intuition" is always right.....BOY was I wrong this time....we are expecting to add one more to our family in early October and yesterday was the 20 week ultrasound. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I just knew it was a girl....and this isn't my first rodeo...I would know these things right???
So, when the ultrasound tech said very sweetly, "would you like to know the sex of the baby?" I smugly said "Sure..." (I just wanted her to confirm what I already knew of course)
"Well, there are his boy parts!" Wait a minute, "boy parts??"

I love how God always knows what we need...when we need it...and always with perfect timing. My 6 year old daughter, who had been not so secretly hoping for a sister, told me before she left for school yesterday, "You know I really do hope it's another brother...little boys sure are sweet to their sisters."
I kissed her sweet face and told her we would know soon enough and either way we were going to be so happy. So as shocked as I was that I wasn't right, and had been secretly hoping for her to have a sister too, I am amazed at how quickly my thoughts of all things girly turned to another little guy in our house with a smile just like his daddy's. I love him so much already and I know there will be lots more times that I will be wrong....but when it comes to this one, I am so happy to have been wrong!

I really had to change gears when it came to a room for this sweet baby.... I had been planning on birds, blooms and a pale pink shabby chic room. I don't think that plan will work anymore!

So here are a few things I found and quickly pinned to my inspiration board on Pinterest

I just fell in love with these fun colors


I still got a couple of birds in there too!

How cute is this wall art??

This was just a start...I'm going to have a lot of fun this summer making over our "TV room" to baby's room! I will be sure to share all the fun projects I come up with!


  1. Congrats! While I think little girls are more fun to dress, little boys rooms are way more fun to decorate! Love those colors to! I get a lot of my kids rooms inspirations from Land of Nod as fact, my little guy's room has a land of nod ebay of course. ;)

  2. Yay! I really got teary eyed...we havent even met in person and I am so overjoyed for you! Congrats and I cant wait to see a sweet baby boy smile either...

  3. Congratulations on your little man. :) When I had my 20 wk ultrasound with Noah, I was secretly hoping for a girl too...I'm an only child with 8 female cousins and I was afraid I wouldn't know what to do with a boy. I am so glad God knew better than I did; Noah is the sweetest gift I've ever received. There's nothing like the relationship between a little man and his mama! I love the bedding you found too!

  4. Congrats, boys are a ton of fun. I thought for each of mine that they were all girls and every time they would say oh there is his parts. You would think by the third one I would have figured it out.

    The room decor is fabulous, can't wait to see the finished product

  5. Congrats on the BOY! We are expecting our first boy in August and I am thinking along the same lines as you are for colors! Great minds I guess...

  6. awh how in the world did I miss this? Congrats! And I am going to go follow you in pintrest right now! :o)

  7. that wall art could also be made into a quilt :)


I love comments! I read each and every one of them...thank you for taking the time!
