The countdown till baby 2 is officially ON so we have updated the nursery to accommodate for two babies.
Just days left on the baby 2 countdown, so it was time to adjust the nursery to accommodate two babies. We plan to be in a new house before this babe will need his own nursery. It was a better option to make G’s room more suitable for both of them. Baby 2 will be in a bassinet in our room for these first several months. When we make the move, each boy will get their own room.
First, I added a rug to the room. It was important for G to have plenty of places to play. Currently, we have a couple things for him to play in our room. Since the new baby will be sleeping in there a lot (hopefully) I wanted him to be able to play in his room more. This Lorena Canals was perfect for that. It’s machine washable, all natural (no VOC’s!) and handmade. I kept it neutral so it can grow with him or go in any space later.
Next, I switched up the changing table/dresser. Previously, I had a changing table that was open on the bottom with some baskets. That is now in the closet underneath the hanging clothes, with accessories and various items. This Carter’s by DaVinci Dresser was clean and simple, but provided more adequate storage. The top can also be a changing table. I saved the top drawers for each of the boys’ diapering needs. Then each boy has a side with their most worn clothing items for the easiest access.
We also added the first letter of baby 2’s name to the collage near the rocking chair. (I took it down for the picture, to keep it a secret!) Once he is here we will also change up the pictures in the frames to include both boys’ sweet faces. 🙂
Lastly, I found these closet dividers with months on them. I sized the closet from newborn- 2T so both of their clothes could be organized together.
I’m so excited to welcome a new precious little guy into our home, and for G to become a big brother! That doesn’t stop the mom guilt about him not getting the attention he needs, but it’s really helped having Trey home more with the long holiday this past weekend. We were able to really give him lots of QT and soak in the last days of being a family of 3!
P.S. G’s little outfit is from Moon & Beck. They are local out of Nashville, and it’s the softest fabric EVER. (Bamboo and Spandex mix.) A lot of their stuff is mix and match, and I stocked up for him and for the new babe.
