All of a sudden I felt that I really needed to work on the decoration of the new kids room... Oh wow, could that be nesting syndrome?
I must say I've never been much of the nesting kind when I was pregnant with Rosa: of course I wanted things to be taken care of, I loved doing all the necessary (and in particular unnecessary ;)) shopping and decoration, but being pregnant I still disliked cleaning and tidying up almost (almost? Why am I writing almost here? Of course I mean just) as much as I normally do.
So would it be better this time? After doing some bits of decorating in the kids room, I happily stepped back to take a few photos, only to notice that there was a victim of the organized look of the kids room: the now totally messy and unorganized hallway next to it! Ah well, I guess I still only have a very minimal version of the nesting syndrome ;).
My sister Olga crocheted the baby a new blanket, but when Rosa discovered it and found out that her sweet aunt made it, she immediately confiscated it and now she demands to sleep under it every night. Let's see if aunt Olga is kind & crazy enough to make us another one...
We bought the cloud lamp at IKEA. I already liked it for a long time, but so far we never had a good place to put it. Now I thought it would do well in this new kids room, that's much less girly than Rosa's previous room with the pink floral wallpaper. Somehow this time I felt like creating a room that's less gender specific (not that Rosa's room was that pink by the way!), maybe because the black wall already made the room less sweet & romantic. The sex of our new baby by the way isn't the reason: we've already been knowing for about two months that we're expecting another girl ;).
I got enthusiastic and made Rosa a little house drawing above her bed...
Soon the baby's bed will be standing next to Rosa's, but we first wanted to give her a bit of time to get used to the new room before we'd put the baby bed in.
