Ooo I love that nursery Coco! Good find...MrsT, that'd look really lovely.
What a hard decision to make moving over East. DH's whole fam is over there...we really wish they would visit us more (his brothers and wives). They have only visited us once in 7 years and that was our wedding. His parents come more often though. Apparently today my SIL told me they are planning a trip next Sept but I am DEFINITELY not holding my breath because I can't tell you how many times they have said that and it never happens. It really breaks my heart because everytime they say it, I don't think they realise it gets our hopes up and then it's a complete let down We have visited them every year...so feel it's very one sided. Sorry just had to vent my frustrations!
I think there are non toxic paints but am not sure how much dearer they would be, paint is expensive as it is. When we move into the new house I will be able to figure our the colour scheme for the nursery, however not finding out the sex will make decorating a little more neutral I guess. I can always add the wall decals after bub is born anyway.
You're right about spreading the spending out Mrs T. That does make it seem less expensive. I guess it's like shopping for Xmas presents. If you start early, it doesn't seem so much...I never gave much thought to clothes, but that is really logical. You could end up with a big bubba and how do you know when you are going to conceive too vs the season bub will be born.
OMG today there was the cutest baby girl and she had little pink shoes on and I was oooing and aahhhing and saying to her mum that girls clothes are so cute and she was like, 'yes you can go crazy buying them all'...DH was looking at me like don't get carried away now
