After finding out I was pregnant for the first time, one of my very favourite experiences was planning out my future baby’s nursery. Our century-old house needed work in almost every room, but as soon as we knew we had a baby on the way, the small bedroom that would be the baby’s nursery became the top priority.
Unlike most women today, I don’t believe in learning the gender of the baby before it’s born. There are very few real surprises in life and one of the best and most treasured is that moment after the pain of childbirth when a woman finally discovers whether she has a son or a daughter. I’ve always loved surprises and there was no way I was going to ruin this one for myself!
Of course, that made planning the nursery furnishings and buying clothing a little more difficult, but when a good friend gave me an adorable green Winnie the Pooh-themed sleeper, I had my inspiration. The nursery was completed with green and yellow colours with Winnie the Pooh décor. Boy or girl, I knew my little one would feel right at home in this room!
