Gemma's Newborn Nursery Reveal

I hinted weeks ago that I was going to be sharing Gemma’s nursery, and I’m finally getting to it! The funniest part is that this is almost nothing of what it looks like now. These photos were taken at our maternity session when I was 37 weeks pregnant and thought I had everything perfectly laid out the way I wanted it by the time Gemma got home. Ha!

After Gemma came home, things quickly started getting moved around. Many of the daily things needed ended up out of the nursery and heading pretty quickly to our room, where Gemma slept for the first 5 months of her life. We not only had the extra changing table and bassinet in our room, but many of the baby outfits, diapers, little toys, and all the swaddles ended up in our tiny room with all of our stuff too. I will admit that i was quite a mess in there for a while.

I will have to do a 9 months later post as well, because even since moving Gemma into her own room, so many things have changed! I finally got her a diffuser all set up. She has sooo many toys that I try to present in a Montessori inspired manner. And I miss that stockpile of things in her closet. The wipes disappeared fast! We are down to only one box left in the closet, but we have also now switched to mostly using cloth wipes as well.

I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration from her adorable little starter room!

One thing that I have always looked forward to for during pregnancy was to be able to take maternity photos. I've always thought they were gorgeous and I couldn't wait to be the one in them caressing my baby bump. And of course, there was no way I was going to be able to do that without our fur babies as well!

Looking back on these, I can't believe I was actually so big! Everyone always told me I was tiny and I honestly didn't feel like I got that large of a belly! But as you will see, I was wrong! Though when I hold Gemma, I still can't believe that there was any way that she ever fit inside me.

Well, here they are! Along with a sneak peak of Gemma's Nursery!
