I am quite thrilled with how our second nursery turned out. I still love Vijay’s nursery, and he is a huge fan of his room, and I appreciate the things I have learned from watching him interact with his space. I have found that for our family, less is more, even when it comes to babies and toddlers.
There are not many toys in Vijay’s room- only his very favorites- and other than his crib, bookshelf, dresser and rocking chair, there really isn’t much else. This seems to create a calming, clutter free environment- which I think helps promote good sleep. The one thing we do have plenty of…books! He loves to read now, and I love introducing him to new books, so we don’t skimp on that department.
When it came to putting together this nursery, I kept it incredibly simple, and tried to use things we already had on hand. I love the result- it feels incredibly light and airy, simple yet beautiful. I hope our little man will love it as much as we do.
Vijay has been so curious about the changes in the room- he wants to get into the crib, and he is constantly peeking in, pointing to the crib and inquiring, “Baby?” Oh what a surprise awaits him…! Anyway, I would love to know what you think of our new space!
