I haven't started planning the nursery (since we haven't figured out if we're coming or going), though I can't seem to shake this piece from my brain. I particularly like the scale (it's humungo), and I'm kind of thinking of a space stripped down and airy, along these lines (minus those superfluous frames) with a wham bam shizam light fixure. Or mobile. Or sculpture.
Something with interesting texture.
Also, we're starting to think about names. We're pretty much set on Aston if it's a boy, which according to Andrew it's going to be or he's buying a shotgun and a chastity belt and enrolling her in Jiu Jitsu. I don't have any gender preference at this point, probably because I'm too nauseous to focus on anything outside of vomit prevention which I'm hoping and praying will subside someday soon? Like before the kid goes to kindergarten?
If it is a girl Andrew likes Elliot (we'd call her El), Evyn (we'd call her Ev), Charley Ashlyn, Alex, and Harlan.
I'm leaning toward Sea Monkey myself.
p.s. Can you recommend me a good running stroller (preferably one that fits from birth through toddlerhood)?
p.p.s. Are blackout curtains really essential?
