Throughout the majority of my pregnancy, we lived in a one bedroom apartment, so I never got to decorate a real nursery for Julian. We moved into a larger apartment a few days before Julian was born. He was with us in this apartment, but he never got to see his nursery. I decided to go ahead and decorate the nursery rather than to wait for our next child.
Of course, seeing his empty crib makes me a little sad, but I know I would feel even sadder if I hid these things away and pretended that he didn't exist. The new items for the nursery make me happy and the room gives us hope for the future. Our next baby will grow up knowing about his or her brave big brother. For now, though, this is Julian's room.
