Frugality

For a long time, probably even longer than I have been thinking about having an actual child, I have been thinking about decorating a baby nursery! I know, I'm kind of obsessed with interior design. I have seen so many creative ideas my friends have done for their little one's rooms, and I have so many ideas.

But, we are still poor medical students, living in a tiny apartment, so this little guy gets to sleep in a pack-n-play, possibly even in our large walk in closet. NOT exactly the starry-eyed dream of a nursery I had always imagined, but it will have to do for now. Max won't even care at all. I'm actually quite proud of myself for the self discipline I've had for not buying or making one single decoration, lamp or even quilt for baby boy! Here are some inspirational nurseries I have looked at before, maybe I can use some of these ideas for our next baby.

I have your quilt covered girly girl. I have been spoied in my house and in the next month will get the rude awakening of squishing into a tiny apartment. but like you said, baby wont remember this. so long as they get lots of love our boys wont remember our extreme sacrifice of our addiction to frills and frivolity. :) loves

linz i love all the ideas. i agree baby Max will not even remember where he slept or what his room looked like. i wouldn't have done anything if it wasn't for my saving for 2 years. i think your a rock star for not buying a thing. that is hard to master. i am excited for his arrival, which i am sure doesn't amount to your excitement. he is coming to a fabulous home with great parents and lots of love and that's what matters!!
love ya linz!!!

I love the purple nursery and the green and black one. Sooo cute! Good for you for being so disciplined. :) Max will love whatever you do for him, big or small. I am so excited for you :)
