Okay, so I'm not a real mom, but for 9 hours a day I have to pretend that I am. I was hired as a summer sitter for a sweet little 4-month-old named Wells. Since I am surrounded by spit-up and baby coos all day I thought I'd post some happy baby images this week. Prior to my research, I had no idea how beautiful some of these lucky little offspring's nurseries were. I am so inspired that I am close to ripping down Wells' wallpaper and re-doing his room. Haha, however, I'm not too sure Mrs. Grantham would be as pleased as I would be. I guess I'll just have to wait a few years.
In the meantime, babysitting has reminded me just how difficult a baby can be! Yes, they are also alot of fun.. but boy do they require patience. I have almost become numb to the sound of crying. Seriously, you could turn on Lady Ga Ga or a soundtrack of screams and I probably wouldn't know the difference. All I can say is.. thank God for the man who invented the baby swing.
I love these images. There are so many different ways you can go about decorating a baby's room. Some people choose to go the unisex route.. warm yellows & cool blues, funky critters and eclectic stripes. While others decorate by gender.. girly girl pinks & elegant ruffles and bright baby blues for the little boys.
Which is your favorite? Eclectic, modern, traditional, "cutesy", posh?
This is a sweet little color palette for a baby girl's room. The yellows are great because they are interchangeable for a boy's room as well. Love the elephant!
What happy colors! How could a baby cry in this sweet room?
I am in love with this adorable little onesie! You must check out winterwaterfactory.com.
Oh how I adore this room! I am such a fan of pink. And those little slippers are so wonderful. What do you think of the Harper sign? That would be so simple to make - love it.

I love the pink girl pattern. You can get the print in all kinds of things at dwellstudio.com. There is an adorable diaper bag, onesie & wallpaper.
You must check out shak-shuka.com. They have the best baby decor. Isn't the little critter uptop the cutest thing? I also love the little rain cloud. Such a cute idea!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
