I think I have finished my mourning phase of realizing I won't have a little boy. I know my husband is still bummed about not having a boy, but I think we both have come to the realization that two girls will be fun. Plus there is always the chance to adopt later if we would like a son. Honestly, part of me is sad I would never get to use the name we chose which is silly I suppose, but it is how I feel. I am excited now to have another girl. Hannah is really sweet with babies, and I hope it continues with her sister. A name has been chosen and slowly I am trying to put a nursery together. Right now it looks like the contents of Hannah's baby days have exploded all over the room, but I still have a few months to get it organized. The biggest argument lately has been the amount of pink in the room. I am not a fan of a ton of pink for a girl. I have always thought it was more fun to use to primary or bold colors, but my husband wants this room pink. We can't paint since we are renting so that does help some, but man it was almost World War III to choose the colors for her letters. I wanted something a bit different, and he wanted pink. Just pink. I compromised a bit and agreed to two shades of pink since Hannah's letters are two shades of purple. Luckily he is letting me use the accent color of green to go with the pink so I don't feel like I am walking into Pepto Bismol. It is crazy how wrapped up in our disagreement we can get, and it doesn't really matter what the room looks like. I just wish I were a crafty person so I could make some fun decorations myself.
