When we found out we were having a new addition to the family, we were immediately overjoyed. Couldn’t wait to find out what we were having and imagined how differently our life would be, for the better, with two little ones running around. Pretty quickly after that my mind was filled with home designer dilemnas because we needed to make a new room for this little one. Raul and I each have an office, mine in the loft with no doors, his with an actual door and all. Addison has her own room and then there is the guest room that houses the only other TV we own.
We already knew the guest room was the one that would get all the changes but it is a small room, 10′x10′, and already has a queen size bed. From my newborn baby days with Addy, the bed was a godsend. I could just go in there, all times of the night and nurse, watch TV and pass out. I think the bed will stay because downsizing will just be a disaster. I can quickly see both of us toppling out in the middle of the night, not cute. That leaves little space for more nursery furniture so I’m thinking we should focus on finding portable or compact options like a rolling crib on tall legs. Or a changing table/dresser on tall legs (a little something I learned from Nate Berkus).
I’m in my second trimester (19 weeks) so we need to figure this out and soon. We installed an IKEA cloud light already with a dimmer, just like Addy’s. Lord knows how much longer I’ll have the energy to design this little room.
