I have been wanting to share these photos for awhile now, but had been holding off because I wanted Nico’s name to be a surprise until his arrival. Zack and I worked tirelessly on this nursery for a few weekends in a row to get those wall decals perfect and to make sure everything came together with the finishing touches. We purchased these dressers when we first moved to NYC, and we saved them and used them in the guest bedroom when we moved to Brooklyn. Rather than buy new dressers for the nursery, we figured these were the perfect color for the panda and monkey themed nursery we were planning. We have already spent many sleepless nights rocking Nico in the glider, and have spent many hours in this room for his diaper and wardrobe changes. He is currently sleeping in the bassinet in our room, but when he is older, we will eventually move him to his crib. We hope Nico will grow to love his nursery as much as we do!

Today is Zack’s first day back to work, and it’s my first day at home alone with my little man. It’s definitely a lot of work to be on your own, and I applaud all single parents for being strong enough to do this! I should probably be sleeping right now (sleep when the baby sleeps right?), but I wanted to take advantage of his little nap by getting out this blog post today.
We had a great weekend with my sister and her boyfriend in town as well as my in-laws. My sister cooked us up a phenomenal meal, and we spent the two days hanging out, taking a little walk around the neighborhood, and snuggling our little monkey. Nico is a lucky boy to have so much love and family around him, and I couldn’t ask for a better support system.
Hope you all have a great week!
