These are exciting days. Since this boy is taking his sweet little time, I've gotten to do everything I wanted to do...twice! That includes hand-crafting a mobile of woodland creatures, rolling and re-rolling every last swaddling blanket and fluffing all my beautiful cloth diapers. But before any of that started, I was painting every crevice of this room and closet, from the baseboards to the ceiling fan.
I snapped some shots of his room for the ol' blog because I hear that after he is born, poop will explode into every corner of my house, I will never sleep, the sun will no longer rise, and there will be no time to eat an everything bagel with cream cheese, much less update a blog. So here's to posterity.
|Everything had to be painted...|
|Walls done, furniture still having an identity crisis|
|Dust scraping crappy laminate off the top of a sweet yard sale find|
|Unearthed was this lovely wormy pine. One of the first pics of me visibly pregnant.|
|Found a bunch of great knobs at Anthro in the clearance bin|
|The beginnings of a mobile: a hoop covered in wool|
|and felt balls|
|Lindsay made all these tiny woodland animals by hand|
|and me and Dusty strung them up|
|The boy better stare at this for hours|
|Clean sheets ready for Mom!|
|Had to find a spot to keep the buttercream drawers because they house a billion onesies!|
