I’m now 22 weeks with this little baby. Which we found out some time ago is a little lady. Lucky girl she is being born into a wardrobe that most adults would covet. Speaking from experience, being the youngest of three girls has it’s perks.
Since I have everything I could possibly need for a little girl, most of which is pink, new things for this baby are going to be things that I like right now. I need to find time to clear out our tiny guestroom to turn it into a tiny nursery. I’m going neutral, sweet and simple with this one. A natural wood IKEA crib, super soft over sized lambskin rug from Costco, an indulgent glider for me, the most adorable animal photography I’ve ever seen and a few fun and functional trinkets.
I could decorate and redecorate kids rooms over and over if I had the time.
I read this great article online about how baby massages are all the rage and can relax and calm a baby, so of course we had to try it for our girls.
Hahahaha. Just kidding! My sisters gave me a massage for my birthday, so my friend Tova at Atlanta Mobile Massage came over to give me a massage and I just thought a baby massage would be so cute, because isn’t everything with babies cute! We actually do give our babies mini massages with baby lotion every bath night but they still hate it and scream the whole time.
So I printed the free download, found some cardboard for the top, painted it red, found a piece if wood to use for the base and some wire to hold the mobile. And after three months of planning and finding just the right materials for this project here is what I made.
No good. Its not tall enough. The wire is not stiff enough to hold the weight of the paper mobile and being a new mom of twins I no longer have the time to go searching home depot for just the right metal wire.
So I improvised….
And they love it! They just stare and stare. One of these days I’ll color some red on the little squares. But it does the job for now. So even though the project didn’t turn out as planned, we got something that works for us. Seams to be an ongoing theme this year in our house.
