New Nursery Additions
I’ve been working on a crochet star mobile for Boram and was having a difficult time deciding what colors to use. I ended up using a bright blue and a pale yellow. It matches the sunshine mobile I made already and the beautiful blanket my NCMC girls made for our little boy.
Not to shabby eh? It turned out nicely, I added a brown ribbon on top to hide the knot that I made to hang the stars. It won’t hang over the crib, more likely next to the crib instead. But it’ll still look nice in the room, I think. Plus it’s stars, I love stars…
So we ordered a crib from Ikea and it got delivered yesterday! They assembled it and we put it in our room for now (first few months till midnight feedings aren’t so frequent). I just love the color of it!
I couldn’t resist putting some things around it to make it feel more like a real baby “area”. I’m planning on hanging the sunshine mobile on the wall, above the crib. I also think I’ll be taking the framed pictures and putting them on the wall around the mobile. I hope it works out, even if it doesn’t… I can redo it once we move Boram into his own room!
What do you think?? Doesn’t it look great?
And today I had lunch with the fabulous, Kristin of Donuts to Dumplings. She is a fellow expat from NY who lives in Shanghai and we had the best time getting to know one another and eating delicious Cantonese food. It was fun to talk about our experiences here and how much we love Shanghai. So happy to meet you today girl!
Right when I got home, I saw a package was addressed to the hubs, Boram and I! It was from Elyse, Brad and their daughter Estella. They spoil us with so many things and while they were visiting in Hawaii, they sent us some aloha love for our baby. So sweet. Mahalo guys!!!!
I suppose now would be a good time to go organize our place a little. It looks a little like a tornado passed through because I was trying to rearrange stuff so that our home is ready for the baby. Ok, well… very SLOWLY, which is why it’s so messy! haha
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
