The Nursery

Almost 4.5 months after being born, I finally feel like we have his room all set up. Most of the furniture has been in place for a month or more, since he moved in to the room, but I've been meaning to do something to decorate the walls a bit but had a hard time figuring out how, seeing as at least one of them is made of stone and so impenetrable. Then the other day I found these removable wall decals of farm animals, and they seemed pretty perfect. Especially since putting them up, and taking them back down when the time comes, were/will be a cinch.

Luckily D was in an exceptionally good mood yesterday morning, and played happily while I put up the stickers and then took some photos:

Please ignore the clutter on the table... I've been setting aside clothes to pack for him for our trip.

The map on the wall is a map of Switzerland, which Zach put up when this room was still the office/tv/other room, and he insisted we keep it up for D. I guess it's never too early for some geography lessons.

The cat pictures are from a Cats in the Sun calendar from a year or 2 ago. I've been meaning to frame the pictures and put them up somewhere... and it never really happened. Then I figured I could just tack them onto the wall here. D seems to like looking at them. =)

    What a nice light, bright room. Do you have drapes or shades on the windows? If not maybe that might be what is keeping Donovan awake? Sometimes babies like it to be really dark.

  3. Jackie-
    There's these built-in electric shutters that are on the outside of the windows and come down to cover the light partway, and all the way if all the way closed. I close them partway for naps, and all the way for bedtime, so it does get darker in there. Unfortunately there's no real easy way to put up drapes or curtains.

  4. Wow, what a gorgeous room! D is one lucky little guy. Like Sara, I'd also love to hear more about the mattress on the floor and the other Montessori principles. Also, I was wondering how you feel about your natural birth experience several months out now? I am thinking of going that route next time (not that that will be any time soon)!

    Ha! That should give you some blog fodder, no?

  5. Marcy,

    The room looks quite cute. I love the farm animals, they are very whimsical. Also, the light in the room is fantastic for a nursery.

  6. I like it! The sticker things are perfect :)

    btw - I did immediately check that website to see if I could send you the "ice cream" but they don't ship frozen stuff overseas :(
