Baby room decorating!

So, my mom had a brilliant idea for decorating the baby’s room. We haven’t worried too much about “decorating” so far — just about getting the necessary furniture, and storage, and safety features. But mom was inspired by this cute little thing Tyla gave us at our shower:

which we’d hung on the door to the room. So she suggested that we fill one of the blank walls with this:

That’s all the finished baby knits I’ve done so far (and the pants from Dani!), hung on a little “clothesline”. I think it’s unbearably cute, personally — and it means I can display the items a little longer than the 5 minutes they’re likely to actually spend on the baby. I think we’ll have to add another line, though — I’ve got several things very near completion, and if baby holds off until after the weekend, I should be able to show them to you by Monday.

What a fantastic idea! And it looks great! I can’t wait to see the rest — hope the baby holds off over the weekend. :)

What a wonderful idea for showing off your beautiful baby clothes :) yeah grandma :) Sort of like a little fashion show. You’ve made so many beautiful things for him (sweaters and matching hats and booties and socks). I’m sure he’ll look darling in them teamed up with the cute little jeans Dani made for him. I can’t wait to see the real live fashion show with the little guy wearing them.

I hope you’re having a really wonderful, relaxing weekend..kinda dull and rainy but made more joyous with your parents visiting and taking care of both you and Mark.

I’m so curious about what you’re going to name the little guy :)

Hugzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
