We finally had to stretch H's bassinet into the bigger crib size. R and K worked on it together a few days ago. I made them wait until I'd snapped a few pictures to remember the "baby nook" by. It is so fascinatingly bitter-sweet how fast they grow. By-the-by I'm pretty proud about how we were able to convert the study/guest room into a sweet space for our baby girl. More on that another time (hopefully after finding art for the walls and making pillows, but we'll see how long that takes;-)).
In other news: finally found the perfect spot for this pillow-frame(?) thingy I insisted on buying at Goodwill two years ago. It's floated about the apartment much to R's dismay, but finally he sees the amazingness I always saw in it.(In his defense it is hard to see the potential in something when it sits awkwardly hunched in this corner or that for years). He put it up here for me when I finished the hallway and suddenly this obscure small wall I wouldn't have thought twice about is one of my favorite things in the house. Its a nice visual reminder of what a little bit of quirkiness can do.
Happy Halloween all!
