c's room



while waiting for naomi to arrive, i enjoyed putting things together to make her room special. it's still very much a work in progress, but i figure since she's not sleeping there yet, there's no rush. much of the furniture is coming from cora's room, and so we've made some changes and additions since completing her nursery.

we've started the transition from crib to bed--she naps there sometimes, but has a hard time staying put without the walls of the crib. the bed belonged to earl's grandparents, so it's been in this house forever. it's perfect for a little girl's room, i think. since we'll no longer need a crib skirt, i repurposed the fabric to make cornices. i still love that fabric so much, and it kind of ties everything together, colorwise.


i bought this dresser without knobs so that i could add some fun ones.


and here's what has been taking place during my little photo shoot. usually naomi sits in that seat while cora serves her cake, but she was napping.

a new addition to our house


and a new addition to our family.

since i keep the computer beside me during nursing sessions, i thought i might take advantage of the time to start documenting our days again. thanks, julie, for the encouragement. it's good to be back.
