I change my mind a lot. I rearrange, redesign, re-plan. It's just who I am AND something that goes along with having a smaller house, I've decided. From the very start we planned on having Henry in our room until he transitioned out of the bassinet. The changing table would have stayed in, simply because there wasn't room for it anywhere else, but the plan was that the boys would be sharing rooms. The time came and I chickened out and decided that temporarily Henry would remain in my room and sleep in the pack and play.
But then came the four month sleep regression AND an ear infection, which meant Henry was getting very little sleep and I was getting very little sleep as a result. I started to panic about them waking each other up and how naps could possibly work, because Emmet barely naps as it is. I am VERY protective of my sleep and alone time. I need them in order to be a sane human being (and to be able to be creative - which I have SO been lacking time and energy for lately). So I changed my mind again. I had Dave move Henry's crib over into our room and I designed his little space to look and feel like his own mini nursery.
While I was pregnant with Henry I spent months gluing together felt to make these succulents. I think Dave thought I was crazy. I then took a piece of waxed cord and glued them all together to make this garland! I love how it turned out!

This is by far my favorite baby keepsake book I have found so far! It is well illustrated and has spaces for pictures and prompts for a few words. I made one for Emmet for pregnancy through year one that was mostly pictures, was gifted one that was more for written responses, and bought a toddler one. This one has the perfect balance of words and pictures, though and has spaces for birthdays through their 5th birthday! I also keep a box of their hospital bracelets, hospital hats and small keepsakes too.
I'm absolutely in love with this mobile that my friend Shannon of Lil' Peach E design made for Henry! It perfectly ties together the whole room and Henry loves to look at it! Message her on facebook and she'll make you one!
