I'm now happily embroiled in putting together the nursery, a little bit at a time. Our beloved handyman (we Zalkans can fix nothing ourselves) came over Wednesday while I was working at home and painted the walls for us. Today I put some shelves together. A few scattered pieces of art have begun to show up on shelves. And it's starting to look just a little bit like a home for our daughter! Very exciting.
Here are a few pics, mainly for family members who have been wanting to see the colors we chose:
Phoenix investigates the new crib. Not sure if you can make it out, but there are small purple elephants (and giraffes, and lions, and other things) on the crib quilt. Which is, of course, why we bought it. Brett chose this.
Some great wall art I bought - alphabet cards with botanical illustrations. There are 26 of them, and I'm going to use them around the room. In front of them, you can see the baby's versions of Monkey and Herschel - her own pint sized elephant-and-monkey menagerie to start life with. These things matter
Close up of the letter c - aren't these great?
I had a few others but I've temporarily misplaced them on Brett's Mac. Which I'm not supposed to be touching. But he's not home, so nyeah. :)
