I's Nursery


Thought I'd share one more bit of happiness - the corner of I's nursery. We're trying the crib when she first comes home (though we're borrowing a co-sleeper and expect that she'll be coziest there), but plan to move her to a toddler day bed soon (hence the long pillows). The embroidery ("baby" and "daughter" in many languages) was done by my sister and a friend of hers, and my mom made the quilt and the curtains. Dh's mom made a sweet little blanket and matching doll blanket that will be making the trip to Ethiopia along with the doll in pink (ds has named her Isadora, one of the names rejected by the Bloom family after the dramatic negative response of extended family) and a stuffed kitten, I.'s first present, bought by her brother.

I can't wait to hear more!

you know the nursery really is quite lovely- very easy on the eyes (soothing). It's amazing how far you guys have come since your #1.

You mean because the corner of her room isn't actually just a corner of mine?
