Baby, House, Life

Nora’s nursery

The bedroom next to ours stood empty for the longest time (and by “empty” I mean filled with random hiking gear and outdoor cushions), but this spring we finally had the motivation to spruce it up and get it ready for our little nugget.

We decided on a woodlandish theme, which means that Nora inherited the awesome bear beanbag JK got me for my birthday a couple of years ago and we finally got to use the little rug we couldn’t resist at IKEA.


The couch used to live in the office and is fairly ugly, but it turns into a bed, something that might come in handy in the future. The ladder shelf is from our old bedroom and will be replaced with something that’s less tempting to climb once a certain someone starts toddling around.


JK painted the walls (including a slightly darker accent wall) while I supervised from the couch, then JK put up vinyl decals while I supervised from the couch, and then JK hung the bird mobile while I supervised from the couch. Aaah, pregnancy. The only time in my life I was physically able to nap. *suppressing a yawn*


The picture frame above the changing table/dresser is going to be filled with photos of relatives back home, but I was supposed to print them the week Nora showed up…and somehow I haven’t even gotten around to buy ink for our printer yet. Christmas. Surely I’ll get it done over Christmas.

Here comes the Nora train! We found these train car letters at a toy store here in town and finalized her name right then and there. This will probably grow into an epic train set over the years.

Nora's first artwork

…and of course, Nora’s first piece of art – our friend painted this based on our baby announcement photo. I love, love, love it so much!

Nora’s aunt got her this AMAZING romper. It’s still a little too big, so for now it serves as decor…as will her collection of newborn sports supporter jerseys and onesies that she’s now grown out of (sniff sniff). Oh, and since babies produce an impressive amount of laundry, I found this vaguely Mukmukian laundry hamper for all those spit-up-on and blown-out-in teeny tiny pieces of clothing.

I can't WAIT 'til she fits into this! Vaguely Mukmukian laundry basket

    Love it! T has a Rilakkuma dress we found at Goodwill and it’s super cute. Would love to know (offline as needed) where you got the name letters for the train. I need to find one for M and think it’s too late to order from Etsy.
