Over the weekend, Easton’s nursery mobile finally arrived! I decided to go with a blue and green star mobile that I first mentioned here. It’s the Rock the Night Star Mobile made by Little Dreamers, which I found on Etsy.
I originally wanted to DIY one, then I was going to order a kit to assemble it myself, then finally my mom offered to buy it fully assembled so that I wouldn’t have to attach 160 stars. SOLD! Thanks Nana.
Today we picked up a small command hook that flips down to hang it from. The metal hoop got a little bent in the shipping process and I want to iron the ribbon, but I was dying to see how it looked! So we hung it for a little bit today.
Here it is against the accent wall and with crib sans bumper now that Easton is sleeping in it at night. I think I’ll iron the ribbon with my hair straightener since it has worked so well for me in the past
Why yes, I even styled the crib with a baby. Actually I had to put him somewhere safe so I could take pictures and I didn’t really plan for him to be in them. But, he was such an excellent little product model that I couldn’t resist! It also just so happened that his onesie matched his room.
He only spent a few minutes with it, but he is already mesmerized by his new mobile. He was so excited that his legs were kicking out of control.
Does he approve? I think this face says it all.
I’m now one step closer to calling this nursery complete. I’ve been working on the gallery wall forever since I had to spray paint frames, order some pictures and make 2 art pieces. My goal was to finish everything by the time I go back to work, but I’m down to one week and I still have a frame that needs another coat of white paint. As much as I want to finish it, I also want to soak up my last week with Easton.
I’m going to miss spending my days with these guys.
