Yep, the nursery is complete, and so that must mean we are officially ready to go to Taiwan.
And just in case you are counting, like I am...it has been 3 weeks and 1 day since we heard about the first ruling. So I'm just saying... I am ready.
Below are some snapshots of just what Sammy will be able to call his very own room.
We are far from interior designers at my house - we like comfy and simple. And this is what we came up with. It really was a total group effort with all three of our ideas mingled together. Some of the items in it are from Simone's nursery and some are all new, just for Wei-Che.
Simone, Adam & I picked out the material for the window treatment and just went from there. I wanted sailboats, so we made some with the leftover material.
And it's hard to see the actual color of the room, but it is a real pale green, just a bit lighter in color than the changing table cover.
Adam sewed the window topper and I sewed the pillows. (please don't inspect too closely...)
And that interesting sailboat picture...Adam made that when he was in elementary school. The colors match perfectly so we had to include it!
I never thought I'd have a nursery with primary colors and sailboats, but here it is! And I really like it, and I hope my little guy does too.
Simone and I painted the letters for his name (below) and she donated her mobile to him. Starla and J gave us the other musical attachment, so he will have plenty to entertain him!
That lovely blanket on the crib was a gift from friends and that RedSox bear has been hanging around our house for ages...just waiting for the right little guy to come along.
And shoes. I love little baby shoes, they are so cute!
Simone keeps stacking the nesting boxes so her Di Di will know how to do it when he finally gets home. Often I'll come upstairs to find her playing quietly in here, sometimes just moving things around or folding the blankets. Maybe she gets that from me....
We still have a few (quite a few actually) things to finish up before we leave, but honestly I could be ready to get on a plane for my sweet baby tomorrow if it came down to it. So keep fingers crossed we hear some good news... and soon!
