Tomorrow morning my daughters and I leave for a week in Upstate New York to visit my parents, brother and sister. (Yes, I'm the nut who leaves 80 degree South Florida to go to 30 degree Upstate New York for spring break. *sigh*)
Saturday will be my sister's baby shower and I finished Baby Boy's quilt this weekend. I am **SOOO** happy with how it turned out!
Here are some close-ups of those little monkeys, who all match the decal on the wall of her nursery.
I also made a diaper stacker with a monkey on it (using this tutorial). The green matches the window valances and crib skirt I already made her (and also used for the leaves on her quilt). The polka dots are sprinkled in to all the different items I've made her. In hindsight, I wish I had made that monkey face a little bit smaller, but oh well!
I also made her a Boppy (nursing pillow) cover -- it's blue on the back -- and a small pillow to put on her glider. I remember how many hours I spent in my glider as a new mom, so a little lower back support will be nice for her as she rocks her new precious baby boy to sleep.
As a completely random side note.... it was VERY hard not to write Baby Boy's name as I wrote this post. My sister and her husband have picked a name but they're keeping it a secret (well, not from me, LOL). I think that's a really wise move, as my 2nd daughter's name changed during my pregnancy because everyone had an opinion. We needed a "J" name and my husband and I both loved Jaelyn / Jaylyn, but couldn't agree on the spelling (I liked it with an "e" and he liked it with a "y") so we changed it to "Jessica." It was the right move (she's definitely a "Jessie") but sooooo many people had very strong (and loud) opinions on Jaelyn.... I swore if I ever had another one (which I do NOT plan to do, thank you very much), the name would remain top secret until he/she was born and it was too late to argue :-).
