It is Like a Walk in the Park

Oh man the week I have had.  For the past 4 weeks my children have been taking turns getting a really high fever for about 3 days with no other symptoms and then getting better.  It has been super fun and this week it was my 4 year olds turn.  At least he was nice enough to wait until after we did family pictures on Tuesday (I haven't seen how they turned out yet, so cross your fingers that we got at least one good one).

So Monday I took the kids to the pool (something I never would have thought I could do before I actually did it.)
Tuesday we had family pictures (which seemed to take all day to get ready for them), Plus I made Em a new dress and a tshirt shrug (but more on that later).
Wednesday my 4 year old got a fever.
Thursday he was still sick, and I finally got my hands on the book for book club, read it, and went to book club.
With all that going on I am happy to say that I have (in my spare moments) been working on some of the finishing touches in my baby's room.

Ok so there are still a few pieces of art that I need to create and I would like to get a couple of those LACK floating shelves from Ikea in the empty corner by the crib.  And I am toying with the idea of painting a duck and a duck and a goose on the wall under the window like they are walking out from behind the rocking chair.  Wow so maybe I am not as done as I thought, but I have gotten so much done the past few days that I just had to share.
 I will be breaking down the different elements of the room over the next week.  SO if you want to know how or what I did stay tuned.  :)

Join us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up party!

  1. It must be a Laura thing! I love trees, the are so clever and cute. Adorable!!!! Can't wait to see what it looks like when you finish.

  2. Oh I love that room!! It looks so sweet for a baby.

  3. Great job! So very cheery! Thanks for sharing ... I've posted a link.

  4. I used to paint chilren's rooms for a living so I wanted to say "well done"! When I saw the circles, the first thing I thought was that you could print some of your own family photos on the computer with photo paper. Get a circle cutter and then you could display circular family photos of varying sizes in the circles. Your baby's very own family tree. The photos would also look very great and graphic if printed in black and white format. Just a thought.
