Well if this isn't an embarrassingly late post, here's the nursery of my almost 21 month old little boy! Regardless of that, I am thrilled to show off his little love-injected space. Nurseries are always full of sentiment for us, little bits of love that I've accumulated through my life and that are so cool to repurpose for a nursery.
Let me show you around! That cuckoo clock was my parents'. They got it when they lived in Germany, where I was born. The tin, round photo is a picture of my parents that they had made in Turkey. The other items on the gallery wall are a map of Puerto Rico, song lyrics for Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing, a quote from Jim Eliot and a drawing that our nephew drew when he lived with us 7 years ago.
The hot air balloons were made by a friend for my shower and I love them. The frame was made by Gustavo from old slats off a bed that was my great aunt and uncles bed they gave me in college.
We made the nursery with a travel and mission minded theme. I fretted and cried putting it together as I whispered to my belly to never actually leave me in spite of what it looked like that is what I was suggesting to him.
That little leather jacket!
Everything has a story and I could go on and on. Thank you for taking a tour of the nursery with me! It was really such a blessing to create something for our sweet Nico!
