Homemade Baby Mobile

So it doesn't twirl on its own or make fun noises like a fancy storebought one, but I couldn't love the whimsical feel of my baby girl's mobile - and now perhaps someday she'll actually notice it as well:)

Remember what it looks like from my last post?

A very simple design - I searched the dollar store to find the top piece...can you guess??? Its a fruit holder turned upside down! Perfect:)  Then I used my fancy new cricket machine and cut out all different sizes and colors of circles of cardstock.  To attach them I stole some fishing line from the hubby and glued the paper around the fishing line. Attach it at the top and voila!

You have yourself a cute mobile for baby to stare at:) Easy as that!

A little Nursery Reveal

So, yes, I'm still here and alive:)  My dear baby ran into trouble gaining weight since I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which can effect your milk supply - therefore the girl has to take breastmilk and formula to get enough each feeding...Thankfully I have the best baby and she could care less what is going in her mouth, long as its food!  But they had me doing all kinds of crazy pumping and herbs and drugs to try to fix the problem...but that's a story for another day!

TODAYYY, I am finally going to show you the final pictures of her little nursery.  You have seen tidbits of the theme but here's it all put together.  Sorry I don't have a magical camera or much skill but you get the gist:)

Take a look:

And there you have sweet little girl's room...and now she is awake and crying so off I go but I'll leave you with a picture of how she is looking these days:)

All gussied up for her baptism day:
