We never really had a "theme" to Baby's room, other than girl stuff hand-me-overs and hand-me-downs. This bothered many of our friends, but not us. We wanted to wait to see what Baby was into to give her some say in decor.
We've decided to put Runt and Baby in a bedroom together. It'll take a little moving around, but we are hopeful that it will work out. We've also decided it's time to consult Baby for ideas for a theme... and we've all agreed on female super heroes.
The Hater is a comic book nerd and couldn't be happier. I'm excited that it's empowering. Baby is picking up on our excitement but really doesn't get it yet.
The problem is that official super hero wall art is out of our budget range, so we're having to be creative. I'm super excited with what we've come up with so far:
Baby painted these by herself. I still lack sealing them - and I've not decided if I want to go over the letters with glow-in-the-dark paint or not. The part of me who lived with a theater major for several years in college keeps whispering, "Less is more!", but it's met with the part of me who thinks glow in the dark paint would make it awesome.
I have one more canvas, but haven't thought of what I want it to say. Plus I have a big piece of foam core that I plan on using to actually incorporate the super heroes.
This is pre-nesting. My parents will bring the crib and baby sundries in September. And I'm not in the mood to start washing Baby's things in the baby detergent for Runt yet. So here we are.
Another exciting weekend at home. There is no paint on the kitchen table, qualifying this as a great success. On the other hand we do have a little bit of glitter everywhere...
