Five months

Old.

The NBC. This month. Crazy.

So I figured it was high time we finished his room. A big five-month-old deserves a cute room, no?

So one wall has his name in big wooden cutout letters, painted brown, with green and brownish-mustard-yellowish-but-in-a-cute-way stars around it. No picture, because then you'd know his name and my mom would get freaked out and stuff.

The other wall was very sad and boring, and begged to be painted with a cute children's book character.


The Giving Tree is one of my all-time favorite children's books.

My Grandma gave us this darling Peter Rabbit bookshelf to celebrate the NBC's birth. I'm not sure if the bear is going to stay on it. It's not quite wide enough for books - a plant maybe? I'm open to suggestions.

I love the smirk on his face, though. He's adorable, and he knows it.

My copies of the Peter Rabbit books are small and beautiful. I'd put them on that shelf. (My daughter visited Beatrix Potter's house in April. She brought me an apron.)

Did you paint that Giving Tree picture yourself? People and their gifts astonish me.

My younger kids' room is this color. It needs decorating, too and I was thinking of a storybook theme. DId you freehand the giving tree and boy?

I love decorating kids rooms. I still need to do my boys.

Did you do the mural free hand? Because I'm pretty impressed.

I used The Giving Tree for a church talk pnce and bawled almost the whole way through. I felt like an idiot. I LOVE the story. And your mural is awesome!

A story book theme. I LOVE it. LOVE it. I know what the next evolution of my children's rooms will be.
