Thatcher's Room

I finally finished the projects I've been working on for Thatcher's room! I crocheted his name and hung it on the wall over his crib, and I also made him a mobile of forest animals. They definitely look home-made, but I think they turned out pretty cute!

Thatcher loves the mobile -- he smiles and kicks his feet while he watches it -- and now he's cooing and 'HAH!'-ing at it, too :)

Here's a close-up of his name.  I wanted his name on the wall, but since it was going over the crib, I didn't want to buy heavy wooden letters that could fall on him. So I crocheted some -- I made them up as I went along, so they're not perfect.

I wrapped a wreath form in yarn for the ring. I liked these colors together.

I also made up these little mini animals -- they're all animals that are on his crib bedding.  Here's the bear.

The deer.

The owl.

The fox.

and the hedgehog.
Here's what T sees :)

 We still need to paint the walls (I'm such a procrastinator), and then I'm going to put some vinyl on the wall. But other than that, I think I'm almost done with T's room! (yeahhhh, he's almost 3 months old.  I'm slow)

I love the letters you did, and I like that they aren't all the same size.

hey CUTE!! And no worries about getting his nursery ready after he's 3 months. Remember ol' Rowan didn't have a bedroom until he was 9 months old in Vegas! We'll take our time with Baby Ta-Ta too.
You're so amazing!! Cute cute stuff.
