Brrrr....it's cold outside, so we are spending a lot of time indoors. Steven is able to play by himself more now that he can grab and interact with his toys. He spent some time playing in his room this morning. Several of you have asked for pictures of it, so this is for you. The wait is finally over! Exciting, I know.
His room (and the above outfit) are all about bugs. It might seem like a strange choice, but if you know us very well, you know that we are not really into sports all that much. And in case you haven't noticed before, a large portion of baby boy things are sports related. When we were decorating his room, we really wanted something that reflected us but weren't sure how that translated into a baby's room. Charlton collected bugs when he was little and so when we saw this crib bedding set we thought it was the answer. Plus, it was different from everything else we had seen (and we like being different).
Charlton painted the blue and green
stripes, and very patiently stuck each wallpaper bug along the wall. His hard work paid off because those bugs were the first thing that Steven focused on. He first discovered them while laying on the changing table; by 8 weeks he was totally in love with the little guys and "talked" to them like they were old friends. He now talk to us instead of the bugs, but the changing table still remains one his favorite places to hang out. My mom says that she's never seen a baby so happy to be on his changing table!
