One of the things that Nick insisted we get was some sort of growth chart. I told him we won't be able to use it for a little while, but he REALLY wanted one. I'm so glad we picked this super cute giraffe! (Find it for sale here.) You might also remember my DIY name art that I made a while ago from this post. We hung it over the crib and I love how simple it is!
Here is a better picture of the giraffe. It came with some grass to go under the giraffe but in order for the height measurements to be accurate, we couldn't use the grass.
I also hung up some of the decorations from the lovely shower my girlfriends threw for me! I think they look so cute in the room.

My sis got me this super cute artwork for my shower. (Sorry it's a little crooked in the matting.) We're going to go shopping together to pick out some frames and then I plan on hanging one on each side of the window! (Sorry about the mess in Carson's room...I have a balloon left over from my work shower and our Easter baskets in there!)

I also finally finished the frame collage over Carson's dresser! It took me forever to come up with a good design/layout! I also had trouble deciding what to put in the frames. The top left and bottom right are prints made by Anne Tavoletti. You can find them here on art.com. The rest of the prints are free printables I found on a wonderful blog called Sprik Space. The top middle frame has Coldplay lyrics and the others are just cute phrases/quotes. I plan to change out the free printables with pictures of Carson once we have some! :) Keep checking back for a DIY post on this frame collage!
Just for fun, here is my lovely husband testing out our infant carrier with poor Chip and Dixie. Dixie was a little too small, haha!
|Chip is NOT amused!|
|Dixie was so content even though she could barely see!|
