We had a great day today! Emily brought Big Will and Dana to the house around noon. We went right upstairs to Gage's room and Dana got right down to business setting up the bedding she had made for Gage. Emily and I exchanged babies and plopped down on the floor to watch her work. (Dana and Emily both swore she preferred it that way!)
It was so strange to hold Will. I'm used to Gage and his floppiness. Will is solid and firm. He sat right up on my knee with his back and head held completely straight. He looked around, watched Dana work, and smiled almost the entire time. He hasn't rolled over yet, so we put him down on his tummy and placed a bear just out of reach to tempt him. No luck. And when he got frustrated, I picked him right up for a quick cuddle. I'm a softie!
Gage's room looks amazing now. Having his bedding and curtains in place has really inspired me to hang things up and work to get Nanny's chair recovered in coordinating fabric. And I know Gage's room won't be complete without a bookcase.
Here's a close-up shot of the paisley fabric that's inside the box pleat on the bedskirt. This paisley fabric also appears in the box pleat and a strip of welting on the valences.
