It was hot and humid outside and Corey was cleaning out the shed while I sat on a towel under the shade of our mango tree, probably eating something and rubby my big, round belly. I would stop him every now and then to ask “what’s that?” and “let me see”. Right before he was about to send me in the house, he pulled out a dusty rubbermaid container filled with books from when I was little. I’ve always been a reader. My mother gave them back to me when I moved out but I never looked through them. I just stored them away for “later”. I opened the lid and the very first book on top was an old, stained, copy of Dumbo. I flipped through the pages and stopped at this one:
I covered his light switch in left over washi tape from my baby shower invitations. It adds a fun pop of color to the wall and took less than 15 minutes to do. Quick and easy, just how I like it.
Besides the ribbon and felt bunting that runs along the ceiling of the back wall, this stepping stool is one of my favorite parts of his room. I bought the wood stool and animals from Joanns, (Corey) spray painted it white, and I did the polka dots and bunting by hand. For his name I traced around stickers, peeled them up and filled it in.
This cat stuffed animal is never far from Cooper’s side and we’ve appropriately dubbed him Mr. Kitty (creative, I know). They nap together every afternoon and sleep together every night. I’d say it’s pretty serious.
