at the baby’s room.
You can see the cloud decals on the wall now- and his little shelf is getting full of toys and whatnot. We’re probably going to have to find a new place for books since I haven’t even bought the books I want to buy him yet and already we’re running out of room. we’re looking into other options for book-shelving, but in the meantime we’re in love with the monkey book-ends so they’ll stay on top of the shelving unit for now. Ever since I put the clouds up and got the rug in there, I like the room more and more. The quilt hanging over the crib also makes it seem more “homey” I think. I’m not a big ‘matchy-match’ person so I’m all about the character of this room. Who says jungle and farm animals can’t get along?!
This morning it’s been raining all morning and it’s been unusually quiet outside. We’ve still not turned on the A/C so the windows were open when I woke up today and I could hear the rain dripping onto the leaves and the roof outside of the window. It was incredibly peaceful and quiet. I keep holding onto those moments and kind of staring wistfully as I soak in the quiet, because I realize that pretty soon the quiet will be gone. I know that it will be replaced with a noise that starts out anxiety ridden and jarring, but will eventually ease into a joyous kind of song in the background. I’ve just become incredibly aware of how quiet I keep things when I”m by myself- no television, no radio, just the sounds of the house, maybe a fan and whatever sounds are outside the open windows.
