Nest for the StellaB

One day out from moving back to the good ole US of A, and I figured maybe it was finally time to put some pictures of the Beaner’s nursery up. For posterity, you know.

It seems surreal that Stella is nearly one year old, and it breaks my heart to leave this place so soon. It wasn’t what we had planned, but it is what is happening.

So, one last look before we go.

Michael’s mom made the gown above her dresser for her going-home-from-the-hospital outfit.

The camel is from Egypt, and the puzzle from Ethiopia. Both gifts from my little sister who lives in Africa.

More paper magic with the chain of yellow flowers.

We bought this little wooden animals in Bangkok back when we thought StellaB was a he, not a she. My friend Cat made the “Jesus Loves Me” artwork.

I adore this rocking chair. (Michael isn’t as in love as I am, but he just doesn’t know what he’s missing out on.)

And that, friends, is StellaB’s room!
