This is the little changing area that we set up when I was pregnant with Seraphina. I’m considering moving it and wanted to have some pictures of it as is, for her baby book. Steve made the changing table when I was pregnant with Mairi Rose. We left it unfinished and as she got older it was used as a bookshelf and general storage in various places around the house. We decided to spruce it up a bit for our new baby with a coat of paint leftover from our bathroom project and some fabric drawers. I vividly remembered how crazy making it was to try to keep everything from dissolving into utter chaos when just stacked on the shelves.
We splurged on the diaper pail as well. Some people treat themselves to things like luxury cars. Us? We go in for the fancy diaper pails. This one was pricey- you know, for a diaper pail! But I have to say that I’ve been cloth diapering babies for the better part of 15 years now and this is by far the best system I’ve ever used.
The mobile in process…there were supposed to be more bunnies and flowers and leaves and things twined in with the grapevine wreath and maybe some birds or bees or butterflies? But the truth is I haven’t added anything to it in a very long time. I think the only way it’s ever going to get finished is if I just start calling it finished.
And really that’s about it. Simple and sweet, just the way I like things. A basket of diapers and a little wooden bowl with odds and ends; a toy for entertainment, some healing balm, baby nail clippers, that kind of thing, rounds everything out. Lately she’s been excitedly talking to the little picture of herself, so cute!
