Time has a funny habit of speeding up when you get older. But I never knew how it would fly by even faster once you have a baby - except during those 2 a.m. feedings, that is!
For those of you who didn't see the announcement on our Facebook, Baby Gypsy arrived four weeks ago in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve. I was fortunate to have a fairly quick labor and am still blessing the wonderful person who invented epidurals. Ain't nobody got time for the pain of contractions!
From the moment she arrived, we've been wrapped around her tiny fingers, and we cannot wait to continue exploring the world with her and see it through her eyes! Originally, we had thought to visit Germany in March and introduce her to all her relatives there while I was still on maternity leave. However, due in part to her vaccination schedule but primarily because Europe is still a mess with the "refugee" crisis (and I have no inclination to experience firsthand the type of attacks that occurred in Cologne on New Years Eve), we're postponing for later this year, most likely in September.
So since we can't take baby traveling abroad yet, we've decided to bring the traveling to her with a travel themed nursery!
These lovely canvases were selected and gifted by Baby Gypsy's godmother, who totally gets us because this is such an awesome gift! I love how we'll be able to use them for any future baby gypsies, too.
I am still working on a postcard mobile to suspend from the ceiling, and we will continue adding to Baby Gypsy's travel collection over the years. But this is a good start for our little traveler, and I'm so pleased with how it's turning out!
What other travel themed decorations or items would you suggest for Baby Gypsy's room?
