a nest.

i'm busy making nests.
a get-ready-for-kindergarten one for lucas. 
think: robot lunch box + orange shoe laces
a big boy one for gavin.
think: toddler bed and lot's of his favorite color. 
when i made this little nest for charlie - i didn't know him yet.
didn't know his name.  or that he'd have a magic hint of red fox in his baby hair.
i collected treasures for him and made him a little baby space next to my bed. 

charlie grey: keeps growing.
we're going on ten months already, folks.
he's standing on his own.
nearly walking.
we've changed his bassinet to crib and moved it into the other room.
and he sleeps in it! 

and now i'm ready to make him a new space.
there is some rearranging to be done.
some de-junking of the junk room.
some walls to be painted - i'm thinking the color of linen. 
or oatmeal. thoughts?
i love building little boy nests. 
such a happy mama bird.


  1. I love everything about this! I would gladly live in Charlie's room, it's put together so thoughtfully. I'm sure the other "nests" you are building are lovely too :)

  2. I want to snuggle Charlie in that big green chair. xo.

  3. Oatmeal. The color of steel cut oats when you look in the can. Rust fox accents. Remember when we named Pearl? We were thinking about a nest logo. Then a very pregnant mama Robin flew near. You are a great nest maker Lin.
