Nora just moved from our room into her nursery. Eek! Now she feels so far away at night—until she wakes up and wants to eat and ends up back in our room.
This lovely name plaque, made by my uncle, arrived a few weeks after Nora's birth. You might recognize my uncle’s handy work from the numbers plaque he made for Cricket. We had pretty much abandoned the nursery the last few months but are now back tweaking some accents to transform it into Nora’s special place. Hanging this sweet little sign seemed like the perfect first step.
These photos not only demonstrate the sign's fine craftsmanship but also what happens when you place a foreign object on our floor to photograph it.
Above: The first shark circles, poking and prodding.
Below: The second shark arrives, with assistance, to begin her own investigation.
Below: Soon the sharks launch a coordinated attack, and you know you better remove the foreign object before they tear it to shreds.
Below: So up on the wall it goes—safe and sound and pretty.
