Another house shelf

Paul made these house shelves for my last birthday that we hung up above my sewing desk. He could not decide between two different designs at first though and simply made one of each. I hate to admit that one of them has been sitting in the basement until now, just because I could not decide on where to hang it… 😐

But now I finally found the perfect spot! I have been keeping a few diapers, wipes and spare outfits beside my bed for our nightly adventures with the little monster, because using our normal changing table in the kids room would mean disrupting the big monster’s sleep. So Paul mounted it to the wall beside my bed today and I filled it with all the mentioned goodies – plus some midnight snacks for mommy… 😉

And doesn’t the shelf look so nice with our co-sleeper?! Thanks again, Paul!

And even more owls…

I almost feel like I should set up a production line for sleeping bags… 😛

Not that I was actually planning on making any more of them for a while, but after a number of the little monster’s nightly diaper explosions I just wanted to have another spare one. So there we go… some more owls, bunnies and raccoons – and little hedgehogs and mushrooms for the lining.

But I promise, my next project will be something completely different!

Our balcony bed

I’m so excited that the co-sleeper that we already used with the big monster is finally back in use!

As these balcony style co-sleepers don’t seem to be very common here, my wonderful husband Paul just built one for us. He made the dimensions to fit the little mattress that I had bought, then attached two brackets that hook onto our bed frame. I for my part made some fitted sheets and tadah, the little bed was complete! 🙂

I really enjoy being on one level with the little monster, especially for nighttime feedings. And I really like the oval holes that Paul added as handles. They also came in handy to attach the little bunting that I just added this time around to make the bed look a little more inviting. And of course the little monster also got his own little music bear! 🙂

Now we just need to work on our sleeping rhythm. But last night he already made me the wonderful gift of sleeping straight through from 9 pm to 4 am! So let’s hope he repeats that tonight… Good night!
