Three Little Birds Mobile

I've been dreaming about making JJ a bird mobile for his "Three Little Birds" nursery for almost a year now. And yay! It's finally crossed off my bucket list.

It's just a striped cloud with three birds.  I also made a tree, a small sun and a heart, but decided not to string them up. I'm liking the simplicity of just the birds and the cloud.

Here's the crib with the cute new mobile, sans baby.

And here it is, even cuter still, with the cute baby thrown in.

It's too bad that I waited so long to make a mobile that said cute baby refuses -- just refuses -- to lay on his back and coo at it.

He'd rather sit.

And smile at me through his crib.

And just stare lovingly at me. I get a lot of lovingly stares these days. And let me tell you -- it feels GOOD.

So maybe he won't enjoy it as much as he would have had I done it months ago. Oh well! It still makes me really happy to see these happy birds above his crib. Oh maybe that's just the endorphins from all the loving stares.

PS. The bird pattern came from the bird mobile in the book One Yard Wonders. It was perfect! Although one of my birds looks slightly coo-coo, and not in a bird way. Like a crazy way. Maybe you can spot him! Anyway, that was my mistake, not the pattern's.
