Moving Natalie in with Nathan was something we'd planned to do before Naomi was born, but that was one of many things that did not go as expected. My parents helped move Natalie's stuff, including the name banner, into her new room, so that left the crib wall vacant in what became Naomi's room. I didn't have an exact plan for what to put there, but I had the materials: A friend gave me a cute fabric banner (Thanks, Sara!), which I wanted to make a little more girly, and I knew I wanted to use the name letters that were on the door to Naomi's room in the hospital. The other part of my plan was to enlist Monica's help. We all know she is so gifted in the crafting department!
Here is a pic of the banner in its original state. Monica took one look, and she was instantly inspired!
(Note that the letters show up better if you see it in person.)
