When I said that I had everything ready for the nursery, I didn't mean I actually have everything ready for the nursery. There are a couple of blank walls that need some fun artwork, and I know what I'm putting on the walls, but they can't be completed until after Miss Baby arrives (for photography purposes, I think she'll be much cuter in person than on her ultrasound photo).
One thing I could pick out ahead of time is her growth chart. Before Sydney was born, Aunt Andrea got her this super adorable growth chart at some baby boutique in Truckee, California. It's sturdy; it has "Today I am 3" (or whatever age they are) stickers as well as blank stickers that can be used for various occasions; it looks nice hanging on the wall.
I loved it so much, that I found the company that sells them online (eeBoo) and got a similar one for Julianne.
Even though I grew up having just one growth chart for all four of us kids, and I know some people have treasured memories of marking height on the walls/doorjam, I decided to go for an individual growth chart for each kiddo.
Now, I need to pick one out for Miss Baby, and I just can't make up my mind.
We've finally settled on a name for Baby, and that exhausted my decision making skills.
So, I'm putting it to a poll so you can help a mother out. Don't fail me now, people. (Click on images if you want to see them slightly larger.)
Option 1: Lilly Pad Pond
I like the frogs. After all, we have frogs here on the Family Farm.
Option 2: Sunflower
Sunflowers are fun and cheerful, and it does follow the theme of inches marked a plant (Sydney has a weed; Jules has a tree).
Option 3: Hot Pink Flower
I think this one must be new to eeBoo because I just saw it there today. It's also super cute, and follows the whole "mark the inches on a plant" idea. The fairies are the same, although the artwork style is different from the other girls' charts. Which is fine, but I'm just pointing it out.
Three choices, and I can't say that I'm leaning one way or the other. Okay, maybe I'm leaning a little less away from the Hot Pink Flower because the style of artwork is different, but that's not necessarily a deal breaker for me. It's still a darn cute growth chart.
There you go! Vote away!
(PS: The poll probably won't show up in your feed reader, so you'll have to click over to vote.)
