Little Bird


We started calling Elliot our "little bird" just few days after she was born. When she is hungry, she lets us know by opening her mouth, flapping her arms, and chirping like a, well, like a baby bird. It's very entertaining (to us, at least!). It's kind of funny now, because we had several things with birds on them for her before she was born.


Sweet little gown.


Pillow for the chair (look closely for the birds in the corners).


Okay, so I just bought this one. But I didn't think about it being a bird until I got home.


Bird hook holding a gown and hat that were mine when I was a baby.

More on the nursery (what we've done so far) coming this week, I promise!

What a beautiful baby! I love all of your finds and how well they fit her nickname. The pillow is great and reminds me a little of the DwellStudio Hedgerow bedding, where is it from? I'm really looking forward to seeing the whole nursery.
