37 spools of ribbon and one happy camper

I finished the mobile in 2 days and I'm quite happy with it! Tuesday, Mary and the girls came over and helped me start it (Mary is the one I got the idea from). It was so good to see them and a fun little project...well for the first 2 hours or so! They had to get home and do homework and I had to run out on another "ribbon run". I swear I think I paid that store's power bill this month! I think I finished cutting and stringing around 10 and crashed for the night. Today I got the rest of the stuff to hang it and Lee just hung it for me. I originally was going to hang it above the bed where a traditional mobile goes but I kind of wanted to hang pictures above the bed plus I didn't want him to be able to pull on it when he gets older and can stand in the bed. With the ceiling painted I knew it would not be able to be moved once it was hung so I hung it in the corner where Henry can still see it.

Tomorrow I have another doctor's appointment and I started my 34th week today. I know I've said this a million times but this pregnancy has flown by!! I am going to miss it really. I've felt great and been blessed to have such a healthy and easy time ~lets hope the delivery goes the same way!! Since I had a doctor's appointment and so I could get ready for my tea/shower on Sunday I went ahead and took the day off. Lee decided he'd do the same so I'm excited to spend the day with the love of my life.


  1. What a great idea. That mobile is absolutely adorable! Great job creative Mama Katie!!! :)

  2. You are so lucky it has flown by! that is awesome. Great pictures too. xoxo

  3. Yes we were. That was my first time there. To see D. Johnson. I really like him too. John said he thought he saw you, but wasn't sure. Thats so funny!! I love the mobile. Ribbon is awesome!! How many weeks are you?
