We decided on a minimalist (well, my take on minimalism -- it's a work in progress) twinkle twinkle little star themed nursery. Grays, yellows, gold -- and some glitter. (Ethan and I decided collectively that his sister deserved some glitter.)
Carmen's closet has some built-in shelving which has been awesome and spares me having to put in a dresser as we did with Ethan. To the right is our little cloth diapering set up which I'm eager to use once my petite preemie stops being so, well, petite.
I hate headbands and bows, but I am a little bit obsessed with turbans and headwraps. Girl can pull it off like her mama sure can't, I have to say.
This box is closed for the sake of her privacy, but is usually open and contains photographs of Carmen with her birth mom and siblings. It also has some letters they've written her for when she is older and hospital trinkets -- bracelets, copy of her footprints, etc.

Her beautiful mobile is from Lovefelt Mobiles. Gisele, mama extraordinaire and maker of all these beautiful mobiles, may be the most kind, helpful and patient maker in the universe.
My little sister painted some small canvases for Ethan's nursery before he was born. We had Ethan carry on the tradition and create some artwork for his sister's nursery. Allegedly these are an abstract version of aliens and the cosmos. We'll go with that.
This changing table belonged to Ethan, but the hamper had broken in storage. I fell in love with this patterned hamper from Target and so all became right in the world again.
