I know there are a few of you who don't follow every amazing project I lovingly hand-craft and post to the Interweb. Hell, I'm pretty sure I have close family that only pop in here from time to time to make sure I am still alive...
So, I'm sure some of you might have missed this gem of an update from my other amazing web project 40 Weeks To Fatherhood.
Boom! Nerd vomit all over this Baby's Room.
The Librarian and I decided that while we are going to love our daughter we are not going inundate her with pink and princesses and other gender-specific decoration. Instead, as two educated (read: nerdy) individuals, we thought that Space and Space Travel was a much more suitable theme for our future little scientist/astronaut/engineer.
Sure, this might seem like a very science-oriented theme choice, but what other science has inspired more literature, art, poetry and introspection than outer-space?
And so with the AstroMonkey sheets in hand, we set out to design and create a whole solar system right in Elliott's room.
I designed the planet using Illustrator and had our printshop at work print them out on vinyl wall cling paper. We are now on the hunt for a TARDIS, Enterprise and X-Wings to fill in some of the holes.
The Librarian, designed and hand-painted the letters over the crib. She then painted each with a star and added some glitter before applying a clear glossy coat to make the whole thing shine. It's like each letter has its own galaxy.
The whole room is putting a definite reality to my wife's pregnancy. It is almost here. And, starting today all our Baby-Doc appointments are now weekly... One month until the big day.
Of course, Indiana is excited...
Yes, dog, we can see Uranus...
