notes from the nursery: blabla birdie mobile

Happy Day! Megan’s back after a few months of getting to know her new baby. She’ll be sharing her new-mom learnings with us. Welcome back!

Indeed, I’m living in baby babble land these days. My four-month-old and I entertain ourselves by taking “tours” of the house, making faces at each other in the mirror, and partaking in other very serious intellectual pursuits. Let me tell you how grateful I am for the few purchases that can keep my little girl occupied for more than a few minutes (ah, shower!). Now when those purchases also happen to be adorable, they get major points. This crafty-chic knit birdie mobile from Blabla has been one of my greatest investments. I just spin it and my chickadee is mesmerized (I have to keep twirling it every five, but believe me, that five goes a long way). I’ve also spotted Blabla’s vibrant kid coin purses and sweaters at gifts stores around the Twin Cities, but there’s so much more on their website — the veggie rattle set would be the cutest gift for someone’s soon-to-be. Shelterrific readers, give me some “blabla” on your baby obsessions. -– Megan K.

Cupcake boutique is fabulous! Thanks for the tip.


A friend gave my daughter (then about 2 months old) the Muffin doll from the Burger Bunch collection by Friends with You, and it prompted her first laugh ever. Now 9 months old, she still thinks it’s funny!

[…] think I’m developing a love hate relationship with bird themed home accessories. Good: baby mobiles. Bone china figurines. Debatable: Ostrich table. Bad? these bird feet from Show. Normally I adore […]

Do you have a CUPCAKE mobile for a baby crib?
