Walter Moves In

We brought Walter home from the hospital on September 6th, 2 days after his birth.  Amazingly, he took a look all around at his nursery, and I could tell he saw the bold patterns in the black and white bannerfish!  What a great feeling!  He was 4 days overdue, and actually holding his head up pretty well shortly after he was born.  When the hospital photographer put him on his belly for a snapshot, he lifted up onto his knees for several seconds.  I also think he can see colors and shapes well past a 15 inch distance.  In these pictures, he is one week and 3 days old, and loving his mural!  I ask him, "Where's your fishies?" and he looks right at the nearest bannerfish.  I'm patting myself on the back for a good call on the bold mural featuring black and white.  I will definitely suggest this to my clients in the future.


  1. I LOVE it!!! It is such a happy nursery. I decorated my kids' room in our old bungelow in an under-the-sea theme. I painted the top third sky and clouds and the rest of the slanty walls and knee walls water, with a sponge tecnique. I stamped fish and hand painted the plants. I also painted a merperson above each of their beds that looked like them. It was just so cute and they loved it!

  2. Wow, I would love to see pictures of that room! Thank you for checking out my blog.
