Okay, so this is where it gets fun. Selecting a high chair and a bassinet for my registry was definitely cute, but those items are more perfunctory. A mobile is pure, unadulterated whimsy, floating down from the ceiling. Each one is cuter than the next. Some are more gender-specific than others, so I included all possibilities in my list because it’s important to be prepared. Here are my twelve favorites:
It also occurred to me that I needed to decide how to hang the mobile: using a mobile arm or a ceiling hook:
And then, in all of my online rambling, I was made aware that I could make my own mobile which, I have to say, sounds pretty darn tempting:
But ultimately, I went for a gender-neutral, ceiling-hook mounted, hanging bundle of precious, felted delight. Brett actually agreed with me on this one, which is nice, because I didn’t want to have to overrule him two weeks in a row.
