I’m excited to share the Willow 5″ HD Touchscreen PTZ Video Baby Monitor with you today along with a little peek at the girl’s room! PLUS, there’s a giveaway for a Levana baby monitor at the bottom of the post!
I have been working hard on this room for the last few weeks! I mentioned a little bit about it on my instagram account with a few little details. I decided to give my older daughter a big project to work on with me since she’s been having such a hard time being a new big sister. She was SO excited for the new baby, her little sister, that I didn’t expect the behavior backlash that we’ve dealt with. It’s so hard watching her feel so displaced! I felt helpless for a while, although I knew it would pass, working on this room together has definitely helped it pass a little quicker. It’s fun to be able to plan the room together, picking out items on my phone while I nurse the baby, etc. Turning the focus back on her while I’m nursing or changing diapers has given her the boost she needed. Fingers crossed it keeps working!
This is going to be the girls’ room, I’m just showing you one side today! The nursery side! Although Mae still sleeps in our room at night, I’ve been transitioning her into her room for nap times. She sleeps so much better in her own bed versus the swing or rocker. And the Levana Willow Touchscreen monitor helps me feel better about having her in a shut room while she naps! Oh, I’m one of those clingy moms! Even during precious nap time!
But she needs sleep without me checking on her/waking her up every ten minutes. And that’s where the Willow monitor has really helped us! This monitor has a 5″ screen and super clear picture, which means I can see that she’s breathing and sleeping peacefully without going in the room. And I also love the lullabies it includes! That is one of my favorite things about this baby monitor. My babies love music while they sleep. It’s great to have it all in one device.
That peace of mind also means nap time for me! Nap time is really when I get work done. It’s hard for me to get things done while the baby is awake, she’s just so cute and I want to hold her! So when she finally sleeps for an hour or two, it’s go time for me. I throw a load of laundry in the wash, start the dishwasher, and then have some time for myself, which I usually spend crafting or sewing or maybe online shopping.
And I can check the monitor the whole time! Whenever I’m tempted to go in there and peek, I pick up the screen and oogle over her a bit. The camera allows you to pan, tilt and zoom, so I can get a good view and then get back to work. I can do so much more with this little device keeping me sane.
And here’s one project I got done during a nap time! This DIY floral monogram is one of my favorite parts of this room so far. It’s simple to make and easy to customize!
This is a great project for any nursery theme! Use different colored flowers to make your own look!
Step 1: Print out your letter of choice in your font of choice. I used the free font REVOLUTION in size 1000 pt.
Step 2: Cut the letter out and then trace it onto the foam board.
Step 3: Cut out additional strips of foam board 1.5″ tall.
Step 4: Glue the additional strips around the letter to create walls. This will be harder if you have a curved letter, so just use smaller pieces or bend the strips as you glue. This doesn’t have to be perfect since the flowers will cover the edges.
Step 5: Fill in the letter with floral foam. Glue the foam to the back of the letter.
Step 6: Cut up the flowers and stick them into the foam. Use hot glue to secure.
And that’s it! This bright happy letter will add a punch to your wall!
