DIY Crib Rail Covers

Posted by KK on Sunday, 12 February, 2012

Before I brag about this cool little project I have to give credit to this gal who I stole the idea from…

If you are a mom whose baby is morphing into a woodchuck and you’d rather your convertible crib that *should* last many years not be ruined by your woodchuck here is an excellent idea I found on someone’s blog! (Note: I didn’t want to buy 2 expensive fabric crib rail covers nor did I want to put some chemical ridden adhesive silicone cover on it that I may or may not be able to remove one day). I spent $5 on 1 yard of this fleece fabric (was 50% off at JoAnn’s) and it was enough for both the twins’ cribs and I spent less than 30 minutes making both of them. Yay! I even caught a pic of my little male woodchuck in action! (My female woodchuck isn’t pulling up just yet but I know it’s only a matter of days before she begins ‘chuckin’ away)..


And simply because this little female woodchuck is THE most gorgeous little gal on the planet I shall include one of her, too…

Happy Birthday to our darling twins, Blu Belle and Everest! I can’t believe they are 1 year old already!

It has been a year of appointments…165 to be exact! I’ve been feeling sad about how fast this day was approaching and decided to look back through my date book to try and figure out how this happened. Between the numerous early pediatrician weight checks and ongoing well checkups, visits with DCS case managers, home health nurses, hospital social workers, appointments with their ENT, neurologist, neuro surgeon, craniofacial specialist, physiatry, cardiologist, multiple Children’s Hospital lab tests, opthomologist, health department, Synegis Clinic, and meetings with Tennessee Early Intervention Services and Birth-to-Three developmental classes with 71 out of the 165 being a combination of physical, occupational and speech therapy (that is 71 hours of therapy!)….it is no wonder I feel like the entire last year has been an absolute blur.

But I have no regrets! Our twins are doing fabulous and are HEALTHY and so very happy! Although we haven’t even known them for a full year, I feel like I have loved them all my life. So thankful to God for choosing me to be their mama!
