I've never been a fan of traditional mobiles, but I know infants are stimulated by movement and bright colors. I have an affinity for design projects, so I came up with an idea to bridge the gap and decided to suspend paper lanterns and tulle pom-poms over Gray's crib. My husband and I executed this undertaking as a team, though I was more project leader than worker bee since I was eight months pregnant. We used fishing line and sturdy hooks to hang everything and reinforced it to ensure nothing would tumble into the crib. The result: A fun, festive design that's colorful enough to capture our daughter's attention!
