    IKEA "Ekorre" Hanging Seat / Swing

    This was given to Nadia as a gift. Maria has limited space in her apartment, but this was mounted on the ceiling near the wall, but it still has the ability to swing. And while it is only about 6-10 inches (15-25 cm) from the floor, Nadia absolutely loves to sit in there. When she sits in there, the sides enclose around her, giving her a dark, quiet space. She becomes so calm when she is in there. It is amazing.



    I have to make an edit here... You will notice the little mess that Nadia made She will spin around and pick up things within arm's reach while in the swing. It is a smaller path of destruction that usual. haha

    Tony and Maria,
    That's so cute! She really looks comfy in there! It must feel like being rocked in the cradle when they were small. I do wish those had been invented when Daniel was younger. Mind you I'm not sure we could have got it in the ceiling where we used to live. It was such hard concrete we couldn't drill any holes in it!
    Love the bows. Very gifted!
    Lots of love and good wishes

    That chair swing looks awesome. I can easily see how it would have a calming effect on our kids. Thank for sharing.
