FINISHED Nursery Room Box for my Sister

Here we have Nanny nursing the baby while her older siblings look on.  Over on the side of the room are her twin cousins enjoying a bottle of milk each.
Today I finished the room box for my sister's combine birthday and Christmas present.  I finally finished knitting the boy's dark green pullover and changing his flesh coloured legs with white shoes and socks to black stockings and brown boots this morning. His blue denim jeans were removed and replaced with fawn knickbockers. This room box celebrates her year  -  2013  - when the number of her grandchildren grew from two to five.  In May, her son and daughter-in-law had identical twin girls called Casey and Tessa and then in September, her daughter and son-in-law had a third child, another little girl called Madeline Grace.

In the room box, I have included the twins in their cots with a bottle each and in the centre of the room sitting comfortably in her rocking chair is the Nanny introducing little Madeline to her older siblings, Robert and Emilia (Millie).  The children have brought their favourite toys to show the baby, Millie has her Teddy bear while Robert rides his Hobby Horse and pulls his wooden train at the same time (whereas the real-life Robert is into Transformers and Angry Birds!) .

If you can see anything that I can add to this little homely scene, please leave a comment to let me know.
