Two major additions to the nursery this weekend!
My dad somehow scored a really great rocking chair from a friend – for free! I had no idea what it looked like and saw it for the first time at Easter (where it was waiting for us at my parents’ place for us to take it home). I’m so thrilled with it, I’m putting it in the nursery and we’re putting the one Mr Content ordered for me in the family room. I tossed an ikea pillow onto it for comfort and have tucked it into the corner of the nursery by the window.
And here’s the big one – THE CRIB IS UP!!! I can hardly believe it. It still isn’t sinking in that there’s a wee one joining us in less than three months but it’s really happening! We’re thrilled with the crib, and it was relatively easy to put together (thank goodness!). It has three different heights for the mattress, converts to a toddler bed and eventually to a regular bed – the front and back turn into a head board and base board. This was a gift from my mother-in-law (Thank you Alice!) and we know it will be much loved for many years to come. No bedding yet, I’ve put it on the registry so I will post further updates as it all comes together. Also I’m still playing with the layout of the furniture in the room, and am holding off on hanging anything on the walls until the furniture is figured out. Stay tuned for the evolution.
