Our nursery furniture arrived on Sunday and we were so excited that we picked them up and assembled them that day! 😀 Well…I drove with S to pick them up and watched while he assembed them, lol!
So I thought I’d share now that we finally have something in our nursery beyond carpet and painted walls…yay!!
(The chair that S is building me will go over in the corner on the right…)
Can I tell you how SURREAL it felt to stand in front of the crib and realize that there will be an actual baby in there in 3-6 months?? I’m almost getting chills even thinking about it.
And now that I have a dresser, I am DYING to fill it up with clothes. 😉 I went shopping with a friend on Saturday and got some super cute things at a local consignment shop – 6 outfits for $25! Although it was funny…S loved the clothes but told me that he didn’t want his kids in secondhand clothing (unless it was from friends). I guess being the youngest of 7 traumatized him more than we realized. 😉 I told him okay for now, but that I’d ask him again in 6-9 months, once he realizes how quickly babies outgrow their clothes, lol!!
Next step is our curtains, which are currently in progress with S’s seamstress. We should have those back in 2-3 weeks, and the chair completed soon after. I am so excited to start pulling the room together…every time I walked by the room last night (which was often, since it’s on the way to the bathroom) I had to go in and look around. I can’t believe that there is actually a nursery in MY house!
