The room is nearly, officially, almost done. Done enough for pictures at least :)
The furniture is all re-used from Maggie’s room- the crib and both dressers. We weren’t able to fit a glider in her room at our old house, so that’s a new purchase- SO EXCITED to have one this time! We didn’t really need one in our old house- basically 1-floor living, so I would just take her to the couch for nighttime feedings. But now the bedrooms are upstairs and heck if I’m dragging a baby down a flight of steps at 3am! So after she’s out of the bassinet in our room, this will be lovely.
I just love the bedding. It wasn’t my first choice (original plan was sold out EVERYWHERE!) but I’m so happy with it. It’s girly without screaming PINK! LOOK! PINK! and it’s not cartoon-y either. Perfect. We just have to rig that turtle music toy up on the top rail like we did for Maggie, and we’re good to go.
(And yes, I use bumper pads. SOMEONE CALL CYS! QUICK!)
Lots of stinky diapers will be changed here.
Big props to Dan for putting the closet system in all by himself! While I was off getting a massage! What a guy!
A ridiculous problem: our kids’ bedrooms are HUUUUGE. Now that Maggie is older, it’s a good thing- lots of room for toys and books. But for a baby? What the heck do I PUT in the room? That wooden shelf thing across from the dresser is completely empty! It’s weird because we had the opposite problem when Maggie was a baby. SUPER TINY ROOM. It feels so wonderfully open now.
Just a few last things to do in the room: a rug, a lamp, and some wall decor. Oh- and some letters for her name above her crib after she’s born.
So! Now what? I’m thinking NAP.
