The One with the Nursery's Comin' Along

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Today we were very productive as far as getting ready for little Fox's debut. We still have quite a list of things that need to be accomplished before he comes, but I feel like we took a big dent of the "to do" list. For instance, we assembled the stroller and installed the car seat. Check check! I wasn't thrilled with the configuration of the furniture in the nursery, so I took the liberty of moving it around while Chris was at the church building fulfilling his (I mean, our) calling (we're the ward building cleaning coordinators and every Saturday morning Chris meets a few families at the church, gives them the keys and list of things to do, then peaces out). Here's how it looks right now (the colors are off cuz the lighting is bad cuz it's getting dark):
That table? Gotta go. I will be doing my scrapbooking on the main kitchen table now. So unless I can find someone who wants it, it's going out on the front yard with a "for free" sign tomorrow.

One of the biggest issues about this room is it doesn't have a closet. So today we fashioned this piece of furniture into a custom closet by adding two rods at the top. I ended up taking the lower rod out.
Now I need to get some baskets for all his pants and I think the bottom row will be full of books.
My Grandma Cathie always has a pile of stuff to give me when we go to Utah. This time I noticed she was giving away several rugs and I snatched this one right up:
It's perfect!
So. Now what?
Still waiting on the cushions for the glider and ottoman.
Still have to make my frame collage on the empty wall - but I've made progress spray painting a few more frames.
Still have to take off the bed skirt from the crib cuz it just looks awkward at this point, but it'll go back once we lower the crib.
Still have to wash all his clothes and bedding (that's what you're supposed to do right??).
Still have to return the mini rugs I got from Target and Urban Outfitters cuz I like the big rug better.
Still have to wipe down all the Bernstein Bear books my mom brought me from home.
Still have lots and lots of little things to diapers! And wipes!

Not related, but still worth mentioning, Chris was saying we should consider getting rid of the rabbit, chinchilla, and finch to lessen our load. I said hecks no! How can we get rid of this little creature?!? He's the cutest little bunny wunny on the face of the earth!
I hope I hope I hope we can find the time, energy, and patience to keep a house full of pets with a new baby!!
