We’re lucky enough to have plenty of hand-me-downs for this baby, and a car load of them are on their way here tomorrow. But one thing that we don’t have is a full sized crib – the one E’s Nana and Grandpa bought for her has been handed down to her cousins and is still being used, so we had been looking around for awhile for a new one. This one has been one of our favorites – it’s a newer line from a company that makes really beautiful, simple cribs with clean lines – and even better – clean materials and paints. We ordered it yesterday. It comes in a few colors, but for some reason the gray just seemed really lovely to us. We’re starting to get some ideas for the room based around this and are looking forward to some more inspiration from this little one when he / she arrives. The paper stock I ordered for the announcements is in, and as soon as I get this one last cookie order done tonight I can start in on some of these leisurely projects.
Speaking of he / she – we saw the little one again today and man, has that kid grown. The space around is shrinking and the knees are tucked up to the chin. It looks pretty uncomfortable in there. Everything is doing what it is supposed to be doing – good progress and good reports this week – it won’t be too much longer now. Pictures of me and the baby tomorrow.
