WOW! There is a nursery set up in my house!
When Mom and Dad came to North Carolina last weekend, we were extremely busy! We went to IKEA on Friday to pick up “a few things”. We left four hours and two cars full of stuff later! Mom and Dad offered to buy our crib and changing table for us, so that was very exciting! They also bought us our changing table pad and cover, crib mattress, and our throw rug. Shawn and I bought a shelf for over the changing table, sheets, and a light for the ceiling.
We came home on Friday evening and started to put everything together. Well, in all honesty, the boys started to put everything together while the girls made dinner and watched. They started with the crib and the light. The boys thought it would be an easy task, but with the fading daylight, hanging the light was a bit more difficult than we thought. But, we managed to finish both on Friday night. We decided to wait until Saturday to finish the rest of it.
After our ultrasound on Saturday, Mom, Dad and I went shopping while Shawn came home to finish putting together the nursery. By the time we came home, Shawn had the changing table and the shelf put together. Since Shawn and I don’t do well together when we try to hang things up, Mom decided to help Shawn hang the shelf. When they called me upstairs, everything was put together! We spent the next few minutes putting up some details, like the crib mattress, the changing pad cover, and some decorative pieces.
We still need to get our glider, but after that we’ll be finished with the furniture in the baby’s room! It is so hard to believe that we have a nursery set up in our house. For our baby. WOW.
