The crib is in the house!

On Friday we received the call that our crib was in!  We were unable to pick it up on Saturday, so this afternoon in the sleet and rain, we drove to Baby Depot in Kitchener and picked it up.  Unfortunately the box did not fit into the back of our SUV… so, out of the box it came.  We had also bought the side rails to transform the crib into a double bed, and a crib mattress, so it was pretty full.  When we got it home, we got busy putting it together.  Now it sits in the nursery, awaiting a crib skirt, a quilt (both of which I’m going to get a start on right away), and of course, Alex!  I will take pictures once I get the bedding ready. 

The last few weeks have seemed so surreal – things happening so fast and all, but getting the crib somehow makes it seem more real.  Now we have a bed for Alex to come home to.  How many more weeks to go??? 

P.S. Belinda and Brenda –  you were so right – the crib is just beautiful!

  1. Yay!! I am glad that you finally got Alex’s crib! It does feel a lot more real when you put the crib up. Crossing my fingers for a speedy visa!

  2. Congrats! It’s exciting how “real” it all starts to become as the house becomes more baby-fied, isn’t it? I found that the wait seemed easier when I could walk by our son’s room and see it starting to get ready for his homecoming. Alex will be in your arms before you know it!

  3. I’m so glad you love the crib!! We love ours, even though Adam doesn’t love falling asleep in anything but our arms. At least my biceps are getting bigger! (:
