Nursery progress – Arrival & construction of the crib!

Last week was a super exciting baby-progress week for me. We ordered the crib and it arrived on our doorstep a few days later! We ordered it from this fantastic website called They’re based out of Wilkes-Barre, PA (about 2 hours away) and the shipping cost us less than the PA tax – we couldn’t believe it. Anyway, Friday night, Nick, Chris and I put the lovely little piece of furniture together and then ran into some trouble…That’s about when my brother showed up and offered up his opinion. Thank God I was able to get pictures AND video! This is priceless.

I love this crib. It’s so pretty. And new. And precious. And I can’t wait to have a little, itty, bitty baby to put in it.

Soooo excited to get the crib!

Nick reading the directions before starting to put it together. Good boy.

Construction starts.

Now, let’s get it upstairs. Mind you, it was MY idea to build the crib in the baby’s room, not downstairs in the dining room, like Nick insisted…

Hmm, maybe if we turn it the other way?

How bout upside down?

Nope, don’t think that’s going to work either, but let’s just keep trying anyway…

And now for the video. Part 1

Part 2.

The end result.

Yay! So cute!

I love getting baby stuff accomplished – it just keeps making it more and more real.
