Nursery Update

Things are finally coming along in the nursery department. Thank goodness my sister-in-law called us Saturday night to tell us about a great deal at Target: Buy the crib, get the matching changing table for F-R-E-E! Yep. That’s right. The crib converts into a toddler bed, and full-size bed.
She’s a beauty in “Espresso”:
[The mattress is still at my parents’ house so I couldn’t fully set everything up yet]

[will hopefully get my baskets off my registry to go on the shelves]


Thank goodness my awesome in-laws were in town visiting for Labor Day to help us set it up. I’m so happy it all worked out 🙂

We also went ahead and set up the playard in our bedroom so Indy would get used to it. I thought he’d growl or bark at it, but he could care less. I guess that’s a good sign!
[L.O.V.E. this pattern! And works for a boy one day, too!]

AND….. our car seat/stroller arrived today (thanks to B’s aunt and uncle) WAHOO!! Silly me thought it would come already assembled (just folded up), but ha-ha… yeah right. I opened it up and it’s all.in.pieces. 


If you have a baby I’m sure you know there are a bazillion many different products out there to choose from and it can be terribly overwhelming. We’ve received a lot of advice/suggestions, and I’ve read a ton of consumer reports online. It’s seems that for every several “Excellent” reviews, there’s always a complainer. We did the best we could and know that people like/dislike products for different reasons and there’s always going to be “something” that “someone” doesn’t like about it. In any case, we chose this stroller for a few different reasons: 
{one} 
I could maneuver it easily through the aisles/It wasn’t unstable 
{two} 
I could easily collapse it/pick it up/open it back up
{three} 
There’s a lock on the front wheel if you choose to jog down a straight path
{four} 
The car seat handle made it easy to hold from every angle
{five}
 …and this might be the most important reason… 
You can hook your iPod up to its speakers!!!
[okay so maybe that’s Blake’s fav part about the stroller]


*****
Overall, I think we made a great choice about everything, but I guess we’ll find out when the little chickadee comes. She’ll be the real critic.


I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Labor Day!

  1. Oh man, if my husband heard there was a stroller you could hook your ipod to he'd probably be on board for a baby like RIGHT NOW! That's pretty sweet….

    What an awesome deal from Target, too! I got an email about that sale and almost wished I was pregnant just so I could take advantage! 🙂

  2. I love everything so far!!
    It looks so perfect 🙂
    And seriously, a stroller that you can hook your speakers up to? That ridiculous!! But awesome! What are they going to come up with next?

  3. Your nursery is coming along beautifully! And I probably would have picked that stroller as well – it looks awesome! I'm sure it's extremely overwhelming picking one out – there are so many!!

  4. I love the crib and the changing table! Mr.B is so excited about the stroller and he loves the play yard too! I hope you are having a great week! lots of love and hugs! xo
