Sunday we dragged the box into the living room and started to unload it. You should’ve seen Nathan’s face when he saw all the parts. In all fairness, I DID tell him that it didn’t come assembled. And I DID tell him that even if we had bought a high dollar crib from BRU he STILL would’ve had to assemble it. But apparently he was still a little surprised. And not thrilled, as you can see by his face in the pictures.
Lots of Hardware
The big box it came in
He's thrilled, can't you tell?
Lots of parts
We put the crib together first. Then we carried it down the hall to the nursery, and realized that there was not ANY way, no matter how we twisted or turned the thing, that it was going to make the 90 degree turn into the baby’s room. So we had to take it apart and put it together again in the baby’s room. At that point we took a break as some of our friends had invited us out for the evening.
Monday we ran errands all day and were busy until late in the evening. When we finally got home I put on some coffee and we put together the changer and the dresser. By then the cats had made a HUGE mess all over the house with the Styrofoam—they liked to get in the big box and scratch at the Styrofoam until it flew around, then roll in it and get it all over everything. Marcus, the dummy, ate some of it and barfed. Ugh.
You can sort of see the vine pattern in the rug
Behind Nathan is the cradle that my parents used for me and my siblings. It will go by our bed when Piglet is born.
