first baby buys!
today we bought a dresser/changing table! it was totally out of the blue, but we found a cute, retro lowboy at a vintage shop on hawthorne for only 125 bucks, so we said ‘what the hey!’ and slapped a good old Sold sticker on it. we’ll be picking it up on friday, so i’ll get a before picture then (it’s an avocado green color, so i’ll have to paint it, but it’s totally worth it)!
we also bought curtains (well, fabric for curtains - they should be easy enough to bang out in an hour or so) - i’ll post a photo shortly of the pattern. i love the yellow (now i can FINALLY get paint to match!) and my theme is grey/yellow/birds/deer, so it works perfectly!
we’ve also decided to go with the montessori style nursery - i.e. no crib, cute art at eye level with the munchkin, lots of interactive, simple toys. i feel really good about this - it’s simple, cute and cheap! we’ve found a cute rug at ikea to put under the baby mattress so that if the munchkin falls off, he/she won’t land on hardwood flooring and we’ll be creating some really cool prints that we can change out from time to time to give the kid some variety.
tomorrow i’m 8 weeks and in 5 days, i get my first ultrasound! excitement!3
