We are officially baby-ready!! This is the first time I’ve felt like we would be just fine if he decided he was going to come tomorrow. We have cleaned and organized our entire house (like, OCD style). We have finally finished the baby nursery (well, except for a night light and photos for the frames on the wall). All of the baby clothes are washed and folded and put away in drawers, organized by size. His diapers and wipes are stock-piled and stored according to size. His bath tub, first aid kit, and “whale shower caddy” are all in place. We even have our entire house “baby-proofed”- heavy furniture bolted to walls, medicine and cleaning products up on top shelves and/or locked up, and outlet covers in every outlet. 🙂 There is a safe, warm place for baby to sleep in every room. We even have the infant car seat in the car! Packing my hospital bag is on the to-do list for tomorrow. Only 33 more days until he is due- and now that everything is ready for him, I seriously cannot wait. 🙂 Anyway, as requested, I wanted to share pictures of his finished nursery. 🙂
Chandelier and cow skin rug from IKEA, one of my favorite stores.
Some of things on the shelves: My bunny, Carrots, from my childhood- I couldn’t spend a night without him. The new bunny from Grandma, purchased at a very special store in NYC, my brother’s bookends from when he was a baby, filled with my favorite books from my childhood, and “Play With Me Puppy” from Beverly Novakovic.
