20 Week Pictures

It's a Boy!

Super excited parents!

Update from the weekend:

-Got an adorable curtain rod and blue gingham finials for baby's room
-Ordered the bedding (not one previously posted on the blog!)
-Shopped for furniture @ BRU and Baby Depot= bummer
-Picked out travel system and playyard
-Bought lined baskets for baby's stuff
-Cleaned out baby's closet
-Put up ceiling fan & new light kit in baby's room
-Picked out a possible name!

Whew! We were busy!

I need advice on cribs. I'm fairly short (5'3") and I'm finding that most of the cribs are stationary (or not a drop down side). Of course no one in the store was willing to drop the mattress down for me to make sure that I can reach the mattress @ its lowest level. I'm well aware that by the time the baby has the lowest level mattress setting, he'll be able to stand and reach. However, if I'm putting him in his crib asleep, that doesn't help me. The people at Baby Depot and BRU didn't seem to understand my dilemma.

So as of now I either want a dark wood (almost black) or white crib with a drop down side. It'd be even nicer if it converted to a toddler bed. Any suggestions from parents out there?

Oh, and I made two posts today, so continue reading down for further enjoyment at my expense. ;)

Wow, y'all had quite the productive weekend...I'm impressed!

We have a hand-me-down crib, so I'm not sure what the market of new cribs is like. I will say, though, that even after almost 15 months, I have yet to use the drop down side feature. Seems like a hassle, and it's amazing how flexible you get.

Sorry about the crying. I wish I could say that it will get better. I still cry at the drop of a hat. Just know, you're not crazy! :)

Congrats on the baby boy! They are so much fun! I had several melt downs like that in public too. It will get better - I promise :)
