Saturday morning we went for a cross border drive, with starbucks in hand, in my parent's full sized van (definitely towers over our mazda 5) .... with a purpose of course.... to pick up our two cribs for the twins. I am always so surprised at the obvious differences when we cross the border. I always seem to comment on how it really feels like we are in a different country... enter Andrew's sarcastic reminder that we are indeed in another country. The trip took about 2 hours round trip.
After a quick detour to Dairy Queen (I can't help it.... it is just soooo good right now) we were home, Andrew had them unloaded and we prepared to dismantle our guest room number two. Taking that stuff out felt great... having two guest rooms when you are trying to get pregnant is torturous... double the reminder that you are not pregnant on a daily basis.
The slightly neurotic part of me has to mention that the dresser in the pictures was never meant to be a permanent fixture in its current state. The dresser was always for the future nursery.... we have big plans for it!
Next up was the assembling of the cribs (they came from Walmart so clearly assembly is not included)
|There were numerous reminders to strictly follow the directions... this was a very simple assembly... especially for me since I largely sat there and watched.... and took photos, someone had to document this memorable milestone!|
|Heidi was very curious as to what was happening to this room...|
|First crib.... done!|
|Second crib... almost done|
Now came the fun part... trying to decide how these two cribs would be placed in the twin nursery.
|This offers the most space around, but I just can't take that they aren't symmetrical|
|I feel like this looks like we just pushed them aside temporarily so I'm not loving it|
|This has potential .... if we didn't plan on keeping the dresser in the room and if we weren't getting a glider.|
|I don't know about this. The verdict is still out.|
|Heidi on the other hand has mixed feelings about the cribs.... don't you love her new hair do!|
