We have a Crib!

Baby Prep Update: Yesterday Stephen picked up and put together the crib and changing table!!! I LOVE THEM! I realize it's kinda silly to get excited about a piece of furniture, but in my mind this is the beginnings of making Caleb's room into an actual nursery. We had already cleared the room out and moved a love seat into the room (it reclines and is easy to fall asleep in, which I'm thinking will come in very handy), but that was pretty much the extent of the nursery prep so far. Now that we have a crib and changing table, it's actually starting to look like a nursery!

I have to brag just a little bit about this crib (and sing some praises to God as He provides even in the little things) because we got such a great deal on it. You might have heard of Craigslist - the online site where you can post items you are wanting to sell/get rid of so that other people in your community can buy/have them. I've personally bought and sold a handful of pieces of furniture on Craigslist at some great prices. I've been scanning the baby section for a few weeks to see if I could find a good deal on some of the baby items we still need, and last week I came across a beautiful crib and changing table at a great price! Most of the other nice cribs I'd been seeing were at least a hundred dollars more than what we paid and they didn't include a separate changing table, so I was pretty excited when I saw this one. I went and checked out the crib last week and then yesterday Stephen picked them up. It was kinda late by the time we got home and got them in the room, so I didn't take any pictures but I'm hoping to tonight!** Hooray for being just a little closer to having things ready for our little man when he gets here.

**Pictures are now above!

I love the crib! It is beautiful; it looks a lot like Sterling's. Getting the crib up makes you realize there is really going to be a baby living in here.
