The Nursery

I know I showed you guys the bedding but I thought I would lay out the plans for the nursery. We are planning on co-sleeping the girls for as long as we can. The research says that it reduces the chance of SIDS and they are naturally more comfortable that way. That being said we are going to set up both cribs so we don't get used to one and then feel cramped when the second one goes up. I figure we will make the unused crib the pretty crib with the comforter, bumper and all the stuff that can't safely be in the crib they sleep in. At least it will look pretty. Then the sleeping crib will just have sheets and dust ruffle. Much safer for SIDS.

We bought a nice big dresser for cloths that will have a changing pad on top: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Then we bought a smaller dresser for blankets, towels, burp cloths, etc. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

We are hoping to get the glider and ottoman, but not sure if it will fit in our budget. We aren't going to paint, but my Mom might help me put up the matching border to our bedding set. Then we'll get a throw rug (cause we have wood floors) and other cute accessories. I am hoping to find some storage baskets and wall organizers. The more storage the better.

The nursery is going to be quite cramped, but at least that way we can keep a lot of the clutter in one room. I will make sure to post some pics as the room progresses.




About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
