Last night the ear doctor and I decided the time had come to put together the crib his parents lovingly bought for us. I was excited about this since it kind of seemed like one of those pre-baby "moments" that can really mean a lot. I was also worried that we'd open the box and it was explode with a million tiny little screws and pieces that would take 5 hours to figure out how to assemble.
We decided to put it together in our front room since there would be more space there for us to work. The thing went together in under 10 minutes.
At this point all we had to do was take on of the sides off to get it through the doorway.
So we had to totally dismantle the thing and rebuild it again in place.
And it was about a million degrees in this little room yesterday.
Once we finally got it put together, it was time to get out the mattress and put on the pad and sheets..
Put the mattress in place...
Once it was all set up we stood back and both stood there looking at the empty crib. It's all ready. We're ready. Our son has a place in our home.
