…and what a nightmare it was to assemble! But we managed, at last, after having to take it partially apart a couple of times. It’s not the first piece of furniture we’ve assembled, but it was very close to becoming the last, ending its days in a bonfire with two very tired, very annoyed parents-to-be dancing around.
Instead it’s all ready, in the bedroom, waiting for a baby.
Won’t be long now:
I’ve never seen such a huge crib, but then we did go for the convertible solution, so it will become a toddler bed/day bed at some point. It’s one of those 4-in-1 things. It can also be turned into a twin bed with some additional hardware.
I can just imagine our daughter 16 years from now, begging for a new bed:
“But mooooom, I’ve had this bed since I was born!”
“Tough luck kiddo, after all the suffering your dad and I had to go through to assemble it, you’ll be sleeping in that bed until you’re 40, at the very least! When I was young I had to sleep on the floor! Now go do your homework.”
Aside from that, I’ve knitted some baby bibs. I figured they could be useful. A couple in cotton for general food mess (probably won’t need those for a while), and a small one in soft superwash wool to catch drool. Such a lovely concept :p I will probably make more of those, but for the rest I’m considering using my bluebell bib pattern instead, since, well, it’s really cute.
My sentences are crazy today.
