Here are long overdue pictures of the nursery.
Here’s the bookcase that needs better organization, which will have to wait until there is more stuff to put on it. Right now, I just didn’t want it to topple over, so the stuff is all spread out. On the second shelf is the hat I made for Baby in San Francisco and on the third shelf is a cross-stitch I did a few months ago that my mom started for my birth. I put the dates 1978 and 2008 at the bottom. (I know you can’t see it. I should have taken a close-up!)
Here is the dresser. Cute lamp, a glass sculpture called “Joy,” and my Beatrix Potter set that I was obsessed with when I was very small. To the left of the dresser, you can see the white Diaper Genie peeking out, because we don’t do stink.
If you open the dresser drawers, you will find the fruits of my OCD labor: highly organized bins separating each item by function and size. From left to right (1) socks and accessories like hats and booties, (2) tiny t-shirts in size 0-3, (3) onesies size 0-3, (4) outfits, gowns, etc. size 0-3. (Second drawer down contains bins for sizes 3-6, 6-9, and beyond, and the third drawer has bins with receiving blankets, big soft blankets, and, for now, miscellaneous items.)
So now you have a visual for Baby’s new habitat. We have everything ready. We just need the baby!
