Nursery Update

Abby's nursery is coming along. Abby's crib is the focus for now. I don't trust myself to put it together by myself. Just all the screws ect overwhelm me. Meema on the other hand is very good at putting things together (and a lot of other things too actually). After working on the crib for a couple hours one day, she again came over the other day with reinforcements. Erin and Christopher were eager to lend a hand, but not for very long. This crib project is time consuming and a lot more complicated compared to crib assembly when I was a baby (says Meema and she would know she has put together three of them at least).


Christopher now over the process.


The end result on the second attempt. Just the sides left to do.


Finally I just thought I would show you a preview of my plans. The walls are actually a light lavender but looks grayish in the pictures. The trim is white. This fabric (pictured below) will be used for Abby's curtains and to cover her vanity seat (pictured above). Her crib bedding is pink. I was hoping to finish the crib today but decided to sleep instead. I had worked for a couple of days and was tired. Anyway evidently I will have lots of time to finish..........Sorry it's so hard not to be sarcastic at times as this wait continues to lengthen without ANY explanations given.

Beautious. Jadyn's walls are lilac and look about the same color as yours in photos...absolutely beautiful in person, though. Loving that crib and just remember that Abby WILL be in it! Sometimes that's hard to believe.

Pretty fabric!

I'm not done yet! I can probably move alot faster without my "helpers". Don't give up on me. I know you are impatient, but as Connie says, just picture the crib with Abby in it. I can. Love you, mom

Beautiful fabric! That room is going to be gorgeous. I've learned a lesson from your crib experience - get my BIL to assemble it!
