James was able to put Samantha's crib together today. I helped him a little, but he did most of the work. He did a good job. And with no instructions at that! Since we bought the crib off of Craigslist, instead of buying it new, it did not come with a manual. The doggies were very curious about what James was doing. He explained to them that the crib is where Samantha is going to sleep.
We are planning on leaving the walls blue even though we are going to be bringing home a girl. I've never been much of a girly girl, and I'm just not into pink and frills. We had the room painted right after we bought our house, and I picked this color out with a nursery in mind. We have a framed Dr. Seuss print that we bought at an art gallery in Sedona, Arizona in 2007. I matched the paint to the blue that is in the print. The room will have some feminine touches, just no pink.
The crib fits perfectly in this little nook in the room!
