Getting Started with the Baby Room

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

Today we decided to start working on the baby room. Well until today it was the guest room with a queen size bed. I got a U-Haul van and we transported the bed to our parents-in-law in Alameda. In return they gave us a single bed which we took back to Palo Alto. In the evening we started to assemble the crib Karen had bought on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago. A really nice wooden Italian Paly crib which we bought for the super bargain price $125 including mattress. It came from a very friendly family in Los Altos who had just moved here from Australia and their baby had outgrown the crib.

The setup was more difficult then we thought (as usual) but after some back and forth we got it assembled. We also assembled the twin bed and put the changing table into the room. It looks already cute and the next step will be painting the room. I also have some special ideas for decorating the walls.
