Big decision made.

Phew! Today was a big day! We went to the baby store - and I was totally overwhelmed by all the different cribs. Why do they have to be so fancy? Geez. Anyway - Aaron saw this one, (Baby Dream Ocean) and it's just perfect:

The store had it in a dark (almost black) color - but we ordered it in the white. It's pretty simple - but very sturdy (big sell for Aaron). I also got a matching 'dressing station'. Of course - once you really start looking at cribs you realize that my goal of not too much $$$ got shot out the window. Sigh.

The good news is that we did go today - turns out these things take 10 - 12 weeks for delivery. Damn. That puts it in our house end of October at the earliest!

Beautiful! Very good choice.

It looks great! That's a long wait, but as long as the crib is here before the baby is the important part.

And really, cribs are a great place for storing the clean clothes when you take fold them!!

It's lovely and will look sweet in the room-I love that jungle fabric!

I have to admit that my guts turned over when it came to pay for the enormous amount of stuff it seems that having multiple babies at once entails buying. Sad thing is that we do use it all and I've had to buy more. :)

It's lovely! We had secondhand cribs for both kids -- I can't even remember where the second one came from. We were very much of the "anything they'll use for just a couple of years or less can be secondhand" school. OTOH I had no trouble getting pregnant.

I have a bassinet you can borrow and welcome should the baby show up first.

Very nice! I love white furniture for baby rooms...makes it a lot easier to match other furniture.
