New Digs for Melissa
March 18, 2008 § 3 Comments
Well, we finally did it.
We finally broke down and got a new crib.
The kids were just getting too big and starting to kick the crap out of each other.
The lovely people at the American Academy of Pediatrics should be so proud of us now… we have submitted to their will!!! No more “cosleeping“.
Daddy put the new crib together last night, with the assistance of Daniel.
This of course means that there is no place for Grandma to sleep when she comes to visit unless she wants to sleep in the living room.
Daniel and Melissa and Dean and I loaded up the kids and headed over to Target with gift cards in hand and bought the Aspen crib for Melissa. It isn’t quite the same model, but the color of the wood is really close.We went over to Babies R Us and got a new mattress and mattress cover.
She seemed to enjoy it well enough but I thin that she might miss Daniel a little bit. She woke up me several times between 3:45 and 6 am.
So now, our tiny nursery is the home to two beautiful babies, two cribs, one dressing table and a rocking elephant.
On the feeding front, we tried green beans last night and the kids really enjoyed them. Then since she was acting extras hungry, Melissa also had some bananas. She REALLY enjoyed them.
So, after dinner, and after the bath, and just before the “super bottle” I was able to catch this cute shot… my little family, who ever would have “thunk” it!
