YAY furniture!

So 2 days after we foundout the gender, my DH researched and order the furniture for the nursery. It includes a sturdy crib that changes into toddler bed, then full bed later on, a 5 drawer dresser and a changing table that is also a dresser. AND it didnt cost me a leg either Smile so i have been eyeing up this crib set on JCP for a few weeks now. it is the only set i can find that i like but it was a little pricey. Hubbie told me on Friday to order it! :yahoo:. i am not a pink girl, i wanted something different for the nursery. im so excited! i have a plan for the nursery! but now that the boxes that hold the furniture is tucked into a corner of my LR, it is killing me not to rip the boxes open and put it together so that i can see it!!!! NOW DH better get on it and get DD room done in the basement! only then can i rip out the current carpet in the nursery and redo that room. Im not feeling too patient right now Lol

here is the link if you want to see it...and i really like the paint color in this picture too, but i so far cant find it (or anything near it) at our local pain stores! GRRRR...

Getting furniture is so exciting! I like the room in the picture- very cute. We didn't do a pink room for DD either. Her room (at the old house- I haven't picked a color for her room here yet) was actually blue. Then the bedding/curtains/artwork/etc. are a floral that have blue/pink/green in them. So it was definitely feminine, but not overly pink.

That set it so cute, I think I saw something like it at Burlington last time I went there.

Its funny you mention wanting to rip open and put together the furniture! With my first, there was one night where my husband was at work, and I had a sudden and overwhelming desire to have the crib put together.... so I did it, alone, 8 months pregnant. It was an interesting project, I had to use our kitchen chairs strategically placed around the family room to prop up the pieces as I put it together, but I was so proud of myself when it was all put together!

Woohoo for furniture. Right now I'm waiting for our replacement crib, since ours was recalled. It's nice that they are still honoring the recall considering we bought our crib in 2007, but I'm super happy that we don't have to buy a new one.

Very pretty bedding set, very girly.

Yay for furniture! The bedding is beautiful (my first impression is that it definately is not overpowered with pink). LOVE the wall colour as well!

I love the bedding, it is really beautiful. My oldest DD had a Noah's ark room and it was a burgendy and cream color (it sounds horrible but looked awesome) but when we moved she was old enough to pick and she chose "shy piglet pink"-it is super pink, but she loves it.

LOL hmmm, my hubbie DOES have a drill weekend this weekend (national guard) HAHA, AND his son will be here...hmmmmm. i would so go for it if it werent for the fact that it would sit in my LR for the next 4 months! i was going for feminine, but not too girly! I LOVE LOVE the wall color. im can be pretty crafty, so i plan on making my own curtains and making my own wall art and stuff. oh and i bought some really cute fabric to make my own bibs too. DD is SO excited to make them with me, i got some not so normal fabric for them. HAHA this will work as i am very much NOT normal

A word of advice... put the furniture together IN the nursery. When I was pregnant with DD, DH had ours almost completely built in the living room when I walked in and said to him, "will that fit through the door?" Yeah... he had to take it apart and start over in the other room! Lol! I still like to remind him of that ;-).

Good advice! Someone told me to do this before we started and thus we had no trouble!

i LOVE paisley, but the only stuff i could find is a hot pink paisley and green coloring, which was pretty, but just too darn bright. i was afraid LO would never sleep with those colors surrounding here. i know i wouldnt Smile but its ok, im happy with this one.

Lol yeah, I like more calm colors for bedding. I was going to sew it myself, crib sheets are easy and I imagine a dust ruffle would be too. Bumpers really aren't all that safe so we're going to get one of those breathable ones anyways, not the prettiest but it does it's job Smile

i was gonna get the breathable ones as i read that ppl thought they could be a cause of SIDS. then i got into a conversation with a friend of mine, who's wife JUST had a baby and he said that in his hospital that he works at that it looks like SIDS could be cause by reflux that closes the airway. im no dr, it made sense when he described it LOL ...i will definately pay attention to the bumpers, but in the beginning atleast, i will use the bumbers. i was gonna sew all my beddding, then i realized with a fulltime job, a husband, a 14 year old girl...i just odnt have the time or energy for it HAHA

Yeah, I had bumpers on DD1 and DS' cribs until they could roll over or scoot. Than I was worried they'd scoot/roll into the bumpers, so I took them off. This time I figure since I can't find any bedding I really like that works for a smaller crib anyways that I'll just get a breathable one from the start that way it can stay on, so no stuck arms/legs.
There are so many theories on SIDS, most recently I heard it's undiagnosed apnea. Makes sense, they say pacifiers reduce the risk as well as putting a fan in baby's room to circulate air, makes sense both of those things would be more likely to help baby remember to breate Smile

after all these years, you would think they were atleast some idea as to what is going on, instead of a bunch of assumptions that worry us more :rolleyes:
