We started "nesting" this weekend! Very exciting but also exhausting! To get Henry's room ready, we had to clear out the guest room. Our biggest item was the queen-size bed, which was a bit of a struggle for just the two of us (I'm only 5'-0"). While I cried "baby Jesus" all the way down, and broke only two fingernails, we finally managed to negotiate the mattress and box spring down four very tight flights of stairs. After that came the tall book shelf, an old chest of drawers, and multiple boxes of books and junk - ouch, ouch, ouch!
So, Henry's room is now a nice blank canvas! I think one of the most difficult nesting decisions I've made is figuring out what type of crib to purchase! :O Henry will be 17-18 months by the time he comes home so we decided on one of those crib-to-toddler convertible cribs. Man, there are hundreds out there! Using the process of elimination, I ruled out a bunch of features (i.e. crib type, finish, style and price) and managed to finally narrow down to two cribs and bought one online - yay!
Anyway, I don't have a theme yet and it may remain theme-less, but I'll wait until the rest of Henry's furniture arrives! Can't wait! Oh, and I'm HOPING to find a lovely letter (or fingerprinting appointment) from the USCIS next week.
