On Step Closer to a Nursery

Last Saturday morning my mom, husband, and I took a road trip to pick up the crib we ordered for the babies nursery. Instead of getting a crib at Walmart or Babies R Us we ended up going to a independent baby boutique about an hour away. It as actually listed in the Baby Bargain Book in the Top 20 Recommended Boutiques, so I had to check it out. (This book has been so helpful)

Berg's Baby and Teen were so nice and welcoming. They weren't pushy, were very helpful with our questions, and we had absolutely no problems.
David and I went to look at cribs when I was about three months, just to see what was out there and what we liked. We went back again with my mom around 19 weeks when we found out we were having a girl. The crib we had agreed upon is a little girly in my opinon and if we were having a boy I may have changed my mind. At that time we made a deposit and put it on lay away. They said it would be 6 to 10 weeks before it came in. They called just three week later to say it was already in. Since we put it on layaway we still had six weeks to pay it off. But they would hold it free of charge for as long as we needed them to. So last Saturday we went out there to pay the remaining balance and pick it up.

It is at my parents house for the time being until we paint and get the nursery ready. I am so excited to finally get things moving. I can't wait until the nursery to ready to have a baby living in it.
Here is what the crib will look like, in cherry. We also got the conversion kits so it can be a toddler bed, day bed, and a full size bed. This is all in hopes we will never have to buy a new bed frame just mattresses.
