Fun Stuff

This is the crib that we ordered about a month ago; it's still laying in pieces in the future nursery. I guess we better get to work :)

We got this glider in another color/pattern. I'm still nervous about whether or not I'll like it because it's hard to tell anything from those tiny swatches!
I did try to choose something versatile so that we can use it in our living room later on when we don't have a need for a nursery.

After lots of online research, I decided to go with this diaper bag. I found some other ones online that I liked, but I really wanted to be able to see it in person so I found this bag locally. There were several to compare from in the store, but this was my favorite. It's much cuter IRL.

I'm glad you picked that crib and didn't listen to mom...so what bag did you end up getting? What's the name?
