The Crib

March 30, 2009 Sarah Coggins

We’ve been trying to decide on a crib for weeks and decided to go look at another store today. Trent & I were both drawn to the same one. A beautiful, wood crib with fixed sides. It converts into a toddler bed and eventually full size bed. The front side is lower than some of the other fixed side cribs we’ve seen allowing me to easily reach into it.

Lucky for us, it was on sale, in stock and fit into our CR-V so we were able to bring it home and set it up today. Next we need to find a mattress. My sister has already bought the bedding for us. And then it will be ready for Baby. 🙂 In the meantime, we’ve lined it with aluminum foil to keep the cats from trying to get into it.

Thanks, Mom!!!

    it's perfect. I really like how baby furniture is so sophisticated these days and how it can convert to save money as the child grows. I think you made the perfect choice, and on sale too! :)
