Baby’s Room Pics – Boy or Girl?
February 10, 2009
So can you tell from the picture whether we’re having a boy or girl? I imagine the pink pretty much gives it away? Can you tell my wife’s excited to have a girl?
We spent most of the last few days working on the baby’s room, on Friday afternoon it was a plane Jane guest room and by Monday afternoon it was transformed into a baby girl’s room. A big thanks to my mother and father in-law who came into town and spear headed the “total makeover”. We’re also grateful to our friends who are letting us borrow the crib you see so we don’t have to go buy another one.
Watching my wife and her mom plan out the room setup, furniture, and decorations made me realize how much effort interior designers have to go through to put together a room, no wonder they charge so much : ) Luckily we didn’t have to spend a bunch of money on our room, our crack team of decorators did all the work and my wife got some great deals on the baby furniture that we bought.
I think one of the neatest things about the room is the bookshelf that my wife’s dad built. You can see it in the picture below, my wife had a doll-house bookshelf like it when she was a kid and loved it so much that she wanted one for her daughter.
Our son was feeling a little left out with all the commotion for the baby’s room and the cool new bookshelf so my father in-law built him something as well. Can you tell what it is from the picture below? It’s a marble run, you drop marble’s in the top left and watch them race down the ramps to the end. He loves it and I think it helped make him feel a little less jealous.
Anyhow, that’s what we’ve been up to the last few days and why posting has been a little sparse. Now my wife can breathe easier, the baby has a place to sleep : )
