Our baby will sleep with us for as long as possible, but he will have a room as well. We have a 3rd bedroom here for him and i have hated it being a junked storage room. I started clearing it out and primered the walls very soon after i found out we were expecting. DP moved the very same heavy boxes i dragged out right back in there, and it has been sitting half junked quarter finished for some time. We did move in a small bookshelf which has baby toys and books (saved from ds) waiting. And I have bought some boy clothes, couldn't resist. Yesterday I finished the closet, cleared out, painted freshly white with the shelves gardener's green (leftover from painting my bathroom). And the few baby things I saved or have bought are neatly arranged in there. I am trying to get dp to paint the ceiling light blue, hang the ceiling fan, and the paint trim white, but I still have not decided on the perfect (light green) wall color. After we paint, which I hope to have done within the next month, we plan to pull up the carpet. We hope the wood floor looks nice underneath, but otherwise dp manages a flooring department and so we have no shortage of rug opportunities, lol. I want to get this done, because my sister is ready to give me her crib (which baby may never sleep in, lol). I also have a wooden twin bed frame i plan to put in there as well, so I have to buy mattresses and then will have fun dressing the beds in blue and green patchwork. I had a room like this for ds when he was born. He went into the crib in there a time or two for a nap or to bed before me, but we used the twin bed a whole lot. It was our favorite place to read and nurse during the day and we slept together in there some nights when 3 in bed felt like too many, lol. So for me the twin bed in baby's room is much more important than the crib. I would also like to paint some pictures for the walls and hopefully make lots of neat things for this baby (cloth dipes especially) beginning in a couple of months.
