I know I know... our babies sleep with us and we don't NEED a nursery... But I still have one anyway. For all the clothes and diapers! Just wondering if anyone else has one and wants to share pics.

Diaper stash

Can you guys tell that I am just downloading from my camera?

Oh, and I haven't hung anything on the walls yet. I figured I've got a lonnnnng time before baby actually sleeps in there, so I'm not in a rush!

Oh, how funny... we fixed up a nursery this weekend, too. For Nora, . She's finally using her bed in there, so I hung up some pictures and got her a dresser. Only took me, um, about 18 months. Oh well, it was kind of cool that she could show me what she wanted for her big girl room!

I figure I'll do the same for this babe!

Your nursery is lovely... it's nice to have a little space dedicated to the babe, even if they don't actually sleep there, isn't it?

Very nice! I don't have room for a nursery. We only have 2 bedrooms. So ds is in one and the baby's dresser is in there and baby's change pad is on my dresser and the crib is sidecarred.

Lovely room and very pretty crib. I found a crib very convenient for holding stuff until you got a chance to put it away. I think dd had a nap there once ;-) I had a nursery last time, which I enjoyed for quiet nursing time, but we don't have room in our new house. DH and I both have home offices, so baby stuff is in our bedroom.

We don't have a nursery either, but we spent all weekend changing things around. Moved dd's bed into our bedroom so that we can fit 4 together in the family bed and had to move the dressers into dd's room because we didn't have space to open the drawers Put the pack-n-play (for use as a changing table/storage area) into the family bedroom and put up some shelves w/ baskets for clothes. Using the pack-n-play to hold all the diapering supplies.

So now we have a family bedroom, a dressing room, a playroom and an office. Not really the conventional set up

Maybe I'll take pictures one of these days.

Very nice. I think it would be fun to have a nursery. We've just never had room - and we've lived in a different house w/every new addition, lol. Historically, our kids don't get a room until they are 4 except our current 4 yr. old doesn't have one. I tell her that she shares her sister's but I don't think she buys it. She has clothes in her sister's room but sleeps in her bros bunk bed This little one - oh Lord - I have no idea where he's going to sleep when he's older...

Yep, that's what I use a crib for. This is actually the one that my mom bought for DS. It got very little use, but looks nice in a room! It turns into a full size bed and we will make that room into a guest room once we move the bean into the current guest room at who knows what time. We gave DS a "big boy" bed at 15 months and he has just now started to sleep in it all night. Though right now he is cuddled up next to DH in our bed.
