I think I might have to buy a new dresser though since we only have two dressers for the 3 boys...

The whole thing will be disruptive to my son's normal way of doing things, so I want it done by about the end of October. Baby is due mid January, and I don't want my son getting the idea that it's the baby's fault he can't sleep in his "little bed" anymore.
I figure I'll get it done after the newbie arrives...much like I did for my kid. I'm insanely lazy.
We're co-sleepers, too, but I need a place for clothes and such. I so don't want my room being the catch-all.

We have about 700 square feet of house to finish upstairs so our boys can move up there. Then their room will become the girls room and the girls room with become my office/sewing area. Once all the office stuff is out of my room, there will be more space for twin stuff.

This baby we're using it as a good excuse to paint out the horrid dark green that was in the 3rd bedroom when we moved in.
We're also moving my dresser into that room for baby clothes and buying a closet organizer so we can put my clothes somewhere- I hardly use my dresser anyway, no big loss.

The baby is going to sleep in our room when he/she gets here but someday they will share that nursery room with dd.
Instead I am redoing my daughters room. I wanted to for her birthday, but pregnancy fatigue got to me first. Her room is still baby-ish and we are going to make it into a bigger girl room. So, we will be doing a room. Just not for baby!

We are ripping up the floor in Sept. & putting in the last of the hardwood. Then painting the upper portion of the wall, then sanding & repainting the wainscotting on the lower portion. This room was our "junk room" and has alot of stuff that will be donated since it will now be for the baby's things.

In all honesty, we probably won't have much of a "nursery" since we'll be cosleeping and will keep the crib in our bedroom. More of an alcove where the baby's things and diaper changing area will be kept.

This reminds me, we'll have to find a dresser or something to put baby's things in. AND somewhere to put it. Lol. We are running low on space here!
I've had a lot of people asking me about our nursery. I have told a few people we aren't really doing one and they were horrified This is our first. We plan to do a side car arrangement since we only have a queen and not much extra space in it. In our extra bedroom - supposed to be an office- we will need a bureau and armoire for the baby's things. The closet in the room is DH's. We have a completely unfinished upstairs that we hope to do in the next 1-2 years. I don't want to invest in doing a whole nursery when the downstairs room is actually the office, and when the upstairs is done we will be moving the bedrooms up there. I am actually feeling pretty ok with not having the cutesy nursery...we'll do a super cute toddler/big kid room later on. Not having the nursery I think will help us just relax and enjoy cosleeping and being near our baby...no empty crib and room making us feel guilty or like we are 'doing it wrong'.
