The Crib

We finally decided to be good parents and not make the Baby sleep on the floor the first night s/he comes home:


I have to say, I am impressed with this piece of furniture.  It is sturdy, nice looking, and extremely easy to put together.  I thought it was going to be a 5-Heineken job, but it only turned out to be a 0.5-Heini job.  I think I got screwed on that one. 

Anyway, this block of wood is actually super spiffy and versatile.  It’s not only a crib, but with a few extra pieces of wood, it converts into a day bed or a full size bed.  Now, with all of these options, you might wonder how you’re supposed to keep track of the parts, tools, and instructions over a period of two or more years.  Well, they thought of that, too.  If you look at the mattress spring in the picture, you’ll see a white pouch.  The crib manufacturer included it and a pair of zip ties to hold the necessary tools, conversion parts, and instructions for whenever we decide to make the transformations.  I thought that was the coolest thing ever, because I know me, and without the pouch those tiny extra parts would have pulled a Jimmy Hoffa within the first 6 months.

I don’t know where I’m going with this.  Clearly, you can see that the title of my blog is totally appropriate.  I am so easily amused by the smallest things.

Edit: Oh, and speaking of baby things, here’s a profile shot from the 6.5 month mark:


Edit 2: I guess, technically, the bambino will be sleeping in a bassinet for the first few nights/weeks, but that ruins my joke, so blah.
