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.
