Project Nursery

The garage remodel is dragging on a bit– the room is usable, but not all of the shelves are in yet. We have, however, cleared enough space to set up some of the piles of baby things we’ve acquired:

A few details:

The crib mobile establishes the reptile theme of the decor, with some incongruously cheery dinosaurs:

FutureBaby already has a fine start on a stuffed animal collection, visible on the bookshelf in the back of the first picture:

Note the awesome dragon puppet and cute plushie dinosaurs.

And, of course, any baby needs to have at least one animal bigger than itself:

Not visible in these are the little dragons that Kate has cross-stitched for the nursery, or the quilt cross-stitched by my 94-year-old(!) great-aunt, or the fuzzy dinosaur blanket. You can almost see the dino-pattern sheets, but they’re mostly hidden.

We have wonderful and generous friends and family, who are seeing to it that FutureBaby will be well equipped whenever he or she emerges.

    I’ve been wondering — what is Future Baby’s due date?

    I was just about to ask the same thing. But looks like you guys are prepared.

    So did you ever decide how you’re going to refer to FutureBaby once FutureBaby becomes PresentBaby?

    (Personally I like the idea of calling no-longer-FutureBaby “Little Uncertain”)
