Steve got off work late and was pretty tired, but he hung in there and unpacked the boxes outside (great idea on his part - otherwise there would have been Styrofoam everywhere in our house) and carried everything inside for me. What a sweetheart! Since then I have been working hard and have finally gotten his room as well set up as I really can until he gets here - there are some big items in his room which won't really have a home until then, like the BOB stroller and both his car seats. He also gets to share a room with his daddy's weight set, so that stuff is in his room, but I think that considering the space we had to work with, it turned out pretty well! I can't wait to move into our own house to make him a real nursery, but for now this will have to do :)
It seems like he has so much stuff already, but I am so happy with everything we have got for him. The reason we already have so much is because I have been lucky with watching craigslist and sales on amazon and such - that is how we were able to get the exact car seats we wanted for him for so much less, and also things like his little travel swing, rug, ect. Steve loves the rug and said he always loved those when he was a kid. I have to admit, I did too! We had one at church in our Sunday School class that I used to play with so much! I know it will be a while before he will really be "playing" with it, but it adds color to his room, which was much needed since we don't want to deal with painting or putting much up on the walls.
This is what you see when you look to the right after walking through the door.
His swing is super light and folds almost completely flat. I usually have it folded
up but put it out for the picture.
