Baby Shower Photos - Sept 2005

In September we made our last trip of the year to the Northwest to celebrate with our friends and family the anticipated arrival of our new son, expected on January 3, 2006. They threw us two baby showers -- one in Olympia, Washington; one in Newberg Oregon. Here are some of the pictures from these joyous occasions. Check out our blog post about it.

The Baby's Room

This weekend we painted the baby's room a beautiful, pale yellow. It took two coats of paint to cover the brown, but it was worth all the extra effort. Now we can begin putting the room together.

We finally found the perfect crib (at a price we were willing to pay). Actually, it is the very crib we have been eyeing for weeks, but the price was unreasonable. Well, Darren spotted an ad for a one-day-sale and we had to check it out. They had the floor model of the very crib we liked on clearance for a great price -- we snatched it up immediately.

It is a wonderful crib that we found -- solid wood; simple, but classic design. It can turn into a toddler bed, and even into an adult-size, double bed in the future. I can hardly wait to set it up.

There is lots left to be done, but it is a start.
