Thanks for all your input! We were still debating things Thursday night and figured we had at least another day or so before the movers showed up. We were woken up at 8am Friday morning, which since we are still on California time was equivalent to 5am, to the doorbell. I heard Kolbe tell the person we weren’t expecting them and then he came in to our room and informed me the movers were here! I was excited all our stuff was here but we still had things we were planning on getting done before they showed up- like deciding on the baby’s room location.
First off, my vote was for room #2, I like the idea of having the baby close and since she is our first I figured when she is sleeping I can keep quiet. I also figured our guests would have a little more privacy being down the hall and when this little girl is older her room can move toward the back of the house and she can have some privacy (that’s if we stay in Florida that long). Also we live in a quiet subdivision and our house is in a cul-de-sac so road noise and neighbors aren’t really an issue. Kolbe had wanted #4 because it is the smallest room and she could graduate to the bigger room when she was older or when we have our next kid. The pool heater is right outside the door and it is kind of loud and I don’t want her to be at the very back of the house.
Anyway, the movers, so with them being here unexpectedly I had to make a quick decision. I chose room #3, I’m still not sold on having her so far down the hall but I figure she will sleep in a bassinet by our bed until she sleeps for more than 2 or 3 hours at a time, and thanks to a few ideas if she keeps us awake I will put her bassinet in the closet so I can get some quality 2 hour naps between feedings! I do love the size and layout of this room and the walk-in closet is going to be awesome cause she already has a complete wardrobe for the first year of her life! Here is a picture of the room right now, I need to get thinking on paint colors and figuring out where all the furniture goes!
While I’m sitting here writing this post the little girl is doing what feels like small tidal waves in my belly, she is definitely getting stronger! I’m at 31 weeks, I can’t believe we have just over 2 months left! At lunch we were talking about how little time we had left and Kolbe said, ya I guess we need to start thinking about getting the car seat installed and your overnight bag packed. Yes honey we do need to get working on that stuff but let’s get the room painted and the crib assembled first
