The Chislets

You and Me and the Baby makes 5!

It Takes a Village . . .

| Comments

There is a saying that “It takes a village to raise a child.”  In our case, it also takes a village to put the nursery together!  Like most women in their third trimester, I am definitely getting the urge to get the house ready for the babies.  Since I am on modified bedrest, I can’t do much of the work myself.  Lucky for Seth and I, our family and friends have jumped in to help us get the nursery ready for the Chislets!

Jaclyn (Mom) reading to The Chislets Earlier this spring, my Dad installed a screen door for us on the nursery so that we could keep the cats out, but still let fresh air in.  I love it.  Sometimes I sit in there and read and just enjoy being in a cat-free zone.

Aunt Jen & Uncle Neil helped with paintingTwo weekends ago, Jen and Neil painted the nursery while my parents took care of Kelly (and catered the event!  I was craving homemade pretzels, so Grandmom, Grandpop and Kelly made them for me!) 

Grandmom & Grandpop helped with the borderOnce the paint was dry, my Mom and Dad hung the border and helped get the closet organized.

Christian and Seth (Dad) putting the dresser together Last weekend, our good friend Christian came over to help Seth pick up the dresser and assemble it.  Little did these boys know that I picked out a huge dresser with a lot of unassembled drawers – It took a while to get it together, but I think that it looks great!

Overall, I am really happy with how the nursery is turning out.  We still have a couple things to go.  .  .  My sister-in-law, Kristine, is painting wall letters to hang over each of the babies’ cribs.  When my mom comes back to visit in August, we are going to get everything washed and put away in the proper places.
