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!
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.
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.
