Smile I bought a crib too

I realized a couple of weeks ago that I was going to have to do something about furniture. Marek will be 18 months when baby 2 arrives, and he's definitely not going to be a good choice for moving up to a big boy bed early. I'm sure he'd be all over the house! He's currently in our nursery, which is a bedroom right next to ours that has frosted french doors between our room and it.

At first I was thinking maybe I could just leave him in his room and have the new baby in a pack 'n play in our room for a while, but we were concerned that the new baby would wake him up and vice versa, since the rooms are so close and connected. I finally decided we might as well get him set up in one of the other bedrooms, and get the nursery ready for somebody else.

So long story short, I decided to get a convertible crib that can transition to a toddler bed and a full size bed. The bedroom he's moving to already has a couple of dressers and nightstands in it, so I got the light wood to match that so I didn't have to buy all new case goods.

Here's what I got. I was pretty stoked that I got it for $300 even with tax and shipping to the store.

That is a gorgeous crib, I love it! BTW, I thought that Benjamin would be all over the house once we moved him to a bed, we did it at about 22 months or so and he doesn't even try to leave the bed once he is in there for the night... shocked me that's for sure!
