Baby's Room: Sleepy Time

One has to wonder about oneself when the most exciting thing that's happened all week is coming home to this:

Our crib mattress arrived!

Even though I've spent hours putting together our baby's room, the naked crib and exposed wire bottom just made it feel incomplete even though she won't actually be sleeping in her crib immediately.

My mom bought us the Kendall Crib from Pottery Barn to match the furniture we bought off Craigslist. We went with the Safety 1st Heavenly Dreams Crib Mattress, which seemed like a reasonable, middle of the road choice. It fit the crib perfectly.

Maybe it's new parent guilt, but I felt compelled to offset the middle-of-the-road, completely reasonable crib mattress with an arguably over-priced organic crib mattress pad.

The sheets are also from Pottery Barn, but I passed on a bumper (apparently now they are considered very unsafe), crib skirt, quilt and other matching pieces.

The whole set up: The baby blanket on hanging on the wall was my baby blanket. You can see she has a small collection of toys and books (kind of a sad collection of books -- we'll get more) on the shelf. The plate on the wall is from a Peter Rabbit collection.

I think the only thing that would make this room more complete is an actual baby.
