Putting things together

Jason and I have been working on putting things together. Last week, we got the pack n' play together with little to no troubles (we even found the instruction booklet...it was hiding in a pocket that I didn't notice when unpacking the beast.)
Pack n' play
This week, we (mostly Jason) put the crib together. It was not as difficult as it looked, but sometimes it felt like you needed 6 hands to put it all together.

On my last "snow" day, I worked on putting together a project that my cousin, Jen, gave to me as a shower gift. She presented me with wall words ("Heaven's gift"). It is a lovely sentiment however I did not want to put it directly on the wall (what if I messed it up??? no gift and I'd have to repaint!). So, I purchased a poster frame and set to work following the instructions on how to apply the art to the glass in the frame. Once that was complete, I looked through my stash of scrapbooking paper (I need to get some of that finished too...like our wedding and honeymoon albums from 5 1/2 years ago!) and found paper in a pale blue with the word "baby" randomly written over the paper. I had enough to fill the frame (whew!) and I think I did a pretty good job of lining the pages up nicely. Thanks, Jen!

The changing table/dresser was SUPPOSED to be delivered today between 1-5pm. Around 5:30 we get a phone call saying that they should be able to arrive by 7pm. Not a problem, but that's pretty late on a Friday evening. Not 10 minutes later, we get another phone call asking if they can come by 7:30. Sure, but that is the latest you can deliver the furniture to us. Why? Because we have plans. Oh... Needless to say, the furniture did NOT get delivered this evening. It should be here on Sunday... if not, the hormonal, pregnant woman will be having some choice things to say to the delivery company and to Babies 'R Us for using said delivery company.
ETA: Changing table/Dresser was delivered on Sunday afternoon! We still have to put the feet on it, but it's here!

I hope "Monster" likes his room decor ;)
We rec'd a very nice bassinet from my parents and Collin decided that he HATED it after 2 nights. Thank God Babies R Us has a great return policy!
