Rooms and Beds

Lily will be almost 2 when we come home and she will hopefully be sleeping in a crib still. We are setting our crib up in our bedroom so that she is close by but not "in" our bed. But, in the off chance she does not like the crib at all, we decided we would spring for a twin bed a tad early. We do not know what her sleeping arrangements are at the orphanage. The only thing we know is that she is restless at night and sleeps well if her back if rubbed. Hence, the crib in our room! We will either get an Aerobed or a trundle with mattress for her twin bed so that one of us can lay down with her and not have to be on the floor.

Friday Nate, Jonah and I drove up and down 28th street to all the furniture stores. We had checked out Talsma's and JcPenny online before this excursion. Amazingly, we found a great deal on a whole bedroom set at Klingman's. It is a discontinued style and it was another 25% off! We got the whole set for less then the bed/mirror/dresser combo I liked the most at JCP!

I totally love the whole set and can't wait for it to come. Since it was such a great deal we had to have it delivered sooner then later so it will be here the Monday after Thanksgiving. Jonah will move to the basement with Andrew or end up sleeping in Lily's bed if he doesn't do well down there. It seems like we are doing all of this a tad early but when we get our Travel approval there are only a few weeks before we actually travel and there is enough to do in those last 2 weeks.


  1. Its beautiful and so girly!! I love, love, love it! Congrats on another great find! You are my kind of shopper.

  2. Kristin - It's all so pretty! I really like it! Can't wait to see her room when it is all done.
