Today was a productive day. We put together the glider and then the crib. Surprisingly, I didn't have to take anything back to the store. Nor did I have to go back and redo something (this often happens when I build things, lol) I have to give Graco a shoutout for that one. While the directions looked like hieroglyphics, the labels were undoubtedly clear!
There is one more part to the story, but it's kind of embarrassing. I think I better preface it by saying, "Don't laugh."
Seriously. Don't laugh.
So here we are. Everything is a lot easier than expected. The glider is finished and the crib is halfway there. I'm bending down trying to screw in the bottom leg when all of the sudden I lose my balance. Not wanting to fall on the springbase and break the brand new crib, I extended my arm to brace myself. Long story short, I ended up falling on the base AND hurting myself.
What does my wife say??? "I wish I got that on camera...I don't even know what just happened."
To give her credit, she didn't laugh and she did ask if I was okay. Like I said, it was embarrassing.
Ok, now that I got that off my chest, here are the pictures of the nursery so far...
