Holy Cribs Robin

You like? We got a super deal and I think they look lovely. We decided to go with dark wood so they might not show the bashing as much. Also the room is a really light colour so the contrast will be nice. Did we buy the converter pack - hell no. Totally forgot! I'll order it online later.
So , we are so nearly there. We have everything else on the registry and even if no-one buys anything from the list all I have to do is press buy and it all gets delivered.

Whoo hooooo!!

Past few days I have noticed the physical discomfort has started. My hips and back are a little achy (nothing too bad really) and I am going to stop wearing my rings just in case. It would break my heart to see my ring cut. We made our wedding rings with a goldsmith. Really cool thing to do. It took 9 hours (they are made of platinum and its a hard metal to work with) and we welded, shaped and soldered too our hearts content. Then I engraved East and WEst inside mine and DH has North and South inside his so when we travel we always know how to find each other (ahhhhhhh).

I am planning to take the kids on my business trips next year, at least the longer ones. Everyone I tell thinks I am mad but I will have the nanny with me and I get to see my little monkeys more. What's mad about that?? Anyway, I think its important that they learn to travel whilst young since their only living relatives live 12 hours away.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Summer is here so ice-cream tastes EVEN BETTER!!


  1. The crib is beautiful Be sure to post pics when they're both set up in the nursery! Online shopping has been a life-saver for me. Besides the cribs (which we borrowed from a friend) everything has been ordered online. I'm impressed you've been able ot wear your rings for this long. I put mine away around 25 weeks because my hands were so swollen.
    I think taking your babies with you is perfectly doable. My cousin had only one, and she traveled from LA to Chicago 3 days every week, and she did it without a nanny. You can do whatever you put your mind to. Go for it!

  2. Love the new blog look! I like your crib a lot. We went with the darker wood too - I hope you're right about masking the bumps and bangs.

    Probably good to take the rings off...they sound amazing. How clever the north/south/east/west idea! As for traveling with the kids, if anyone will manage just fine, it's you.

    Happy weekend!

  3. Hi EB!
    Love the new blog format- it is easy on the eyes and looks sharp- the cribs and stroller! TANGIBLE EVIDENCE- how incredibly cool.
    So glad to hear you are doing well, and happy happy 28+ weeks


  4. Love the crib!

    I highly recommended getting the converter kit now as opposed to later. My 60 year old crib manufacturer went out of business (and I held off getting the conversion kit thinking "who needs it now"). MISTAKE. We had to have one custom made.

    It's all coming together...
