We're making progress on the baby's room. We did decide to go with the light orange (cantaloupe slice) paint color I saw a few weeks back. And Ben has a mock-up of the mural done.
Furniture shopping is happening too. We visited the Nursery Nook, a small business in Bloomington, and it was fairly traumatic. The place is a dump. It's practically a shed. I guess they just don't care since they are the only business selling nursery furniture in town. Anyway, we got some ideas (mostly things we don't like) and did some more looking online. We also got a copy of the Baby Bargains book so we can check out tips, safety ratings, etc.
Overall, we are making SLOW progress on cribs, and we have to make a decision soon. We haven't really liked anything we've seen, nor do we want to pay $700. We're looking for a classic crib with clean lines. Above all, we want something that has a good safety rating. Suggestions? Please weigh in with your crib expertise!!
