James and I finally got around to switching the crib out of our bedroom and into the nursery last weekend.� It's funny, most parents-to-be have the nursery set up long before their babies are born, and it took us over seven weeks after Emmett's birth to get it together.� Anyway, our apartment is finally in its final formation - hooray!� Here are a few pictures, which I'll also post under the "Our Place" tab.� Notice the cool stickers that form a tree on the wall.� My sister, Lauren knew we weren't planning on painting the nursery since our lease is up in September and we'd have to paint it back anyway, so she gave them to us as a Christmas gift.� Thanks, Laur!

What a little weekend of milestones!� Emmett turned one month old yesterday (can you believe it?) and spent his first night in his very own bedroom (which I think was a lot tougher on mommy than it was on baby).

James and I pretty much spent the whole weekend planning and rearranging the furniture in our apartment with the goal of finally setting up the nursery (for the most part).� To make the transition from our bedroom to the nursery a little easier (again, probably just for me), we've left the crib in our room for the time being and set up the Pack 'N Play in the nursery.� I figured this would make things a lot simpler if I decided I didn't like how things were going after the first couple of nights and wanted Em back in our room again.

I'm happy to report that the night went pretty well (normal behavioral hiccups aside).� It may have taken me a little longer than usual to get to sleep due to worries about possible baby monitor malfunctions or kitty mishaps (thankfully, Oliver kept his distance), but in the end, it seemed to work out pretty well.� I like to think Emmett enjoyed his independence, too.

Maybe I'll still give it a couple more nights before we move the crib into the nursery for good.� You know, just to be sure ...
