Where Is The Baby Going To Sleep!?
SUCH a common question it seems, and while I ‘get it’ every situation has a solution, or a few… here are some of mine! I was able to finish the the co-sleeper Friday, I ended up sanding off all the dowels and the screw covers and then sealing it with the same stuff you seal cutting boards and butcher blocks with. It is completely safe and non-toxic so if she takes to chewing it for any reason it is safe and sound. It sits just perfect, its about two inches below my bed, she can’t roll up on my bed easily and more important, I can’t roll onto hers (because of the rails, and the fact I haven’t rolled off the bed for about 25 years…). I ended up putting it on the far side of the loft, it would be pretty difficult for her to find her way to the edge of the loft before I am able put up my rails (I have a pretty cool idea for that!). Denver has more room this way too 🙂
This was the last BIG thing I have to do/build before she gets here. I am getting the nesting bug so I will be going through all of the cupboards and closets tomorrow to fix couple things and get all the tools/construction debris leftover out of here. I am thankful for the tiny house because my closets and cubbies are few, it should be a pretty quick process! I also had to make some new skirts, I am out growing things fast! 🙂
Big thank you to Nathan and James for helping me swap out the mattresses! I may have been able to crawl under the trailer a couple weeks ago to fix the water but lifting half of a king size bed in the mud and muck was a bit much! (Oh, I have pictures of my tummy too, I am feeling very huge! I have limited mirrors in my house so I don’t really get the full body view much… I think I like it better that way for now ;-), I was a bit shocked to see the actual images, ha!)
