Back from an exciting weekend, and I hope you are all well.
As you may know my had her baby shower Saturday and it was a good success. I wasn’t there for more than a few minutes before packing everything up and leaving but I have some shots of the ‘haul’. Here we have a shot of most of the things on the table. You can see we asked for books, so we will have plenty of things to read for him. We have some diapers, and regular baby stuff. It is hard to look at so much clutter, my chest tightens when I see it haha.
I was able to get a few bigger items out of their boxes and throw them together that night. Here is the highchair that we got all assembled.I like to keep the instructions with everything because they fold and come apart so many ways now a days that I can’t keep it all straight.
We also got this little swing thing. It can run on D batteries or plug into the wall. It swings back and forth as well as plays music and nature noises. It also vibrates, which of course requires more batteries.Oye!
This was the advice board, where everyone was able to jot down a piece of advice for my wife. It is a pretty neat take, as far as set up goes.
We were able to put most of the stuff in its new home and decorate a bit more in the babies room. It comes together much better with the globe on the shelf and the adventure blanket on the chair. The crib and everything was all made too but I forgot to get a picture of that.
We finally got done washing and drying baby clothes for the first time, and put some of the stuff away. We kept the diapers on the floor because they are wrapped, along with the monitors since we have no stand to put them on yet. Some towels, and lotion are in those bins as well as stuffed animals. His little shoes are in the top left. 😀
That was the end. It was a long day but we got a lot done. Sunday my dad, brother, and myself went back out to our camp. We had the goal of getting the roof rafter up, and we did! Check it out.
Our camp is about 15-20 minutes away, for reference. We had to go buy 50 2×4’s take them up to the site to measure two of them for cuts. Once we did that we had to drive back home and make the cuts on all 50, and load them back up. We then left and went back to camp and put them up. It isn’t very fun to carry them through the woods haha. I think since you last saw we also have the floor joists in too! Our next goal is to get that dang roof up so the wood doesn’t warp more and get gross.
On one last note I have plans to take the dog to the vet tonight as well as buy supplies to make an indoor firewood rack. I drew up the design and the dimensions. It will cost me about $100 to get the lumber, stain, wood filler, screws, and wood glue. I already have nails and a nail gun for the panels if we chose to put them on. After that, if my wife approves I want to make an eight spot cubby storage shelf. Once we have that made or bought, we can put our baby monitor on it.
That was my weekend! It was very busy, but fun. I hope you all enjoyed your time here. If you like what you see spread the love!
I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀
