Time is passing quicker than I could have imagined. Since the weather this weekend was unbelievably beautiful (in the 60’s in February in Ohio?!) we decided to make the trek to Ikea in Pittsburgh to tackle our short list for the nursery. Of course that short list became a full car and a delivery truck, but we did really well with maximizing our little budget.
After lots of research and talking with fellow moms I trust, we went with the Sniglar cribs with the Vyssa Vinka mattresses. We have a twin bed that is going in that room too, so we stocked up on new linens and a mountain of pillows to make it a comfortable place to nurse two babies at once.

As a MAJOR bonus, we also finally decided it was time to upgrade our bed set-up. Our bed and mattress were our first Ikea purchase back in probably 2006. Somehow in our excitement, we ended up bringing home a full sized bed and a queen sized foam mattress. Since we couldn’t afford to go back and exchange it, we just plopped it on top of the bed and have been sleeping on a concave mattress ever since. In addition to being the incorrect size, it is just worn out and way past it’s prime. Every time we saved up the money to upgrade, something would come up (We love you Logan!).
So this time we just did it. We are moving into the office and all our dressers and clothing storage are staying in the nursery, so we picked a bed frame that is super practical. In a week our Brimnes bed with the storage headboard are going to be delivered, along with a brand new Hesstun mattress. And they are both queen sized! Yay! I’m most excited for the matress. It’s such an upgrade from our old, thin mattress. Sleep will be precious, so we might as well be comfortable.
