Donald and I do not have a nursery, nor do we intend to set one up in the near future.  We have every intention of keeping the baby in our room.  Eventually we’ll kick the kid out, of course, (hopefully before they’re old enough to legally vote and buy pornography), but in the meantime we have set up our bedroom for the child and haphazardly placed a bunch of baby gear in the corner of our living room.  When I saw Donald sitting on the rocking chair there a few days ago, I think I fell a little bit deeper in love with him.  Even if he was reading some boring mail and not showing one iota of interest in the baby goods.

    —>We have that same rocking chair. I didn’t use it once while my child was a baby but it’s comfortable to sit in now.

    You don’t have a (GASP) nursery?! Oh MY GOD. BUT WHERE WILL THE BABY SLEEP? Where will you keep the baby during the day when people visit?! You will regret having the baby in your bedroom FOREVER.

    OH MY GOD.

    [Sorry, I had to do it, I couldn’t resist. That was the exact reaction I got from an IRL lady who freaked out when I said we didn’t have a nursery set up and didn’t plan on it.]

    Veronica - We get the same reaction all the time.  It astounds me.  I can’t even begin to count the number of times I’ve told someone that it’s not like a baby REQUIRES a nursery.  It’s not rocket science, people used to do this in CAVES, with DIRT and ROCKS and…well…I’m sure our bedroom will be just fine.

    Deb - I love the rocking chair =)  It’s a hand-me-down from my in-laws.  I have no idea if we’ll use it with the baby, but it’s great for reading a book.  The only complaint I have is that my cats love it too so its become a bit of a cat fur magnet.

    I have that same glider :)  We didn’t Ellis’ room much until she hit about 6 months, when we transitioned her from our bed into her crib. I was originally against the changing table (we used the pack-n-play changing-thingy) but once she outgrew that (ie, once she could roll over), I was all ~ get me to the furniture store STAT! 

    Do whatever works for you & your family & don’t let anyone else change your minds.

    Best advice you’ll ever receive was just given above here: Do whatever works for you and your family and don’t let anyone else change your minds. Couldn’t have said it better myself. :-)
