Today we received a call that our crib was delivered! I was so excited. Of all the nursery furniture we have acquired, this is the only piece that is both pricey and something we bought new. All of the other furniture is hand-me-downs or things I have bought on consignment. We were afraid to buy a crib that was old due to all of the safety concerns with drop-sides and bar spacing. So, we decided that finding one we liked, despite the price, would be an investment not only for the safety of our baby but, to use for future babies as well.
