So far, nothing has made me want my baby to be here like building the crib has. I find myself staring at the crib and picturing him laying there more often than I expected. Isaiah’s work schedule was really busy, so my stepdad helped me put it together. The assembly in total took less than 45 minutes.
After much debating, we decided to go with the Oxford Baby Willowbrook 4-in-1 Convertible Crib. This piece is gorgeously finished in the color graphite gray. To top it all off, we got an amazing deal on this one.
