Progress has been made! A nursery has been born from the bare white walls of a third floor bedroom!

At our birthing class, we met a couple also expecting their first child. After a little conversation, we found out that they too needed help getting their nursery ready. So a labor swap was arranged (it was a bit like arranging a play date, with the wives sending schedules, and approving plans :) On Saturday, Nish went to help them move furniture, and then on Sunday, the husband came over to help Nish paint the nursery-- well really sand and prime the walls. Apparently these walls don't like paint on them so much :( But after a few hours of talking, and maybe 30 minutes of working, the guys were ready for lunch! (just teasing, they worked hard!) Here's some evidence.

And then came the crib...
(He looks like he's taking a nap :)
Of course he had to try it out!
So after about 12 hours of labor (with intermittent ice cream/TV breaks), some hand holding, lots of practiced breathing, and some pushing-- the nursery was mostly completed!

We still lack a few finishing touches (like a mattress), but I'll be sure to post pictures of the complete nursery soon!

(Note: No husbands were harmed (at least not seriously) in the making of this nursery)
