and Jacob and I put it together. It's a lovely crib, and almost matches our dark bedroom furniture exactly (looked lighter in the pic). It was a bit challenging -- whomever printed the instructions (which are on the crib mattress base, so no losing!) did it totally wrong for the very first step and it took us a while to figure out that they meant a different screw, jerks. But, we got it done. It wasn't heavy or anything, so I didn't exert myself. Plus, we put it together right where it would stay, so that helped. And it was really nice having Jacob help me.
ATM I have it as high as it will go, so the mattress is 12" from the top. And, it's only 36" tall -- I don't know if you know how short that is, but it's VERY short! I knew that when I bought it, but I have no sense of measurement, so it kind of surprised me. But I do love it.
Only bad thing I can tell right now is that with it at its highest, I'll need an 18" skirt -- that isn't a common length. So, I'll probably buy some fabric and just make something simple myself until we move it down and can have a regular skirt. Nothing elaborate -- I don't have a sewing machine, but I'm very familiar with stitch witchery. :)
Of course, I don't have any sheets yet. We have our next appt on Thursday and once we get that second confirmation we're truly expecting a girl (which is goofy considering we've got girl clothes coming out the wazoo, LOL), we'll pick something up at the baby store. Still not sure what kind of bedding I want.
So. One thing down, several dozen more to go! Baby steps. LOL. :)
