Creating room for a baby not conceived

Hi All,

I thought I'd share with you this weekend DH and I are taking the computer and book cases out of the spare bedroom. We're creating an empty room for our future child! I'm the type that likes to be prepared and when I become pregnant I don't want to lift anything or have to deal with this mess. I just want to enjoy the empty room and dream about how it will be filled and decorated.

Actually we're buying Lana her white trundle bed. That bed will go into the empty room until Lana is old enough to move up. My niece can stay in it when she sleeps over until Lana get old enough to crawl in. She can't walk yet so it'll be awhile.

I'm excited that we're actually doing something more to be prepared. Now I'll have to use the laptop to send out messages instead of going downstairs all the time.

I know the baby will stay in our room for a few months until we want to put her/him into their own crib. Still,it's exciting getting a room ready!

Do you guys think that's crazy?

Of COURSE that's not crazy! I'm right there with you...I like to be prepared and I'm always thinking ahead to that next baby we don't have yet! I think it sounds like a great idea and you'll have so much fun going straight in there to decorate once baby is on board!
