Big baby ( I am talking about me )

the past few days I have gotten the Urge to go look at baby stuff, you think I would have had this urge at other points in this pregnancy being at 17 wks, but really it has just been a strong urge the past few days, So I went.

First stop Hugs From Heaven...
words
can't
describe
how
incredibly
cute
that
store
is....
I could alreay tell that if we find out were going to be having a little girl next friday I would be spending a lot of time in that store, everything was so frilly and girly, i loved it... but then..
it happened... my heart melted... I was in awe, I got that "this is it feeling" as I walked forward I was staring straight at the most beautiful, clean lined, crib I had ever seen. From that moment on I was attached, I was alreayd convinced that this is what we would soon call our babys bed, you know like when you find the perfect wedding dress... but then, you see the price tag and you still think oh well that is perfectly fine yes a little pricy but its what i want, its perfect in all of its ways... but then you make the phone call to your hubby and he says... wow Chels, thats expensive...

heart
sinks
to
the
floor..
Jaw
Opens...
Fist's clench ( not really hehe )

and I start to say all the reasons as to why this one is perfect and nothing will ever be like this one and our baby wont sleep at night unless they are in this bed ( ya that one didnt go over well haha ) but you get the idea, mommy was sold... now we just had to sell daddy... and I mean come on, sales is what i do every day... this shouldnt be to hard...

So later that day, Grandma and I went out to lunch at SOho which just so happened to be in the same shopping complex as hugs from heaven so we just happened to stop in ( i needed someone else to see how beautiful this piece is and have them on my side) Grandma loved it, and so did like 5 other people in their shopping... Now all i had to do was bring daddy in..

that night Nick and I went to martins to grocery shop which also is right next door to hugs from heaven, so we stopped in and I showed him...
....
....
....
....

So chels, he says, why this one? why not something that is like four or five hundred dollars... yes it's really nice, but do we really need that... the palms started to sweat a little more... so we go to the car and he begins to tell me that it is a very nice crib he can see why i love it so much, but to him, we just dont need to spend that much on the crib...
but heres the thing.. this crib is a converter crib, which means it will be a grib then it will be a todler bed and then it even converts to a full bed which is the size of bed they will need the rest of the time they will be living with us, yes I am talking the whole 18 years of their life before they go off to college...

but he knows me, he says chels honestly, you dont think when they are like 7 and want to pick out a new bed you wont want to get them one?!?!?
and then the dresser is a combo changer which is super nice, so it is the changer table and dresser, then when they are potty trained and dont need the changer table anymore we take the changer table off and use it just as a dresser...

cant you ladies see how sold i am?!?!?!

so after we left there and we talked in the car we drove over to the Natural way baby store and looked at all they had to offer ( this was me not showing him my mind was closed and that I could still look at other cribs, and not be a baby about it) we started looking and he would say what abou thtis one and i would say, no i dont like where the brand is stamped on the crib, or no that is too "woddy" or I dont like that design, the ridges, the height, the color, its so "see through with all the lines "

he laughed at me

and then he got serious, chels sometimes there is just no half way with you. I want our baby to have nice things also, but i just dont see why this crib right here that is five hundred isnt nice to you... I am not saying that we can't get that crib you like ( my ears perk up) but I am just saying that there are going to be so many things that we will need to the baby and you will always what the best of the best, and sometimes i just want to feel like what I say to you on certain things sticks.... ( and in my head i am saying me too i dont want to feel like all the things I want you never want, I just wish you wanted it too) and then it happened i totally remembered my mother saying chelssie Elizabeth, when is enough enough... and I got that.. I could hear him saying at what point will we say no thats to much?

its just hard for me, we both make great money for our age, we are deft free, and all it would take is one check to pay for the crib and the combo dresser, and the changer matress, and crib matress... we can do this...

but thats not the idea... we budget, we dont just spend a whole check on something and call it a day. but oh how easy it would be for this..

here it is take a peak for your self... http://babyappleseed.com/davenport-crib.htm
the color shown is the one i loved, it is called espresso... isn't it just the greatest thing you have ever seen?!!?

so anywho.. after talking nick wanted me to make a list of the things I have already fallen in love with and know that I want and write it all out with the prices next to each thing that way he will know and we can budget for them.. I love my Husband, he is the greatest, I love the way he can whip me into shape and make me have the "ahh haa moment, but in such a loving way. I feel so blessed to call him my husband as I am sure our child will feel so greatful to have him as a daddy.

so stay tuned, to find out if the Urankar's get the cutes crib ever made :)

It is very beautiful Chels and I can hear the same words coming out of Marcus' mouth regarding the price and my wants vs. needs and likes vs. loves. And if Nick is anything like Marcus then I can see a great compromise coming or your dream crib and furniture. Best of luck!!

You guys need to budget quickly :) haha. The baby things add up. Set a dollar ammount then fit the pieces into your allowed ammount instead of the pieces ruining your budget. If you want that crib then where else are you going to sacrafice? Cheaper Stroller? Cheaper Bedding? I just watched Dave last night, I can't help it! haha.

I think the furniture is beautiful. I love it. It also looks great in Kaley's house. But I kinda have this mentality. It's furniture. I also always go cheaper, if you look, typically there is a cheaper look alike version out there somewhere, and typically it's already in my house : )haha. Even when I worked in a furniture store and got major discounts I still went with the nice, but lesser priced things. It's like, IF I change my mind in 5 years [which i probably will] I dont wanna have thousands and thousands of dollars wrapped up in a sofa that no longer works with my newly painted walls. I know I'm not helping. haha. I'll shut up.

Tell Nick I'm on his side.
I KID, I KID!
Bye. See you soon.
:)

Just did a baby session with all of that furniture set. Maybe the photos will give you an idea of what it would look like, or inspiration for your baby room.

Well, if you plan on having more kids, you can use the same baby furniture for the new baby and buy the older child a new bed as well! That's how we justified our baby furniture purchases....it will be used again so it's a good investment. Very cute furniture :) Hope that might help a little!
