|via West Elm|
This weekend, we're picking up a crib that a friend's child has grown out of and I'm thrilled. We wont assemble it any time soon, but it feels good to have such a big item ticked off the list. Since I've returned from my holiday, I've been voraciously consuming posts like this one, of bloggers' baby essentials, care of Kath Younger.
I'd been resisting the idea of a glider, in part because the cheap and cheerful ones tend to be so darn ugly and the fancy ones, like this puppy from Anthropologie, is a little above and beyond. But a few mothers seem to insist that something to rock the baby to sleep in is a life saver. I just stumbled on this fellow from West Elm and I think it might make for a happy middle ground (plus it's something that wouldn't look absurd in our living room down the line.)
What do you think? Essential or not (think small spaces, people!)
