Tonight we went to Ikea and I have been officially cut off. We went to return a bed we bought Isabella as the more we looked at it the less we liked it and to pick up a few picture frames for puzzles so pieces wouldn't get lost in the move.
We came home with the frames and the bed returned. But we also came home with this (see picture sorta). Once again in the As Is section we found glorious treasures. I have wanted the Malm bed for quite some time. It's perfect because the headboard is tall, but the footboard does not come up over the mattress so Nick at 6'5" can finallly stop laying diagonally across our bed and cutting me off at the knees! We found the bed and the side tables that attach right to the headboard for, (are you ready), 50% of the total cost, and we even bought one piece new! Sweet deal. Our mattresses will fit into it, but we have to buy their slats for the base or a piece of plywood. We aren't going to set it up until we move, so hopefully we have a home to put it in then.
While we were looking at stuff Isabella was being her cute self in the cart. Oohing and aahing at all the things and suddenly shrieking in excitement for reasons we could not discern. But in a quiet moment she put her hands on my belly, (which is now big enough to look pregnant and not just fat) and said what I think she says for 'baby'. It might be dolly as it's the same thing she calls her dolly but we usually call her dolly, baby. Anyway, I didn't even dream that she would catch on that there is a baby in there, even though we tell her often. I just assumed she was too young, but it looks like she might be catching on, and that warmed my heart.
Speaking of the baby, we still need a change table to go with the crib we got last time, as if I'm cut off from As Is. Just cut off until we get settled again.
