Little Wife On the Prairie





When you are everything to everyone, well, you had better act like you have it all together.

My talented husband strikes again!

We needed a bassinet for our new baby girl.  Our house is old and our room is small so I wanted to find something that could fit right up against the bed.  Matt, being a craftsman, decided to design one himself.  I knew it would be beautiful but I wondered if it would be what I imagined.  Well, it turned out better than I could have dreamed it to be!  In beauty and function. 
 
The arms look awkward sitting there but they are functional.  They are very sturdy and long so that we didn't need legs!  They slide under the mattress.  I think the thing would hold my 10-year-old if it was bigger!

This is where it will go when she gets here.  Right next to me but still in her own little bed!

It will be nice to just reach over and grab her in the middle of the night.

He did such a great job.  It is beautiful and I can see us passing it down to one of our babies for their babies.
There will be a mattress in the bottom.  We bought a bassinet mattress first so that we could fit the bed to the right dimensions.  I can't wait to post pictures of our baby girl sleeping in her bed!

He is a detail guy.  I love him and the thoughtful way that he cares for our family.

AWESOME! My dad made something like this many years ago for my little sisters. It was much more crud in construction though. Cheers for awesome handy hubbies!
