Macklin turned 2 months old yesterday and I can’t believe it. Time is surely flying by and pretty soon I will have to go back to work. Keeping up with the housework and other things have surprising been pretty easy, then again I’m home all day, we shall see what happens when I go back to work. We decided on the Ikea dresser shown above to be our main piece of furniture in the nursery. I didn’t want an actual changing table rather something that would grow as Macklin grew. I love that we have so many drawers and the surface is super easy to wipe down as well. One of my favorite things about this dresser is the drawer pulls which are numbered. I love them because one they are super cute and they are a great blue color for our little man. However, they serve two main purposes besides looking cute. The first being that they can be educationally for Macklin as he gets older, learning his numbers and we can organize his things based on a drawer number so he knows where to find something. I can already foresee in our future….”Mom, wear are my socks?!”……”drawer #2″. They are actually serving as that purpose right now, mostly for my husband and family members if they are helping out. If they need to get something for Macklin and it’s in the dresser I can easily point them to the correct drawer.
It’s been 2 months since I first organized the dresser and I just guessed where I would place items, not knowing if it would work for us. I pleased to say that it really is working out for us. So what’s in these drawers?
#1: DIAPERS – enough side
#2: Grooming and Health items, brushes, nail slippers, medicines, etc.
#3: Socks, mittens, hats
#5 & 6: Onesies (in current size), sleepers, swaddlers and trash bags for diaper pail.
# 7 & 8: burps cloths and all bath time towels
The last bottom drawers hold extra supplies for now like wipes and thicker blankets that we aren’t using just yet. These photos were taken about 3 months ago and the only changes is that instead of size 1 diapers in drawer #1 we have size 2’s. If I were too take a picture today they would look the same.
