the illustrated story:
the crib that david and delana so graciously bought for their first grandson arrived yesterday afternoon. i was first promised that it would be put together before church. no dice. then i was promised it would be put together right after church. by about 10:45 p.m., assembly had commenced. due to the inherent trickiness of putting together cribs of all types, and the fact that ours was especially tricky, the task was completed by approximately midnight. but finally, grayson reed, i've seen where you'll sleep.
serious contemplation of the directions. we had a bit of a time getting this thing together because the directions just happened to LEAVE OUT AN ENTIRE STEP of the assembly. the parts were included in the package but not pictured in the directions, and there was no mention of the step. so strange. luckily, we eventually figured it out.
