Wow, it has been busy, busy, busy around the Salsa house lately. But after spending days assembling new furniture, dealing with the cardboard carnage, moving old furniture, working with the Safety Team (my folks), drilling, sawing, hammering, and grunting, we are finally feeling victorious! Behold the finished nursery and brand-new playroom, complete with gates and safety precautions as far as the eye can see (click to view slideshow): Photo captions: 1.

It actually feels like a house that babies could live in now. It just warms my heart to walk through the house and picture our little girls lighting up each room. Oh, and don't tell anyone but I can't go downstairs in the morning until I sneak into the nursery and look around. Every single morning! I don't really do anything in there, just breathe it all in, look at the little clothes, run my hands along the new bookshelves, then giggle and run downstairs. It just makes me grin.
