The cheery periwinkle-blue, sailor-themed
baby nursery has an antique life preserver
over the crib emblazoned with the greeting,
But the door to the room in the home of
Laci and Scott Peterson is closed shut.
This Saturday was to be Laci's shower for their
first child, a boy due Feb.10, and as usual the
spunky "little Martha Stewart" helped plan every
detail, from the bacon-and-avocado croissant
sandwiches to the Hershey kisses party
favors, with the note, "It started with a kiss."
Now, the shower is on hold as police, friends
and strangers search for the27-year-old,
eight-months-pregnant substitute teacher,
who is married to a San Diego native and
vanished without a trace Christmas Eve.

|In taped interviews with three
different reporters, Peterson
said he was so distraught about
his unborn son that he could
not venture into the nursery he
and his wife had prepared and
decorated in a nautical theme.
"That door is closed. I can't
look, you know, in that door,"
he said to a reporter. When
Detective Craig Grogan
took the stand, he pointed
out that when investigators
searched the home, the
nursery was being used
as a storage room for
chairs and linens.
