The big-boy bed is now all here.
We had a minor-in-my-eyes-major-in-my-son's-eyes snafu when the bed frame was delivered and the mattress was too big. He was so sad, all he wanted was his bed ready for him with the sheets. So the bed frame sat in his room for a week while he slept in his crib in the middle of the rooms asking if he could sleep on "just the slats" of his bed.
The mattress arrived at 7:50am, and by 8:15am he and his sister were doing this.
The baby had to try it out as well.
Meet the lovies.
Car Pillow, Pink Baby and Boo-Boo Bunny. (so named since it has a pouch for an-already-lost ice pack in the tummy)
Banana Bear and Puppy.
Hidden behind the car pillow (from Target) is a tiny orange pillow that my sister made with my daughter with a fire truck drawn on it. It's hidden so "it won't fall off the bed".
The bedding is from Target, because he still has accidents at night and I'm not spending a fortune on sheets that will get trashed, and most likely be filled with sand. That boy brings home a playground full of sand in his shoes everyday. I digress.
The colors go really well with his new nightstand, his existing wall color, and his white Ikea expedit.
We turned his bookshelf on it's end and it fits perfectly at the end of the bed. We still have to attach it to the wall so it doesn't become a giant climbing structure, but it's on the list.
Here is how much room we have to work with, hopefully the crib will go down this week.
Ahh, he's all grown up. Notice the construction truck shirt. The boy likes to coordinate!
