Happy Monday! We had a jam packed weekend filled with hiking, paddle boating, an essential oils class, pottery painting and a 4th birthday party. Needless to say I could use another day off for sure. Little A probably had the best weekend out of all of us. She hiked twice! Both hikes were 4 miles round trip! Girlfriend has the hiking gene that’s for sure.
Speaking of Little A, I want to share what I have planned for her big girl room! She is still sleeping in her crib and is totally cool with staying in it. We’ve been very fortunate that she has never tried to climb out and she actually really likes her crib. But we figured it was time we get her out of the crib and into a big girl bed.
I’ve been working on her big girl bed for what feels like a month now. It was my first big girl bed when I was a little girl, so being able to pass it down to A is really special. But baby girl didn’t want a white bed. She wanted a pink bed. So we chose a color and I’ve been painting when I have the time. I think one more coat and we’ll be ready to get her out of the crib and into her new bed!
I was surprised to find bedding that goes perfectly with the bed color at the first store I went to. I was sure that would be the hardest part. And I love the color combination that I found (it’s really similar to the photo); I needed something to balance out all the pink on the bed. We ordered new mattresses that were delivered a few weeks ago, and her existing dresser will stay, as it’s white and still in great condition. We just need to get a new nightstand, throw pillows and art for the walls. I’m still debating on if we leave her glider in her room. It won’t match the new colors in the room, but it’s where we read books at nap time and bed time every day, so I hate to get rid of it. It will probably be a game time decision.
I’m super excited to get started decorating and can’t wait to share it with you when it’s done!
What do you think? Do you like the color combination I chose? Little A said she loved it when I brought the bedding home.
Have a great week love bugs!
