We painted the walls blue b/c we knew he was a boy so why not.
Then my aunt made him this quilt with some pirate fabric so we devised a loose pirate/ocean/water theme from there. It worked out perfectly because the dude's favorite thing in the whole world is water:
Then I added some personal touches like these pictures. All of them are kindof ocean-y. The top one is of Shayne's Boat in Boston, the middle Uros Islands in Peru, and the bottom Bar Harbor, Maine. It was super fun when he reached the age that he noticed them and would point at the monster and react to it:
But my favorite thing about the room was the map. I loved the map:
But! All of this is throwback. Because shortly after I took these pictures this happened:
|BIG BOY BED!!!|
|So proud of his new bed!|
|He brought every single car, his car ramp, a pile of books, and some other nonsense into bed with him before passing out on top of the pillow. Like you do.|
But overall he handled it very well. So last weekend the BIG move happened. The one I've been anticipating/dreading since we found out about #3. Last weekend we moved the dude into his sister's room.*
|I had to dig up a picture from 2011 - right after we finished it - to actually have a good picture of her room.|
|Another 2011 pic. She still had her cast! Crazy. This corner held her play kitchen for a long time. Now the kitchen is in the basement and her brother lives here.|
I'm not going to lie it was pretty hilarious.
So. Yeah. If those are the problems we're having - that they have too much fun together - I think we're doing ok. Now to finish sorting/washing/preparing all of the baby gear and setting up a new nursery!
|Which pile of newborn clothes will I be using? Pink or Blue? Can't wait to find out!!!|
