At three years three months, Blair is finally out of her crib. And Brad said I was pushing her. (I think I did great!)
She got bedding for Christmas (her main gift from Santa), and we are using my Mema’s twin beds, one of which she slept on as long as I knew her.
I found the cutest bedding set at the Land of Nod that was affordable and matched her curtains. Blair loves blue, so the quilt is blue. She calls it her “blue bay-ed.” (The girl knows she is southern!) I used the paisley fabric of her crib bedding for blackout drapes in her nursery. It’s such a great fabric that has a lot of her favorite color, so I wanted to stick with them. I also used the pillows that matched her crib bedding.
It turned out so cute – and the best part: Blair loves it! I was so worried about messing up a good thing. We have a good sleeper, and we waited so long because we didn’t want to make any changes to that. Since she started climbing in her bed recently (but not out), I thought the time was right.
When the new baby comes, we’ll set up the other bed in the larger back bedroom and redo Blair’s current small room for the nursery.
Her first big girl bed nap. No problem in the sleep department – except the curtains. I was out doing laundry (on the porch outside her window) one day during her nap and looked up to see her perched on top of her headboard looking out the window!
What’s really funny is that she still calls us to come get her after naps and in the morning. She has yet to get out of the bed by herself! I know it won’t be long!
