We converted Aleck’s crib to a toddler bed when he fell out of his crib onto his head when he was around 18 months old, and he has been sleeping in his toddler bed ever since. His crib also converts to a full-size bed. It was way past time for him to move to a big boy bed, so we went shopping for mattresses on Sunday.
The mattress was delivered yesterday, so I took the toddler bed apart to make room for the full size mattress. After taking apart the toddler bed and rearranging the room, I realized that I had never taken comprehensive pictures of Aleck’s room when it was a nursery. I take pictures of everything. How could I miss taking pictures of Aleck’s nursery?
Today I spent the day moving the full size mattress set out of Aleck’s room, reassembling the crib, and taking pictures. After taking pictures, I had to disassemble the crib, again, rearrange the furniture, and move the full size bed back in the room.
I love the bed, a gift from Tom’s family. I also love the Noah’s Arc above the changing dresser. Tom’s co-worker, Cliff, is a wood worker and made the arc when he learned that the nursery would be Noah’s Arc. This will, no doubt, become a family heirloom.
It was an extremely long day, but the pictures to help me remember that stage in life are worth every minute of it.
Tomorrow, I will be taking pictures of Ella’s room. Thankfully, nothing has changed since we brought little Ella Bella home. Blog post to follow.
- Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!
