Big Girl Room

Are you keeping Brooke in her crib when baby comes? Or does baby get her crib?

In honor of this Formspring question I thought I would dedicate a post to Brooke's big girl room. Right now we have plans. I put it in italics because we all know how plans work when it comes to toddlers. We would like to have Brooke in a toddler bed sometime before, or soon after, the baby arrives but it is going to be up to her whether or not she is willing to make the move. Our hope is that the baby can use Brooke's crib rather than us needing to buy a new one. We already bought her new bedding set and decorations and plan on getting a white toddler bed in the near future. Here are some pictures to help you visualize.

A white toddler bed. We haven't picked an exact one out just yet but I kind of like this one!

This exact white dresser, and matching mirror, for all her clothes. Made by Sauder.

Her adorable bedding. We also have an adorable little pillow to match, as well as canvas wall art and vinyl stick ons!

And I would love to have one of these canvas book slings for her reading corner. Wood would be white instead of espresso though.

And of course her PBK Anywhere Chair as well. Hers is hot pink with her name in white lettering.

Cute! Love that bedding! I can't wait to see the finished product.

My friend just struggled moving her daughter to a big girl bed, and what finally did the trick is she bought her a special Elmo who had to stay in the bed. Her daughter loves Elmo so much, it worked the very first night! She had just turned two when they made the switch, so she was a little older, but it might be worth a shot!

SO cute! When I get married and have kids, I'm definitely recruiting your creativity when I plan the nursery :) By the way, I love reading your blog and finding out how things are going with you, Dustin and Brooke--I only wish I got to see you more often!

Good luck with the big girl bed transition!

Also, if I lived closer, I'd babysit Brooke in a heartbeat :)
