Two Cribs....A First

My new "little boy" room!

Ben moved out of the above room, and Matthew and Patrick moved in!  I sent some pictures to Ben and he wasn't too thrilled with the new decor and the fact that his bed is gone.  Don't worry, Ben still has a place to "lay his head" so to speak.  I moved his bed into Will's room old room (which is now the school room) and so now that room is the college boy/homeschool room.  I haven't had a "little boy" room in a while, so it was fun decorating it.  The big difference in this room and my other children's rooms, is that we now have 2 cribs.  Matthew is 2 1/2 and not at all ready to get out of his crib.  My typical children were all out somewhere between 2 and 3, with no problem.  But Mattie is not there yet.  So we found a great white IKEA crib on craigslist for super cheap and now I have a room that looks almost like a twin boy room.  Patrick is sleeping in there almost the whole night now and is sleeping so much better.  I feel like a new woman getting about 6-7 hours straight of sleep a night.  We didn't even have to let him "cry it out", which I am not a big fan of anyway.  But, he just didn't smell me and I didn't hear all his little noises in the night and so we are both sleeping so much better.  Below are so recent pics of my precious little guys.

  1. What a couple of baby dolls! Oh! Both of their eyes just melt me. The room is wonderful and those happy boys are darling!

  2. What a beautiful boy room! I'm jealous!! We just switched our Rosie (7mo's) into her own room. Some nights she sleeps well (5-7hrs) and other nights she's up a lot so I hear you about getting some much needed rest.

    I figure I'll get TONS of rest some unknown time and place when I no longer have teeny weeny ones to get up with. Until then I walk about tired, blurry eyed and cranky at times from lack of sleep but oh so happy to have a wee one to care for.


  3. What a beautiful little boys room. Natasha x

  4. Beautiful children, very classy room, love the color scheme. :)


  5. I'm not a fan of "crying it out" either.
    The room looks very cute! :)

  6. I love the decor of that room! We just gave my oldest son's room to the next oldest boy. They both have facebooks and the younger one posted a picture of the room stating to everyone--look at my new room! and the older son responded --hey,it looks familiar! We had talked about doing it, but my older son did know it had been done.


Thanks so much for your comments! I love them and they keep me writing. I really do read each one.
