So Jack wasn’t the only one to celebrate a big milestone last week…Charlie did also!
One of the biggest purchases on our list this year was a big boy bed for Charlie. After talking about the pros & cons of the various styles, I knew we wanted a twin size and we wanted it in white (to match our other nursery furniture since they will be sharing a room).
On a whim, on January 2nd, I started combing Craigslist and came across a used Catalina bed from the Pottery Barn kids catalog. With a mattress and underneath storage drawers, the price was perfect! Within ten hours of the first email sent, the room was in our home and assembled (Thanks, Poppy, Momma, and Daddy!) I already had a twin bedding set in a beach theme (also snagged from Pottery Barn on clearance a few years ago) and we got Charlie all set up!
He snuggled right in as if it were home all along! (We had delayed moving him because he had never climbed out, so this was perfect!) The bed is solid and all of the furniture in the room (apart from the toy chest) were from Craigslist and goes together wonderfully!
I was a bit nervous about the first night, but with the help of some kitchen chairs, it went off without a hitch!
He flopped over and went right to sleep!
A smooth transition! Since that time, the boys have napped almost every day in the afternoon in the same room which is amazing to me! Our big boys!
