My little man is going on eight months, I just lowered his crib –which actually makes me really sad. I loved seeing his smiling face, bink in his mouth, standing, holding on the edge of the crib when I would go in to get him every morning. But having a crib railing underneath his arms was just begging for him to try and climb out, so down it went.
Maybe it was the Colorado influence, but I went a little woodsy with his nursery. Wood and metal elements (which is pretty much all over my house), deer head, the most amazing crib sheet, antlers on the wall. It feels pretty boyish in there, and I love it.
When Jax was born, a flag was flown just for him on the day of his birth, and we were presented with it a few weeks later. I absolutely love it! I love the tradition behind it, and that he gets a piece of his papa’s legacy to keep forever.
I don’t know how soon the next move will be, and I have a guest bedroom to concentrate on getting in order first, but I would LOVE to see one of Livettes up on one of his walls! Right?! Maybe in the next house…
IKEA was a great resource for me, when looking for pieces for his nursery! I really have no complaints about the crib or the dresser–I still love both! And I even still like the rocking chair–it’s comfortable and does what I need it to without being to fussy. In the next house, I might not put the white shelf up in his room…it feels slightly out of place with it’s crisp whiteness, but for now, it works holding books and socks and swimming gear.
