Today really highlighted to me that time goes way too fast, and our children seem to grow up even faster. This afternoon, I ordered my son his first "Big Boy" bed. While he still co-sleeps with us at nightime, we needed somewhere for him to sleep in the daytime now that Irini has taken over his cot for her daytime sleeps. The set that I chose was the one above, called Alaska from Bedshed. I loved it because it looked old fashioned, harking back to a gentler time. I am about to start making the bedspread for it, which will be a patchwork quilt made of stripes and plaids in navy, various shades of lighter blue, some crimson, and some khaki. I think his room is going to look wonderful and masculine, but not too mature.
Stephen loves planes, so I am going to have a vintage plane theme. I just ordered some wonderful prints of vintage planes, as well as the storage tray and step below. I think these will really make his room look fantastic!
