When we built our house 4 1/2 years ago, we planned on the nursery being on the main level (and later convert it to Seth's office). We have 2 bedrooms upstairs. Adelyn moved up there before she turned 2 and the other bedroom has been a guest room. James has been in the nursery on the main level. This "bedroom" doesn't have a closet. He's been in a toddler bed (crib converted) and is ready for his big boy room. And I'm ready for him to have a closet and more space!!
Here's what's been changing in our house lately:
|This is his reading area. We bought the race car shelf off Amazon, and I think it's pretty cool that he has a framed picture of his Daddy's race car. This is a great photo and gift from Halston Pitman, who does a lot of amazing race car photography.|
|This is the trophy on the vanity. A hilarious relative gave both my kids a go-cart trophy when they were born signifying their first win at 5 years old. "Doodler" is Seth's grandfather's nickname (and James's middle name is his first name- Mahlon)|
|Toilet is ready for potty training....if we EVER get there. The Batman poster was Seth's when he was younger.|
Messy unfinished room!
|Again, I'm not 100% done. I'd like to get some runners to go beside the bed and some wall art.|
|My plans are to make the back half of the room a work out area! We will bring up Seth's exercise bike and I'm really hoping Santa will bring me a treadmill. Eventually, I want to get some room dividers so it's hidden.|
|When my dad comes, he often has some work to do. For some reason, he can't do it with my kids running around. Now he has a little place to work. It's a great view out that window of the pasture!|
