I find it incredible and fascinating to watch happen so quickly, and I feel happy and excited for her. BUT, this next stage, of moving out of her cot, caught me unawares. How happy was I to start re-arranging her room and buying new bed and bed linen, I totally didn't realise how sad I'd feel about packing away her cot. I mean, happy and excited for her, but sad for me.
Actually I had planned to keep her in her cot just whilst sleeping I mean! So here is her new big bed and newly re-arranged 'child's' room sniff sniff I didn't spend much money on her room at all really, just a bit of time and energy to find bits and bobs we liked.
I'll run through them, just so you get the idea This was the most expensive thing in her room I think! But it's something we can use forever and even sell later if we get tired of it, thats the beauty of buying vintage I'd say The small woven African baskets are from Brixton market, cushions made by me, dolls house I bought second hand from Ebay and painted it white.
Other bits we have collected from junk markets.
Books are a nightmare because the littlun loves them but likes to get ALL of them out and look at just one or two pages then toss it aside and go for the next one, I spend ages putting them all back and they always loose their covers or get ripped etc Vintage electric storm lamp we have had for a long time, from a junk market some where!
The whale mobile I made her is still there!
Tortoise by Jo and Mr. Peanut a first Valentine pressie from her Dad is by Donna Wilson. The animal cards I bought from one of my favourite shops in Winchester, The Hambledon , who have a great online shop. Her 'P' door knocker was a xmas pressie from her Dad last year.
Starting from one piece of lumber to lumber or metal figure protected with cloth and foam multi faceted. Made from pure Merino wool, it naturally repels dirt hooray! This means their feet are at the end of the crib, cot, Moses basket or pushchair carrycot.
She was having a nap in the bathroom!? I'll give it one day until it looks like the room was tipped upside down and shaken about! She loves her big bed so much! It was amazing to watch her, so grown up, and bringing everything to the bed and jumping up and down, hula hooping, and making a very small cuppa tea! The lamb blackboard is from Spitalfields market, I don't think it is very old, but I love it all the same.
I put this up after I took the other photos by the way ; zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz So that is that, she is all grown up, she gets into her bed when she wants to, and gets up if she wants.
How did you feel when you made the switch? Parents I mean, or even did you remember it yourself?
I remember trying to escape from my cot so I could sit with my brothers to watch telly. I shared a room with three older brothers, blimey, it's hard to imagine how I survived!
Maybe I would have been safer in the cot, ha ha!
