And I love how the light paint brings out the detailing in her headboard as well.
Furniture? Check. Mattress? Check. We've been letting Olivia peek in at her room as it progresses, and she was excited, wanting to show everyone who came to the house. She helped me make the bed, and we sat on it a little and talked about it. I love that Olivia is a good sleeper and has only climbed out of her crib twice, but I was still ready to move the crib to Olivia's new room and use a bassinett for the baby. Except the crib doesn't fit through the doorway and so presented a logistical challenge. Steve was in England last week, so I used that as a procrastination tactic despite the looming deadline since I've heard horror stories about kids adjusting to the Big Kid Bed. I was expecting her to play and talk really late at night and wander around and get up super early in the morning, which made me want to keep her in the crib as long as possible. Finally over the weekend we decided to just try it to see how it goes. In a word: anticlimactic. Olivia sleeps the same amount in the big girl bed, even at naptime (which shocks me). She's under strict orders not to get out of bed by herself, and she has a magazine on her bedside table to read when she wakes up. I fully expect this to change because it seems too good to be true, but we're enjoying it for now!
