A Big Girl Upgrade
As much as I don’t want Lettie girl to grow up she is right before my eyes…honestly if it were up to her she would stay a baby forever. We decided to upgrade her to a big girl bed when we could hear her hitting her head on the back of the crib through the night… I would have left her in her crib forever if she wouldn’t have kept bonking her head. Why is it so fast that they grow up? I swear you blink and they are all the sudden in school. When King was a baby and people would tell me “it goes so quick” I would just nod like whatever, he is so strong willed I’m just ready for the next phase. Lettie came along and I realized that it truly does go so fast. I think I didn’t fully grasp how quick it goes until my second little one when I realized everything passes whether we are ready or not.
When we started looking for her a bed I knew I wanted to order from Joss & Main because they have such great prices and really good products. We have a ton of furniture from them and have never been disappointed, I wanted to stick with what I knew would hold up, last well, and give us something she loves. I sat on the computer for days going through all the different bed options that there was, I narrowed it down to 3 beds and then let Lettie pick and let her choose the color as well. I’m in love with the bed that she picked and I love that it was her choice (guided a little bit of course).
One of King & Lettie’s favorite things is to sleep by each other so when looking for a bed that was something I really kept in mind. A trundle is the perfect situation for them because we can pull the bottom bed out the nights King wants to sleep there and tuck it away in the day where her room is smaller. It has been so fun to watch them get so excited to have weekend sleepovers, pull the trundle out to show their friends, and to create so many memories in her room. I have really realized this past year that when buying things I want to know the purpose I want behind it, the memories that I want to create, not just the look of a product which is what I really focused on before.
We are in love with the way her room came together and I can’t wait to show you a full reveal soon, but I knew so many of you had questions on her bed and how we transitioned her so I thought I would share!
