No more babies!

by Megan

We are officially baby-less in our house. Eli is 4-years old and Noah is 2-years old. They are BIG boys! Over Christmas the boy’s room transformed from a baby/little boy room to a BIG boy room.

We had excellent helpers. They made good use of their new book shelf...by sitting in it.

With the help of some generous family members (Poppa and Aunt Cheryl) we were able to purchase the boys some bunk beds for Christmas. They were very ready to move onto “bigger and better” things. :-) Mostly Noah, he was ready to get out of his crib.

The boys were such good helpers. They made their "bed" on the kitchen floor using their new sheets and blankets (a Christmas gift).

We took down the changing table (sold it on craigslist) and put up a new shelf. We now change Noah on the floor, which is where a lot of diaper changes took place anyway. The crib is in the basement, we are trying to sell/get rid of it as well.

Since we took out the changing table, which had all of Noah’s clothes in it, we added another dresser to the room. Each boy has their own dresser of clothes.

Fun fact: this is the 3rd generation of dresser use – my mom and her brother used them, then my sister and I used them, now the boys are using them. There are matching bed frames as well, but those are at Poppa’s house.

Noah's dresser - he can reach the bottom three drawers and pull out the bottom two drawers.

In our dilemma of what to do with such a small room and the basement room not being ready yet, we decided to get bunkbeds. We wanted twin-over-twin bunk beds, this way we can separate them later. Eli sleeps on the top bunk and Noah sleeps on the bottom bunk. Noah fell out the first day (we found him sleeping on the floor), but otherwise, no one has fallen out. We now have a bed rail on Noah’s bed, this helps to keep him in as well.

New bunk beds!

We bought these beds from Walmart for a really good price, at least we think so. Best part – the boys love them!!

Another angle of the beds.

As Noah has been outgrowing clothes, toys, etc. I’ve been passing along the items to other people with younger children. Now that the changing table and crib are gone, we are officially baby-less in our house. It’s a weird feeling, but we are enjoying the stage the boys are in right now.

We are truly blessed by our BIG boys!!
