Cove’s Big Boy Bedroom

Welp, it officially happened. Cove is in his big boy bed. The transition from crib to toddler bed went so well that we thought, why not?! Until I saw it all in his room and realized my baby wasn’t a baby anymore… Tomorrow gifted us a beautiful full-size mattress and bedding to go with his full-size metal bed we purchased him, so it really made everything a little easier. I have to say, the memory form hybrid mattress is incredibly comfortable. Even Ian and I enjoy laying on it and Cove is absolutely in love with it. He actually asks…

Sweet Transitions

  The thought of Cove moving to a big boy bed is just so bittersweet to me. I mean, in some regards I was totally excited to see how cute he would be bouncing around in his big boy bed, but I also have that lost boys mentality sometimes where I want him to stay small forever. Ian reminded me this weekend that our crib, which we love and is so stinkin’ cheap, can be changed into a toddler bed.

When it comes to sleep, I simply cannot do without…

Beauty while you ZZZ

I am a big fan of sleep. Unlike most people my age, I can’t sleep for five hours and be okay. I need a good 8 hours + of sleep every night or the next day I feel useless. (Newborn stage, I was a walking ZOMBIE) I typically go to bed around ten every night and am up at seven every morning. As a lover of sleep, you can only imagine I am a also a fan of good bedding. We have layers upon layers of down, memory foam, gel and high thread counts. I know I may sound a little ridiculous, but you…

A Place to Dream

Last fall, we asked our friends to build us a bed similar to the beautiful one they built for their own room. This past weekend, we finally moved it in to our master bedroom. I couldn’t be more in love. It turned out so much better than I had even imagined. Since we were getting a new bed, we decided to upgrade from our queen to a king mattress. Although the cuddling was good for some time in our queen, I don’t think I could ever go back. Here are a few pictures of the bed after we moved it…
