Room for Two

Besides the closet, we made a few additions and changes to Rock’s room to make room for his little sister. My original plan for the room included much more red than we ever put in there for Rock. So, many of the new touches (like the nightlight below) bring in this color.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (27)Rock’s big boy bed was made by a friend of the family and we added the drawer pulls to match his dresser (just out of sight to the left of this picture). The “R” pillowcase is from Urban Outfitters of all places. I made both the duvet cover (still needs buttons at the top to keep the duvet in place better) and the lumbar pillow is from the upholstered rocker that used to sit in this spot. The 1 2 3 bins are from IKEA and are perfect for hiding random toys.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (29)This new print hangs on the wall above Rock’s pillow and is very securely attached to the wall because I am convinced he will try his hardest to bring it crashing onto his head.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (22)Rock book collection was rapidly outgrowing the size of his bedside bookshelf so we added this shelf from IKEA next to the door and moved his library there.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (36)Across from Rock’s bed is his old crib which will now belong to Louisa. I kept the same bumper and crib skirt that I made for Rock. The curtains are also a relatively recent addition – given to us by Juju from her stash of random treasures.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (25)Rock thought she would love this police car so he added it to her crib.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (31)The artwork above her bed is also from Urban Outfitters. What can I say? They were having a sale right when I started transforming the room and adding red girly touches! 100319 Louisa Theo Fix (32) Finally, the Wheel of Responsibility now hangs on their doorway. I bought this before Rock was born but never got around to hanging it.100319 Louisa Theo Fix (23)Bring on Baby #2! This room is ready!

I love this room! Amelie is 8.5 months old and this past week she and Judah finally started sharing a room (her crib has been in there ever since we moved to our apartment but let's just say it's taken her awhile to learn to sleep through the night consistently). It is wonderful having them together, and when they wake up in the morning they are delighted to see each other. :)
