Nursery Redo

Buddy Boy's recent advances in mobility merited him a promotion from the bassinette and a place in the nursery with his big brother.  Before he could move in, we had to make a few switcharoos.  We sent the guest bed off with the Salvation Army and got a toddler bed for Little Guy.
 He LOVES his big boy bed!  And has been surprisingly obedient about staying in it.
I'm so glad we went with a toddler bed over a twin bed.  Every inch counts in our little apartment, and the crib-size mattress is amply big.
Buddy Boy inherited the mini crib (another fabulous space saver!), and seems to be enjoying it, too.  Now that he has room to roll around, he's established himself as a side sleeper.
 I finally painted the letters of Buddy Boy's (looooong) name and we hung them up with his brother's.
This dresser got moved to the other side of the room and is adjacent to our makeshift storage closet (an alcove with a curtain hung across the front, in which we put metal storage shelves).  There is even a little room to play on the floor in there now, so we don't always have to play in the den!
We're really loving the new nursery.  There were a few rough nights at first, but now the boys are doing great sleeping together.  Still haven't been brave enough to attempt naps in the same room, but that will be next...

Yaaaaaay for a shared bedroom for the boys! :) WONDERFUL additions, E! And no guest would mind another place to rest their head as long as they get to hang with you and your boys!

So cute! I have loved having mine sleep in the same room, I am glad yours are doing well with it. It makes it easy to travel places too!
