Show & Tell Friday -- Big Girl Bed

The time had finally come to move Missy Blue to a "big girl bed". She had still been in a crib while her baby brother shared her room in a pack 'n' play. Missy never attempted to climb out and I was quite content to let her stay confined but Baby Boy needed to move to a crib. We didn't relish the idea of buying another bed and thought to move her to a toddler size but the Lord provided a new bed for us.

My Dad is a maintenance man for an apartment complex and the perk of the job is that he can have anything that is left in vacated apartments. This time however, the model apartment furniture was in storage and ended up wet from all of the melting snow. The apartment manager didn't want it anymore and my Dad asked if we wanted a few things. We ended up with a loveseat, sofa and also a brand new twin-size bed. Perfect! We moved Missy to her new bed a few weeks ago and she was so excited. We haven't had any problems with her not staying in bed so all went well. This week the bedding I found on ebay arrived and now her bed is all set and Missy Blue is delighted.

Missy & Baby Boy's room. At some point I plan on painting "grass" on the bottom portion of the walls with a few flowers.
