Levi turns 3 this week. I just can’t believe it. He has officially started wearing clothes without the letter “t” in the size, he is potty trained, and he is definitely ready for a big boy bed. For his 3rd birthday I partnered with Living Spaces to pack away the crib and graduate him to a bonafide twin bed.
It sure was an emotional day when that crib left the house. Countless hours have been spent rocking my babies over that crib. I remember the day we first set it up and how I couldn’t believe a baby would be sleeping in it. Now, here I am…The crib is gone and Levi is sleeping in one of the most gorgeous twin beds I have ever seen.
He is practically Prince and the Pea because he has the nicest mattress ever. If you didn’t know, they have their own mattress line called Revive. I got the R2 plush mattress, and I wish I had one for my bed. I own one for my guest room, and after sleeping on it I was hooked. They also do a lot of giving back to their communities. During certain times of year they do buy 1, give 1 events where for each mattress purchased a twin mattress is donated to a foster family through Arizona Helping Hands. So cool, right?!
I kept all of the items from his nursery, and I rearranged the room to incorporate a twin bed. Instead of keeping the big mirror hanging above the bed, I moved the dresser to the opposite side of the room and put the mirror above it. This created some space to put up a wall clock and have the bookshelf be more of a focal point.
If you’re looking to design a room for your son or daughter, I have shared some tips on Living Spaces’ Behind the Design blog.
All in all I still love his room. I’ll miss the beautiful nursery that I brought him home to, but this space is just as great and one for him to grow into.
