I've been saying forever that I was going to try and keep Harper in a crib until she was in kindergarten. And I still halfway wish I could. She's never been a great sleeper and I'm just afraid this is going to make things worse. We are having trouble with her staying on her mat at MDO (she SURE won't take a nap there) so I'm afraid it will be the same way with a big girl bed. And locks, childproof knobs, baby gates - nothing can contain that girl - she can work them all. BUT she has been very interested in her friends' big beds and I think the time is coming.
So I'm starting to plan out her big girl room. I think for her birthday in a little over 2 months - it will be time to fix it up. I'm using Pinterest to help me plan out my ideas. Her room is chocolate brown and I don't want to paint over that so I'm just going to keep that and add in light pinks and grays. I'm hoping to make it cute and girly. Here are some of my ideas (just things for inspiration - not actual things I plan to buy):
I'm going to start looking in local shops to try and find some kind of neat antique white bed for her! I love the look of this one.
