Baby to Big Girl

It’s official, our baby is not a baby anymore! Last week while fighting bedtime with all her might our little bird jumped so hard that she literally blew the bottom out of her crib. As much as we didn’t feel ready for the big girl bed switch it was staring us dead in the eye. I have many little beds that I have acquired over the year leading up to this event, knowing I would have a hard time deciding. Some are a little more girly and french, some are more cottage-y and some are just unique. I think I knew which one I would use all along, but I am only getting around to painting it this week. I have a couple little extra things I will do to make it her own, but ready or not Wren will be in her first big girl bed by next week!
Here are a few rooms that had saved for inspiration when this day arrived, but I think her’s will be quite different from any of these.

  1. We had to go into the big girl bed not by choice as well. Our little one wore a sleepsak in the winter and I swore she would never get out of her crib until one night she was so mad to be in bed that she flipped over the rail! Totally freaked me out! It was an easy transition for us. I started dreaming about the antique or vintage bed I would find when she was tiny, can't wait to see what you come up with. I guess I type a lot when I don't want to clean;)


  2. i love the first one…..i love everything about the room. i think with the pieces you already have in her room, you will have an easy transition with any type of bed that you decide on…..

    but i really love the first one.

    pick the first one! :D


  3. We just ordered “big girl furniture” for our daughter, which means I'm down to about 4 more weeks before I have to have everything (color-wise) picked out for her room. There's just so many adorable options out there, it's so hard to pick just one!

    My girl just turned 3…I kept her in a crib as loooong as I possibly could get away with it!


  4. I agree with Cindy, I love the first room as well. My daughter has a wrought Iron bed which needs painting, I will definately paint it black! Enjoy doing her room! Mimi x


  5. Ugh, I'm in the same boat. My youngest is about to fly the coop if I don't get her in a big-girl room. It's so hard to leave the crib days behind. Thrilled to have found your blog…and can't wait to see what you do to her room!

    I'm your new follower…don't want to miss what you do next! :)
