My little Big Boy.

Sorry for the absence of late. Things have been a little busy around here, you know, with all the eating and stuff. Honestly though, we kept ourselves pretty occupied over the holiday and managed to check a few things off of the to-do list. For instance, I finally pulled the trigger and bought Huddy his big boy bed. After an excessive amount of deliberation and the possible onset of carpal tunnel from hours of Craigslisting, I decided to let this poster bed dream die:

Instead  we went a totally different route and settled on something much more minimalist. I was inspired by this pic of Angie Hranowsky's son's room. (Angie, if you're reading, call me. I love you.)

The bed is the Ikea Malm, and at $129, the price was definitely right. Plus, it's perfect for Hud because it's low enough to the ground that he doesn't really need an annoying bed rail and Scooter's pretty psyched that he has instant access without his dog stairs (yes, you heard me). So, without further a-do, a little sneak peek:

Sorry for the terrible pic, sometimes my camera hates me, or maybe I just suck at photography. Probably both. Anyways, Hud seriously hearts him some big boy bed, and has even taken to napping again after a troubling hiatus, but we've still got all of the elements of his old nursery in place, so we will definitely continue to upgrade. Hopefully, after all is said and done, it will look a little something like this:

I'm too sleepy to source all these goodies, but if there's anything you see that you like, hit me up.


  1. Adorable! I love me some clouds in a boy's room (we have the cloud lights from Ikea). Looking forward to see more!

  2. Yay! It looks great! I'm looking forward to seeing him in it. xo
