Every so often I have an overwhelming urge to rearrange furniture, move stuff around, and refresh my surroundings. It drives Brian crazy because most of the time, I
demand sweetly ask him to help me move the furniture. Sometimes he comes home to work to a newly rearranged layout.
This time I was struck with the urge to rearrange Bunny’s room. It seems like forever ago when the room looked like this, but it was only last January!
Then right before I gave birth, the room looked so cute just like this (it was featured on Babycenter here):
Well, cue to last week when my baby was teething and screaming. I thought it would cheer her (and me!) for a change of scenery. This is when you face into the room. The cross-stitch is from my sweet cousin who lives in China. She made it and gave it to me years and years ago, so this is a fun memento:
Basically we switched the changing table and the crib. The wall in which the crib was shares the same wall as the hall bathroom sinks, toilet, and bathtub. We had to ask guests and family to avoid using that bathroom for fear that it would wake the baby.
After a little over a week of living with the layout, I think we’ll be keeping it! I miss the shelves overhanging the changing table, but that’s what the drawers are for. Plus, the room is much less cluttered feeling:
I love the reading nook. After we get Bunny changed now, we put her on the floor and ask her to pick out a book. She will grab a book, bring it to one of us on the chair, and have a grand old time reading the book together.One sweet little hanging we have in the room is a teaspoon given from Brian’s grandmother. The cool part is that she included a story of his great-great-great-great(?) grandmother. Basically the spoon dates back to the late 1800’s. I love that little part of family history. I guess the most important part is whether or not the occupant of said room likes it. I think she does. She now stands at the edge of her crib screaming at the door for one of us to come get her when she wakes up!
