More Sneak Peak

The new project involving the blue carpet stain is Robbie's new room. He's pretty excited about it...and that's a good thing. I've been building it up for three weeks now and he has been fascinated with the progress. Every morning when he wakes up he points to the room across the hall and says "new room!" and we talk about how he is going to get a "big boy bed" and a new room.

The colors are going to be pretty bright - blue, orange and aqua. Sort of a "Finding Nemo" palette - aquarium with a dash of bright orange. Kind of like the blogger interface now that I think of it. In addition to the bright colors, I'm making up several decals in vinyl that match his paint scheme.

Today we go to pick up his dresser and this weekend we should be pulling off the masking tape...so hopefully within a week he'll be making the move.

My hope (and it may be futile) is that he'll be so in love with his new room that it will be incentive to stay in his "big boy bed". The alternative....his cage...er....crib will still be assembled across the hall in his old room.

So did you decide on that bed from Ikea that we couldn't get any of the kids off of? That was a really cool bed! You know I just can't believe that he is big enough for a big boy room! It seem like yesterday that he was born! I can't wait to see it!

Ooo I love it. How exciting. I think this is going to be a really good thing for him. Emms has done fine...hope Robbie does just as well for you!
