No, not that kind! ;) I'm talking about the babies' beds. Right now our big guy is still in his crib, which he can climb out of, but luckily hasn't in months. Our tiny one is in the bassinet in our room. Both are from Bellini, which is one of my favorite stores! Not only is their stuff sooooo cute, but their crib is always rated #1 for safety and has never been recalled. Awesome. Their furniture can get pricey, but they have sales often, and during a great sale that they were having when I was pregnant the first time, we scored a crib, mattress, changing table/dresser and bassinet for the non-sale price of just the crib! The best part about the Bellini cribs (besides the safety rating, duh) is that they convert from crib to toddler bed to full size bed, so we will get lots of use out of it. That is the only thing that convinced hubby to let me shop there in the first place!
The crib we picked for our big boy is antique white. We got his bedding from Pottery Barn Kids, so his nursery kind of looks like this:
Actually, it looks nothing like that. We don't have those gorgeous windows or doors, they don't make the exact bedding he has anymore (these stripes, but with sailboats too), we had to take the bumpers off the crib because he used them to climb out, aaaaand this baby's room apparently contains no toys, and our son's looks like freaking Toys R Us. They are usually pretty organized, but now that I have two little ones, it isn't always perfect. At this point, I am just happy when it is clean at the beginning and end of the day. Once they are both mobile, forgetaboutit!
Anyway, back to the issue at hand- what to do about the sleeping arrangements around here. The baby is still in the bassinet, but he is getting taller by the day and probably won't fit in it much longer. I am hoping to stretch it out a few more weeks, because I love having him right next to me. It is so easy when he needs to nurse to just bring him in bed with me, but I am too afraid of rolling on top of him to sleep that way, so I like to be able to put him back in his own space. Since the bassinet's days are numbered, we originally decided that we would get Big Brother a bed and let the baby have his crib. The problem is, Big Brother LOVES his crib.... so I don't really want to take it away from him and give it to the little one. I feel like he might be jealous that the baby stole his bed! Also, I am not thrilled about the whole big boy bed thing in general. He is only 2 and although he is a good boy, I don't know if he would stay in bed just because we tell him to. And I definitely don't want him getting up in the middle of the night and having free rein of the house!
So.... what do we do? Get a second crib? Let the big one have a big boy bed (that he doesn't want but might think is cool when it gets here)? Help!!!
