Over two years ago I wrote a blog post on Luke’s nursery when I had just finished putting it together. Luke was still in my tummy and I could hardly think about anything other than the life growing inside of me. During the last two years I’ve spent countless hours in that room. Hours filled with rocking that tiny infant and inhaling that new baby smell. Hours of reading the same book over and over because that was his favorite book. Hours spent lying on the floor pushing cars across every possible surface. Hours of nursing and comforting him when he was sick. Hours and hours and hours of laughing, hugging, rolling and goofing around. And now it’s time. It’s time to make the transition to the “big boy room.” It’s time to pass along the crib and bring in the big boy bed. In so many ways I’m so excited to be at this next stage in life. But it also makes me slightly teary and even a tad melancholy. This is the last time I’ll have a nursery. It’s the last time that I’ll be placing my “baby” in the security of his crib. It’s the last time I’ll wind up the baby mobile. The whole “baby experience” went so fast and I can’t help but want it again. I’m so glad I have these pictures so I can remember exactly what it was like…this little haven. So many more wonderful memories will be made in this room. Luke will continue to grow in it, he’ll have adventures and dreams. It will continue to be his safe place. Until that new bed comes in though, I think I’m going to be spending every minute that I can in there! This is my sTORI being written as you read. – Love, Mommy Tori 8 Responses Dawn 07/12/2013 Such a rite of passage! I can’t wait to see what you do with it next, the nursery space was so fun.

Can’t they stay in a crib forever. Reply email@example.com 07/12/2013 Thank you! I was very pleased with how it turned out and it’s been a good room! Reply Sara Phillips 07/13/2013 Such a cute room! Are you going to redesign the whole thing or just replace the crib/mobile with a bed? Sara Phillips recently posted…Kids in the Kitchen: Making Brownies Reply firstname.lastname@example.org 07/14/2013 I’m probably not going to do an entire redesign right now. I still really like the paint and the overall theme. I’m just going to primarily do some furniture changing. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
