The nursery is my favorite room in the whole house. It is full of beautiful sentimental things. Like Calvie’s “three week feet” and the painting I purchased on study abroad for my some-day nursery. It is the space in the house that has the most knitting on display too. Cal’s Hobbes, fox blanket, rainbow blanket and sheep mobile are four of my favorite knits and I like having a space where they can be out and enjoyed.

Before we bid adieu to my favorite room in the whole house we took some pictures.

Calvin turned two last week and has been climbing out of the crib for over a year (He wears a sleep sac to prevent escapes now). Ellis has been sleeping in our little handmade toddler bed for over two years and he was starting to outgrow it. It was time for a bed shuffle.


The nursery isn’t exactly gone, but all the trappings of baby are on the way out. I was sad to see the crib go, but the toddler bed has it’s charm for sure. Cal seems to like it too. In about six months Calvin will move in with Ellis and this room will become my office. I am really looking forward to having a dedicated space, but it will be a bittersweet trade. Fortunately I can enjoy the quasi-nursery a little longer.

How is Luke’s room set up coming along? I know you were really itching for a dedicated kid zone when you lived in an apartment. Does having lots of space in the house scratch that itch? Do you keep toys in Luke’s room? A common area? Both? Any nursery progress?
