Two Years of Ada (+ More Additions To Her Bedroom)

Hey! Long time no speak – did everyone have a lovely Christmas? This time of year is so busy for us; our family works in retail or is self employed, so there’s really very little time off, and not to mention my little Ada turned TWO six days before Christmas. TWO! Where has my tiny little baby gone? She is learning so much at the moment, she is constantly coming out with new words and figuring new things out. She was spoiled so much over the last couple of weeks, hopefully she won’t suddenly be expecting new presents every day now!

Just after Christmas, we made a couple changes to her toddler bedroom, starting off with a little rearrange. We’ve also converted her cot into a proper bed, and other than falling out once on the first night, she is a pro at sleeping in a bed now! She hasn’t climbed out once, she’s loves her sleep though so she’s happy to put herself down for naps and at bedtime – we’re so lucky with that.

We’ve also added some picture ledges from IKEA as book display to her room, she received some really lovely ones for her birthday and Christmas, and I thought they’d be a perfect addition to her little reading corner.

We didn’t have much of a party for Ada this year, she just had a couple trips out and visits from family instead. We put out some decorations and balloons, and had some great help from The Humble Hostess who sent out one of their party packs. It was filled with balloons, bunting, pom poms, and cute personalised items that could be used as display or stuck into sandwiches or cake!

What do you think of our changes to Ada’s bedroom?
