Double Trouble Room

Well this is long overdue.  Finally, pictures of the Twin's Bedroom.  This adorable mobile was the first item purchased when I started decorating the nursery.  I found it on Etsy and it's still probably my most favorite thing in their bedroom... other than Ben and Tyler of course!  

This room had a similar set up to the master bedroom pre-renovation with built in "closets" - see here.  We had them ripped out when setting up the nursery.  I also spent about $200 in paint samples before landing on "Sunrise" by Benjamin Moore.  I blame that on pregnancy brain.

Sadly, not one picture of the nursery all set up & looking pretty exists - never took one.  What?!  I'll also blame that on pregnancy brain and sleep deprivation for the last  2 1/2 years.

So last night, while enjoying some wine with Andy on the front porch after putting the boys to bed we heard the pitter patter of little feet from above (the boy's room is right above the front porch). They had crawled out of their cribs and continued to crawl out for the next 2 1/2 hours.  SO, this morning we transitioned their cribs into toddler beds.  And yes, I cried.  I can't believe my little guys are growing up so fast!

So we'll try these beds out for a little while until we pick out some real "big boy" beds.

Another sign of transitioning to a toddler room - no more diaper changing station on the dresser.

We went to this concert when I was about what felt like 100 weeks 30 weeks pregnant.  Technically, it was the boys' first concert so we had the poster framed as a memento.

And of course, there has to be a little touch of Boston in this Pasadena home.  This watercolor "Sailboats on the Charles" was the inspiration for the whole nautical them of the nursery.

Here's a glimpse of their bathroom which is right off of the bedroom.  Down the road we plan make a few small updates to this space like switch out the bath and floor tile - it's on "The List".  But for now it's perfectly fine, especially since half the bath water ends up on the floor every night during "tubby time."

The boys went down for their nap about 30 minutes ago - happy and willing to get into "bed." However, I'm hearing some major commotion up there now.  Wish me luck.  This could be a LOOOONG week.
