**Unrelated but Bellabliss is running its end-of-season summer sale — 65% off with code SHOPNOW. My top tip for saving money on good quality children’s clothing is buying at closeout price for the year ahead. I love these scalloped shorts for girls ($13 with code!), this bubble and these shortalls for a baby boy (micro owned both of these — adorable!), and this precious bloomer set for a baby girl.
Mini slept for a long time with a pink floral baby quilt we’d bought at Land of Nod (RIP) and then all of the sudden I noticed that her toes stuck out an inch or two beneath the bottom hem. I started layering her with blankets at bedtime, aware that the solution felt a little ragged, but wanting to make sure those little tootsies were covered. Then, recently, after one of only two nighttime accidents she’s had in her whole life, I dragged out a spare queen-sized duvet (no cover on it) in the middle of the night and she loved it and has refused to sleep with anything else since. So we have an enormous queen-sized duvet devouring her tiny toddler bed (converted from her crib), and I have been in the market for a better solution. I think for now I will buy her a twin sized duvet even though it’s technically too big for the bed and just roll it up at the foot of the bed in the morning so it’s at least a little more appropriately-sized (and can be repurposed in the future), and here are a few of my top contenders:
Though we won’t be ready for a transition to a big girl bed or room for awhile, the entire thought exercise led me wandering down “big girl room” inspiration lane, so I thought I’d share a few other finds fit for a princess:
I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED MATOUK’S PIQUE LANAI COLLECTION — WOULD BE SO CHIC IN A BIG GIRL ROOM
ADORE THIS BED REST PILLOW – I HAD ONE OF THESE GROWING UP!
FOR THE BATHROOM — THIS SCALLOPED SHOWER CURTAIN!!!!
P.P.P.S. Just put down the baby!
