The Shared Bedroom Adventures {Bunk Bed Time!}

Well, we knew the day would come when we would have to put the two monkeys back in the same room. Austin is well on his way (24 weeks down, 16 to go!) and his room is making progress. But, before I share anything about his room, let's take a look at the two big boys of the House.

A quick thank you before sharing the pics - Thanks to our friends, Kristi and Brandon for (1) telling their family we were in the market for one and (2) bringing it to the house! We got it for a great deal!! These beds are fabulous! We don't know who made them, but it is built very well! Love them!! So, thanks, guys!!

 Top: Changing Alex's toddler bed back into a crib - gotta love those convertible cribs!!
Bottom: Andrew's toddler bed (also a convertible crib) gets one last picture before heading to the attic.

At Lowe's getting a few things needed to get the bunks set up. Andrew and Alex weren't fans of the saw...

 Alex's bottom bunk done!

 Andrew's top bunk done!

Left: Andrew learning how to climb up. The first night/morning was hard. But, funny story. We got these built on a Sunday. The next day - ALL DAY - Andrew worked and worked at being not afraid to climb up. A few hours into the day, I hear him calling me. And, he's on the top and SO proud of himself for doing it! Getting down was a new issue, but, again, he worked hard at that, too. By the time Jason got home from work, Andrew got over his fear and is now quite the climber (which he always was...but a playground is clearly different from being rather close to a ceiling, I guess).

Finally, Austin's nursery is beginning to take shape. The crib is back together and all of Alex's things are all out and in the new BIG boys' room. Next on the list...paint. I swear it better stop raining... We keep having to put it off because of the rain. Quit it already! 

So, what do you think? We are going to add some things to Andrew and Alex's room to personalize it a tad more to their liking, but for now they are quite happy!
