Saturday Photo Hunt - Beautiful

My 67th
This Week's Theme:Beautiful
SPH Headquarters ~ The Other 66

Tyler has been saying for a while that he wanted a "big boy bed". He was sleeping in his crib with the safety rail removed. It was small and he wanted something bigger. He actually wanted a big bed like Mommy and Daddy. Ours is a King. Daddy wanted to get him a full, but I talked them both down to a twin. We just got the mattress, box spring, and rails. We'll look for a headboard/footboard later. The fun part was letting him choose a theme for his new big boy bed. His previous bedding was camouflage. He was torn between Spiderman and Disney's Cars. He is a huge fan of the tow truck from the movie, Mater. You can see his decision from the picture. He was super excited to have his big boy bed and some new curtains to go along with it! He thought it was the most beautiful thing ever!
Since she already had a twin sized bed, sister sweet talked her mommy and daddy into buying her a new bedding set as well. She made a beautiful choice that kept with the previous theme in her room and it looks really beautiful in her room as well.
Here is a close up of one of the butterfly embellishments on the comforter:

Very nice Miss Mom, happy kids make great adults.

He's a big boy now!? I think that's the Official Signal! It's time for the wee one to arrive because her big brother's a big boy now! I know YOU'RE ready!

I wish you all the best for a blessed arrival of the new baby!

It's always a beautiful thing when they get into a big bed. It's also a tad bit sad but that's all part of them growing up.

Tyler has a cute bed. Yohan loves Cars too.
I love Shelby's pretty bed cover. It's nice to have a cool bedroom theme that the kids enjoy.
