Last week we moved Marley into his own room and I'm so pleased to say it turned out to be the best decision for both of us. I am so happy to have reclaimed our bedroom again, freshened up by all the new space and sunlight. Marley loves his new room too, and surprisingly with a dream feed he will happily re-settle himself through the night. Parenting seems to be very instinctual and I'm glad we made this decision in our own time.
The best part of all though was shopping for all the bits and pieces for his room. We stuck with Rimu wood for all of his furniture, then added in some vintage kids features along the way. Some of my favourites have to be the Marvel comic posters, the Star Wars lunchbox, and the full Dr. Seuss set in large print. For more personal touches, he's been so lucky to have had some toys knitted for him by his great-grandma, along with other personalised 'Marley' items.
I'm a proud of my little boy making this big step with such self-confidence. I really couldn't wish for a more happier baby!
