A few days/weeks/months ago [who knows, because I’m terrible at keeping track of time], I published a post called Day in the Life of a Stay-at-Home Mom of 2. Since then, it’s been my most-viewed post. It’s made the rounds on social media, and I’ve received feedback–publicly and privately–basically saying that I don’t measure up as a mom. That I don’t clean enough. I don’t cook enough. I don’t whatever enough. Well, I’m not a super mom… and I don’t care.

Over the past week or so, we’ve been working on transitioning Blair to her nursery. After all, I worked so hard preparing her room before she arrived… might as well get some use out of it, right? When it comes to transitioning Baby to the nursery, a band-aid approach works best for our family: move all sleep to Baby’s room at the same time. Now that I’ve navigated this rite of passage with two little ones, I want to share some of my best tips on how to transition Baby to nursery!

One of my biggest struggles as a mom is how to keep kid stuff from taking over your house. As soon as they’re born [well, even before they’re born!], the items start piling up: swing, play yard, bouncy seat, baby bathtub, the list goes on.
Then, they start getting toys. Ride-on toys, big bouncy balls, trucks, cranes, and more. Pretty soon, it feels like the walls are closing in. How can you stop kid stuff from taking over your home?
When we found out Baby Blair was on the way, we knew we’d have to do some rearranging. Previously, Colton was using what is now Blair’s room as his playroom. I didn’t want Colton to feel too displaced, plus I knew we’d all be spending a lot of time in the nursery anyway. So, I began thinking of how to design a sibling-friendly nursery…

If you’ve been reading here for awhile, it’s no secret that I’ve been having a lot of fun decorating our baby girl’s nursery. I chose a monochrome color scheme and added a lot of personalized details to make the room perfect for our little lady. But, one nagging area bothering me was the flooring. We have builder basic carpet in the upstairs of our home, which doesn’t exactly scream “stylish.” We didn’t have much use for the upstairs bedrooms when we built the house 5 years ago (pre-kids!), so we went neutral. I wanted to add a fun rug to the nursery to make the floor fit in with the rest of the room’s decor. After some research on the best rugs for baby nursery, I found one that checked all my boxes!
