Luca has now been sleeping in his BIG BOY ROOM for almost two weeks! I'm not gonna lie, my heart broke a little knowing that my first baby was no longer going to be spending his nights snuggled safe in his crib, but thankfully Luca transitioned amazingly and my proud-mama feelings quickly overcame the sad ones. Nights have been an actual dream! He has gone down perfect almost every night and stays in his bed until morning. Although his 7am wake-ups have now turned into 5-6am wake-ups that include a 15 minute cuddle sesh with mama in bed as I try to get a few more moments of shut-eye while he lays on top of me and pulls my hair. But at least he's not coming into our room in the dead middle of the night. That was my worst fear! Naps, he has the occasional play session before I have to go back upstairs and tell him to get in his bed, or we've had the occasional nap on his rug, which doesn't look that comfy, but I don't even mind as long as he's asleep in his room and I get my 2 hours of peace for the day! All things aside, I don't have much to complain about regarding the transition. Luca Loo has been a champ!
When it came time to choosing a color theme/style for his room, I knew I wanted to do something a little out of my comfort zone. If you haven't been to my house, the majority of it is white/off-white or blue-ish-white. So I told myself it was time to try something new! I'd seen a couple insta-bloggers go dark with their bedrooms and I found some other inspo on Pinterest and that's how I came up with this green/grey color. I kept one wall white so the room didn't feel too closed in (and let's be honest, for my own sanity). Turns out, I absolutely love it and Luca's room is now one of my favorites in the house!
I really wanted this room to be a space Luca loved as a two-year old, but something that I wouldn't need to change in two years when he got a little older. So overall, we kept it pretty reserved but added elements here and there to still give it that "little boy's room" feel. He absolutely loves "choo choos" right now, so I thought a couple train pictures on the walls would be that little boost he needed to make the room feel special just for him. And he loves them! After we hung the pictures up, one morning I found him jumping on his bed chanting "I got a choo-choo picture! I got a choo-choo picture!" My mama heart pretty much burst right then and there. I'm so glad he loves it, because I know I do!
