Piper’s Big Girl Room

Big Girl Room |

I’m finally sharing Piper’s big girl room today! We took these pictures when Fields was still in my belly, and we had the best morning playing together in her room, soaking up all of our one on one time together.

With a new baby coming, we wanted to transition her to her big girl bed before his arrival. We knew we would also be potty training her and trying to quit sucking her thumb, all while becoming a new big sister, so we wanted to have the big girl bed well out of the way. Plus, we needed the crib for his nursery. We thought about doing a toddler or even a twin bed, but since our home is only 3 bedrooms her room also serves as the guest room. Since it’s the only place for guests to stay (without blow up mattresses), we went with a double bed so we could at least sleep two people. Plus, it’s a bed she can grow into well into even her teen years. The bed is from wayfair and you can find it here.

She “helped” us move the bed in and we really tried to build up the whole process, telling her what a great helper she was. We also called it her big girl bed, and made a lot of hype around that. She was so excited to show everyone who came over her “big girl bed.” Even with her initial excitement, it took about 4 nights for her to really transition and start to feel comfortable in it. She cried the first couple of nights, and it reminded me of the early days when she was learning to self soothe in her crib…so sad!

We really tried to keep everything about her routine exactly the same, with the only change being her new bed. My mother in law got her a new pillowcase that we put on her pillow, and she was surprisingly SO excited to sleep on her pillow case. Another thing that I think could help would be letting your little one pick out their new sheets and/or comforter. Now that she’s transitioned, I think she actually sleeps so much better snuggled under the covers and with a pillow. But OK, now onto the room with a billion beautiful pictures by Jessi Nichols Photography

Fields’ Birth Story

Fields' Birth Story |

Our sweet boy made his debut on his due date, March 28th, at 2:05 am. I can’t believe he’s already been with us for 3 weeks. In many ways, I can’t believe we ever lived without him all while still learning each other and getting into a rhythm as a family of four.

I’ve always loved reading birth stories, and read oodles of them while I was pregnant. I shared Piper’s birth story here, and love having the details in writing to look back on. I’m long winded when it comes to telling the story of my babies, so I’ll try to not make it too long ;). But if you’re interested, keep reading!

What I Packed in my Hospital Bag

What I Packed In My Hospital Bag |

When I was at the hospital with Piper, I felt drastically unprepared with what I packed in my hospital bag. It probably didn’t help that I didn’t start packing it until I went in labor ;). This time around, having already experienced the post delivery hospital stay, I felt much more equipped for what you do and don’t need at the hospital, and I’m sharing them both here with you today!

Meet Fields |

Our baby boy is here, and we are all over the moon! He made his arrival on his due date, March 28th, at 2:05 am, weighing in at 8 lbs 1 oz (I’ll share his birth story soon). He surprised us with a head full of brown hair – a mama’s boy! He’s named after his dad, “Fields,” which is short for Scofield. But I have a bet going he’s gonna be a lot more like me ;).
