Kira’s Happy Birthday Bathroom

  • November 19, 2011 9:02 pm

A year ago, for Kira’s 2nd birthday, I redecorated her room in the adorable Circo Love & Nature deco from Target.

Well, I was wandering around Target’s website this afternoon and much to my happiness, I discovered they had come out with a BATHROOM version of the same decor.  I hopped right into the car and went to town and bought all the fun stuff to re-do Kira’s bathroom for her 3rd birthday.  We called it her “Happy Birthday Bathroom” and she found it pretty thrilling.  It’s a few weeks early, but who wants to sit on all these adorable decorations and not put them right up!

PS:  The artwork hanging over the toilet is my own creation!  🙂

Thank you to Auntie Mar for the plastic puppy.  You can see that she loves it!

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 10

Blessing #10: I have a child who sleeps!

Kira has always been a great sleeper. She slept through the night by 6 weeks old. She took 2 full naps a day, plus slept 10-12 hours at night until she was 2. Even now, a month away from turning 3, she still sleeps 10-11 hours every night and a good 2-3 hour nap every day. She goes to bed almost voluntarily most of the time. Her worst stalling techniques are to occasionally need to brush her teeth or use the bathroom; sometimes she needs a drink or a book for her bed. But after going through these standard items (which takes maybe 5 minutes tops), she is more than happy to stay in bed.

I don’t function on not enough sleep, so having a baby/toddler who doesn’t fight bedtime is probably one of the biggest things I am grateful for.

Because it’s one of those days that I’m having trouble finding blessings…
