The big boy room (Alfie's new room)

Our big boy is growing up. Alfie is saying "so long" to his toddler bed. I know, I know. It's long overdue. He is, afterall, 4. But "the biggest of the small ones" is very change averse.
In any event, we convinced him he needed a bigger bed, and so we went "to the mattresses." Pun intended. No really. Mattress shopping was almost all out war with him. Ok. I am exagerating, but, he wanted this one mattress because it was very "springy," and there was no changing his mind. He of course wanted the mattress that was outside of our budget, and really, not any better than the other options. My guy ;)

Luckily, he liked a mattress at another store just as much, and we successfully purchased a Full sized bed for our baby.

And so the search for fun, new bedding began... I've settled on Serena & Lily's Army Aqua quilt with the Buddy pillow. It's perfect considering he absolutely LOVES dogs, and coincidentally, my father-in-law's dog is named "Buddy." Plus, these colors go really well with the furniture set he has as well as the paint color in the room (BM Timothy Straw), which I picked with burnt orange and aqua accent colors in mind.
