Ian's Updated Bedroom.

Ian's room update took a back-burner for a while because he actually wasn't using it for sleep.

In fact, once he figured out how to climb out the crib when he was younger, his sleep pattern deteriorated. He refused to take naps in and would just climb out after being placed to sleep in the evenings at bedtime. That meant no sleep for Mama.

I moved him into the guest bedroom temporarily, so he could be close by(his room is upstairs), however, even so, he still struggled with falling asleep without being soothed by me and since I was already suffering from sleep deprivation since his birth, I chose the above route that's pictured just so I could get some sleep. It started with me putting him to bed, then after he fell asleep, I would return to my own bed, but that soon took a toll and before you know it, I was falling asleep right there.

So I abandoned my bedroom. No bueno, right? The good thing is the hubby is rarely home(though when he's home, I make sure he gets lots of loving:-)), but still I know Ian needed to return to his room and we would have to undergo some type of sleep training.

I sold the crib, recycled the polkadots and the wall behind the bed was wallpapered in a subtle pattern with a blue background. It went with the existing paint color on the wall, therefore no repainting was needed.  The Queen size bed is from Ikea and so is the mattress which is super comfortable. The color scheme ended up being blue and green. It just kind of happened, plus there were already orange touches in the room.

do you remember this tape diy I did for Linda's, Calling it Home blog. They are still like new and the pop of green makes it seems like it was a part of the plan.

I am now back in my bed full time, and although he has woken up a couple nights, i comforted him, returned to my room and he went to sleep. I think we'll be o.k.
