I found this cute little sign at Target last week…
…and decided to carry our “home” Christmas decorating theme upstairs and into Steevenson’s room while he was at preschool today.
This one is on his “must read” list every single night lately:
The three of us had been sleeping in our bed since we brought him home (in late August), but the night before his 5th birthday (on November 23rd), he decided he wanted to sleep in his room. We were shocked! 😀 His only request? Mama or Daddy had to sleep in there with him. 🙂 Obviously we were thrilled he felt comfortable enough to give it a whirl, and we are happy to take turns sleeping on one of our couch cushions on the floor until it feels like he’s ready to try it on his own.
That photo is deceiving. Our couch cushion (which is down-filled and incredibly comfortable) is actually the exact same length and width as a twin bed, which is also what Steevenson is sleeping on. (You can see the true size better in the second photo in this post.)
So what did Steevenson think of all the Christmas touches? Well, when I told him I had “put some Christmas” in his room, he couldn’t get upstairs fast enough. And when he rounded the corner and stepped into the room he said, “Oooooh! I LOOOVE it! Tank you!!!“. (That’s how he pronounces the word “thank”.) After that he suggested we put some Christmas in the kitchen. 🙂 (#LikeMotherLikeSon) Like I said, we are more than happy to sleep on the cushion next to his bed. 😉 And when he wakes up in the morning and curls his little body around ours on that cushion? Well. You can imagine how happy we are about that too. 🙂
