Fast forward 3 months to a baby that preferred to be held and hated the swing and all three of her vibrating chairs. The pack n play had become a laundry hamper for clean clothes and the swing and chairs just took up space. Finally we put them in the garage and I relished having all my space back
When we moved into our new house when Gianna was 9 months the only baby thing remaining was her bouncer. Her toys were easily hidden and when you entered our house you couldn't tell a baby lived here.
That changed after her first birthday and got even worse this weekend when we celebrated our mock christmas. Now it looks like a toy store puked all over my dining room.
In case you didn't believe me
The dining room in this house has always been the designated play room. But when we first moved in it was more of a den since Gianna didn't have much toys. This weekend the husband spent time rearranging the furniture and removing things out of the playroom to make more space for all of the kid's toys. With him leaving soon and being gone for awhile I have designated projects around the house to keep me busy. One of those projects is making the playroom cute and accessible without making it look too kiddish. I found some idea's on pinterest I thought I'd share with you
I love all the storage this shelf unit provides
I love these canvas tents from RH baby
And I just love this cute idea from a fellow blogger Vintage Pretty http://www.vintageprettypearl.blogspot.com/2012/03/diy-reading-corner-for-toddler.html
Any other playroom/storage suggestions. As much as I love pink castles and blocks laying around my house I still want my house to look like adults live here as well
