It’s been a LONG time since I did an updated nursery post. Elliott is now 9 months old! Time just flies. Some of the things in his room have stayed the same and some have changed. A few of the changes-
We got rid of his rug and started using these foam floor mats from Skiphop. They are absolutely my favorite. We have them in a few different rooms in our house. We decided to get rid of his rug because he has eczema and we weren’t sure what was contributing so the thought was if there was dust or cat fur in the rug, it would be best just to take it away.
Another thing we changed were his rocker and dresser. I wanted a dresser that was wider than the one we started out with. Everything would just fall off whenever I changed him on it. Hence why there is a small shelf above the dresser. I was putting his lotions and creams there until we decided to get a longer dresser. I still keep them there but at least we have more room now!
As I just mentioned, we also changed out the rocker. I did love the previous rocker but it wasn’t all that big. Elliott’s room is definitely on the small side so we needed to keep that in mind when selecting furniture pieces but the rocker was just too small. The new rocker by DaVinci it so much deeper and it has a foot rest/recline option. We just love it!
One thing I rarely show on social media is our family room/play room mostly because it’s a big mess 99% of the time. We keep the majority of the kids toys in there. I had originally got this bookcase thinking it would fit in Elliott’s room but once it was delivered and assembled, we realized it was WAY too big and wouldn’t fit. We ended up moving it to the family room along with these cute baskets which I got to keep more toys in and I just love it. It’s such a fun and playful statement piece for a kids room or play area. It also comes in white which I didn’t notice until it was too late but the grey is also nice!
Oh! The only other thing I wanted to point out. As you may know from following me a while- I am a HUGE fan of Dyson products. From their hairdryer, to cordless vacuum, to their humidifers. I keep a humidifer in Elliott’s room and one in Emmy’s room. It gets incredibly dry here in the winter so we use it all throughout the colder months. However, you can also use them in the warmer summer months too. You just drain the water and it acts as a fan. So although it is on the pricier side, we use ours all year long so it’s worth it. for us!
I can’t wait until Elliott is old enough to start using his rocking lion. Emmy has claimed it as hers for the time being but pretty soon I am sure Elliott will be rocking like his big sis!
Thank you for following along! I hope you enjoyed Elliott’s new and improved nursery!
