It's Gonna Be A JUNGLE In Here!

Have I mentioned how wonderful my husband is??? I need to find a before picture, meaning BEFORE there were walls and doors to close off this bedroom. Kurt added walls, extended tile, added french doors, installed a new ceiling fan, texturized new walls, painted, pulled up old, NASTY carpet, installed the flooring, painted baseboards and put back in (which all has been a work in progress for quite a few months) and at the end of the day when I asked him at 11:00pm if he felt up to hanging the curtains, he said "Yes" with a smile on his face and a sweetness in his voice! And never showed that he was annoyed as I followed behind him and swept up the white drywall on my new floor! He is more than I deserve!!!!

Jackson's bedding is the Baby Cocoa by Lambs and Ivy. I can't wait to start hanging the wooden animals on the walls and putting the stuffed jungle animals we have purchased into his room. We are going to buy a toddler bed and then a dresser that matches Jadon's furniture. We hope he will just love it!

We're going with a jungle theme, too! It's what all the Datong boys will be sporting in their rooms this year! :)
What made you choose a toddler bed over a crib? Just wondering. I was just planning to use the crib at first. Maybe I'll ask what kind of bed David's been sleeping in at the SWI...

We have been back and forth about it. We had given our crib to my brother and his wife for their little girl. We asked a few months ago what Jackson sleeps in and they said a regular bed. Not quite sure what that means in China's standards. We may end up needing a crib but can deal with that when we get home.

I have put that on my list of questions when we meet the folks from the SWI - we can have both covered, and it will be good to know what he's used to. Thanks for bringing it up! (Stuff I never had to think of when we adopted our infants!)
