pretty.little.things - beautiful beds

I love the little guys bedroom.
Before he arrived we painted it
we prepared it for him.
My hubby and my dad built his cot,
I made him a patchwork quilt.
We filled the room with things we thought he would need and like.

I love his cot the most.
I think if it was a little bit bigger
then I wouldn't mind going in there for a little sleep myself.

I love his cosy quilt
and get a big gush of pride when I look at it,
to think that I made it for my Dollop.
He picked the yellow taggie blanket himself
when we went to The Baby Show last year.
He loves chewing and sucking the ribbons.

This little seahorse has been such a bedtime comfort ever since we got him.
I know it's a popular addition to cots of babies up and down the country,
but there are some nights that I know for a fact 
that we would have had a screaming baby without him.
The little guy can turn him on himself now
and many mornings we can hear the tunes playing
when he is awake but not ready to wake Mummy and Daddy yet.

These are the little guys bed mates.
The white bear is called Snowbert
(which is a combination of Snowy and Gilbert the two white bears who came before him)
and he is a recent addition who was a birthday present
from my 'other family'.
The little brown bear is Beno,
he was a gift from Uncle Matt and Auntie Jen when the little guy was born.
Then there is Geoffrey the Giraffe and Malcolm the Monkey
who we bought before he was born.
I should point out that these guys always start the night like this,
where we find them in the morning is anyone's guess. 

So there you go,
that was a little tour of the beautiful baby bed in our house.
