What REALLY makes Leni’s room feel so cozy and home-y is her furniture!! We went back and forth for awhile on how long to leave her in her crib or to transition it to a daybed situation…but once we found Milk Street Baby her old bed didn’t even come to the new house!! It’s the Winchester in the color "Cloud". We got her dressers and bed from Kozy Kids Furniture in Raleigh, though you can now order directly from the Milk Street website. We chose to get a full-sized bed so that there is plenty of room for adults if we ever need to temporarily loan her room to guests, but also so she would be less likely to fall out of bed and it allows her to grow into it so we won’t need to re-buy a bed when she’s a teenager and beyond.
One thing that living in a small house has taught me over the last two years is that organization is vital.
I cannot emphasize this enough – our family has a lot of stuff, no matter how hard we try to keep our belongings to a minimum, and the only way we can survive living in a 1,100 square foot house is by making sure every inch of it is as organized as possible.
October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, a chance to spread awareness. During the month of October, we will celebrate people with Down syndrome and make people aware of their abilities and accomplishments. It’s not about celebrating disabilities, it’s about celebrating abilities!
