A Castle in the Making

Our prior post was titled “Madelyn’s Bed.” As the photos showed, the progress we had made had created just that: a really large bunk bed frame. In the last week, that bunk bed has begun to transform into a little girl’s dream: a castle! At this point, two towers are in place, complete with windows to peek through and built in cubbies and shelves. Along the way, we got Madelyn’s new mattress, took down her crib, and officially moved her into the big bed, work in progress that it is. We both smiled when we heard our big girl happily reading aloud to herself while sitting on her bed the afternoon we set it up. More photos are to come, but here is a taste of the castle for now:

Madelyn’s bed

February 27, 2013 · filed under: Kids, Madelyn Estelle, Projects by Jill

Two years ago when we started preparing for Madelyn, Grace got her big-girl bed. And a heck of a big-girl bed it was. The only problem – we knew that one wouldn’t be enough and that Madelyn would need her own.

So about a month ago Geoff & I started designing Madelyn’s bed. We had been hearing all along that Grace wanted us to build Madelyn a castle bed, so a castle bed it is. No slide this time, but it’ll still be a really fun place to play.

Here’s a few of our favorite photos:

Wednesday night brought the first snow of the year, and it was a good one! Everybody got a snow day, even Dad, so the first thing the girls wanted to do was get their gear on and head out to play.

An hour later, noses were cold, snow pants were wet, and both girls were tuckered out and ready for their afternoon naps.
