Special Delivery

No, not the baby. It is way too early for that. I forbid it!

On Thursday our special delivery arrived to blockade our hallway.

Needless to say, it was James' job to carry all the pieces upstairs. Once he had dismantled Felicity's bed, I went up to help him. It only took us about an hour or so to put the whole thing together but the girls really seemed to love it when we showed them it all finished.

I gave Elizabeth a boost to see up top. It was easier than actually letting her get up top.

Elizabeth did try to climb the ladder. She even pulled the chair over to give herself a boost. As tall as she is, it was a bit too hard for her and she whined at us in protest.

She enjoyed being able to look out the window before we put the night stand back though. And she seemed to know the vacant bed was up for grabs. When I took her up for her nap later, she kept trying to curl up on the extra box spring. Soon, sweetie, soon.

No, I have no clue where you'd buy a log bunk bed in Maryland. But, fortunately, they are made in Minnesota. Since there was no place that sold it near us, we were able to buy straight from the manufacturer and had it shipped right to us. I've bookmarked their website for future reference. 

I couldn't be happier with the bed. The wood, and yes it is solid wood, is absolutely beautiful with a "medium" honey stain. It has a warrantee for life. Now I just have to figure out how to make the beds while this pregnant. Hmmmm. Maybe some bed-making lessons for little girls will soon be in order. :)


  1. Very cute! So far Ben hasn't figured out the bunk bed ladder. I put him up on the top bunk occasionally and he loves romping about up there.

  2. Hopefully it will be a little longer before he figures out how to get up top by himself. I'm sure Elizabeth would like it up top, but I don't trust her that much yet. Cecilia and Felicity are still adjusting to not standing in their beds. I tell everyone that Elizabeth is part monkey because she climbs almost anything. She pulled out a night stand drawer to use as step to climb onto my dad's bed. I won't put anything past her, so I'm hoping it will be a little while before she figures out how to climb the ladder.

  3. Wow! What a gorgeous bed! That wood is beautiful! :)
