Two years ago we moved into our dream home, an 1850's farm house that Jeff grew up in, just down the road from my parent's house. Jeff had spent nearly a year renovating while we were expecting our first baby. Many nights we came home from work to spend a few hours here. In the summer, I would hop on the mower with my big belly bouncing along while he was ripping off siding, nailing down flooring, and replacing trim. I'll never forget the night we had our 20 week ultrasound and swung by the house to roll out underlayment on the bare roof because it was going to rain.
When it was finally time to move in, we were burnt out and sleep deprived parents of a three-month-old and I had just returned to work full time. As much as I would have loved to decorate our new home from top to bottom, we were just too short on energy and money. I've chipped away at making this our home, of course, but Carson's big boy bedroom was the first room in our house that I actually had the chance to complete from top to bottom. We took our time collecting different pieces and Jeff even made a huge toy shelf from reclaimed floorboards that were in the original attic of our house. It's a special room to us and I think it is to Carson too. He often likes to tell me that mommy made his bed (I just painted it, but thanks bud!) and daddy made his shelf.
