One of these days, I will show you the glory that is the before and after shots of Baby A's nursery. (That's assuming that one of these days I finish her curtains and fill all the picture frames.)
But I finally organized her toys! They're on shelves by category--I love categories! There are more toys on shelves in her closet, so every week I rotate them to keep her interest fresh.
Everything was stuffed under the crib or spread around the floor.
|storage ottoman, Itso box bins, and Itso fabric bin: Target / wicker basket: Joann Fabrics.|
Ta da! Storage shelves that I can stack however I want! (See the giant dragon ball pit under her crib? I thought the dragon would like to feel like she/he was in a nice cave.)
|top shelf: rocking horse (vintage , her godmother's own) / lamp: Target / 20 week sonogram picture|
|shelves top to bottom: miscellaneous (Ikea shape-sorting house, plush insects, Manhattan toy); music (piano, rattles, rainmaker, puff container turned maraca); balls/bat|
Soon, I'll have to start rotating the books on her bookshelf, too. I buy books for her, but we all know I enjoy them just as much as she does.
What are your favorite toys at any given age? And how do you corral them?
