I’m so thrilled to share that last Thursday, our family trio became a quartet with the birth of Colette Mei Coffman! The past few days have been nothing short of blissful – the most emotional part being the moment Quincy came face to face with his little sister for the first time, a reality I’m sure he hasn’t been able to fully grasp until now. Thankfully and as expected, their introduction was faced with excitement and he’s embracing his new role as big brother with pride and delight. My husband and I have spent the last few months doing our best to emotionally and physically prepare him for this major change. One of them has been transitioning his “nursery” into a more toddler appropriate bedroom. After all, a big brother needs a big boy room! Thankfully, the timing couldn’t have been more ideal as Target just recently launched Pillowfort, a beyond adorable and delightful collection of kid’s room decor, furniture and art. With 12 whimsical themes to choose from, I had far too much fun picking out pieces that would appeal to his recent love of imaginative play. Collections like Creature Cave, with a cheeky dinosaur head, soft dinosaur sheets, and an adorable dinosaur lamp, couldn’t be more perfect for his recent obsession with all things prehistoric! I replaced a lot of the softer colored items in the room for bolder and neutral colored items, like a simple wire storage basket, grey bedside touch base lamp, and wall art with bold pops of color. Quincy’s favorite has to be the teepee, which has made an otherwise empty corner of his room a cozy little nook where we can snuggle up to a book and where he can play with his friends – real or pretend.
