Thomas and Friends Big Boy's Room.

I apologize for slacking off again on my blog updates. I have been busy juggling between work and family. Not to mention all the holidays and hubby and Caleb's birthdays happening on the same month which was December so yeah, I let blogging took a back seat, lol!

But I've missed it a lot. I've always liked to write nonsense, lol! So here I am, trying to be back. :) I would like to feature on my blog my 3 year old's Thomas and Friends inspired big boy's room makeover, lol!

Nothing fancy...just keeping my little avid Thomas fan happy! As soon as we realized that a crib was no longer safe for our curious monkey, we thought of transitioning him to a toddler bed. Thankfully, the crib that I've inherited from my sister for my nephew B do converts into a toddler bed and a full bed. So for a while, we had Caleb sleeping on a toddler bed. But like his momma here, he can't stay in one spot even when sleeping, lol! It kept waking him up because the bed was just too small for him, so we thought it's time to consider a big boy's bed.

On his 3rd birthday, we surprised him with a bedroom makeover. He loves trains especially Thomas and Friends so we thought it will be a great theme for this room. I bought some wall decals and wall border on Amazon and got a new comforter set and a cuddly pillow from Walmart. Voila! A Thomas-inspired bedroom for our little guy! We can tell that he was ecstatic. He can't stop pointing at all the trains and tried to name them one by one, lol! I thought this was the best gift we've given him for his birthday. Definitely, it made the transition to a big boy's room so much easier. He loves sleeping on it and since it's a full-size bed, he can wiggle and squirm all he wants, lol!

Adios to my point and shoot.

I’ve always liked taking pictures of just about anything. But of course, my favorite subject is my 3-year old. I like to capture every little bits of pieces of his day to day life no matter how mundane they are. He was doing something cute and worthy of a snapshot the other day and I reached in to my purse only to realize that I no longer have my point and shoot digi cam. It was dropped on the floor over the holidays so I now only rely on my tablet camera to take pictures. I am not so thrilled with its quality so I am really looking into getting myself a DSLR. I have been researching about it and once I’ve saved enough money to get one, I will definitely bite the bullet and take my interest in photography to the next level. I really wish though that I won’t have to wait very long before I can save up for the purchase because I just don’t want to miss a lot of fun stuff to photograph with my little boy. Easter season is fast approaching and I'm looking at tuxedo vests and ties online. I would like to get a nice set for the little guy. I’m sure he will look amazing in them so I am really hoping I’d have a camera by then so I’ll have good souvenir shots.
