My son is a little over 2 and despite being a total climbing monkey, he leaves all the floor length curtains in our home alone. He might pull them to the side a bit just like we do, but that's it. I think having easy moving curtains makes a difference. Try it out and if it becomes a problem when your little one is older, then just hem the long ones up. Much more budget conscious than buying all new ones if it doesn't work out. Good luck!

For a minute there I thought you had my pictures from a few months ago! I had the same exact setup and finally got smart about my kitchen cabinets. My first suggestion would be to get them out of that cabinet and put them where you see them from the top, not from the bottom/side. I cleared out two lower drawers and toddler proofed them with tabs. One holds all the bottles/sippy cups and there's a small tupperware container holding their lids/bottle nipples. The other is for plates with the plasticware in a heavy duty cup. My drawers are relatively deep so I don't have to worry about anything falling over. Sharilyn over at lovelydesign was so creative in coming up with dividers for her daughters plates and such. They're paper boxes made to fit each specific type and size of dish.
I hope that helps! Good lucj!

The Malm beds are low enough to the ground that a simple Moses basket or similar would be fine. No need to spend extra money on something just to make your little one the same 5 or so inches off the floor that you are.

I know Target also has the modular shelving in large amounts. They come disassembled in the Home Improvement section of stores. :o)

So, strange. I just found one on the craigslist in my area. If you don't mind the drive down to the D.C. area, and a little bit of work to strip it, this could be fun. Good luck!

I'd definitely go with a darker brown, like on the giraffe's spots. It'd really stand out against the lighter fabric design without being too overpowering.

I absolutely love the little alphabet balls. Anyone know where I could find them?

I absolutely love this. How long did it take to get this many letters? I've been trying to do this for quite a while, but I'm having a hard time finding 'R's. We don't have many antique shops in the area, and I can't find much online. Anyone have any suggestions? Please help!

I have a great poster with these kind of images for the alphabet. I think it's much more creative and beautiful to see the letters in things around you!

Thank you for all the great comments! I think we will probably go the way of buying a comfortable upholstered chair and then adding rocker hardware. I had no idea that was a possibility. Thanks again!
