I took the side off of Kate's crib 2 weeks ago. She loves it. We only had a few "incidents" with getting out of bed the first few days. I thought I'd better post a picture of this bed because now we're going to take it down and move the girls to the IKEA bunk/ loft bed that we got for their birthdays. I'm trying hard to make it girly (curtains, decoupage, etc...). It's so... boy. Jonas loves it and wishes he had a brother now so that he could have a bunk bed. oh, well!
