Here he is, just hanging out and waiting.
I have to come up with something to act as a mobile for Aaron. His mobile is probably his very favorite toy! He loves to bat at it, pull at it, and generally do whatever he can with it. But it only fits on a railed bed, it fastens through the rails. No openings like that on the new bed, so I got a clamp-on mobile arm and set out to create a mobile for him.
The Bed!It's here! This is the base of the bed, the part that performs all the "magic." It will raise and lower the whole bed. It will raise the head, the foot, or both head and knees at the same time. Basically, this is the brain of the whole shebang.
Here are the headboard, the footboard and the side rails. I love the light mahogany color. It's actually a pretty close match to the dresser in his room, and that was total coincidence. When we refinished that a few years ago, Aaron wasn't even on the horizon. We were just trying to redo a fairly ugly blue dresser at the time.
Now the trick will be to figure out how everything else is supposed to fit in here. Stay tuned until tomorrow. I'll have it figured out by then.
