As of this weekend, the Bean’s nursery furniture has taken up permanent residence in the guestroom and she officially has a big girl room! We’ve had the furniture for a few weeks now and thanks to G, it’s been assembled and mounted in place. Grace had a say in picking everything out and is obsessed with her super girly bedroom. To be honest, her mamas are a bit obsessed with it too!
We had the toughest time picking a bed for our gal, but once that was decided, everything else just kind of came together. We were going to get Grace a daybed with a pull-out trundle but were torn because we also really wanted to have the option to jump into bed with her for things like story time or to have room for slumber parties and such when she’s a bit older. I would have preferred a full bed but once we fell in love with the white Leirvik queen bed frame at IKEA, there was no turning back. Have you ever seen a more gorgeous and girly bed in your life? Considering Grace practically lives in princess dresses, is obsessed with everything Disney and wears a tiara anytime she’s home, it seemed like the perfect fit. We actually had to keep her from crawling under the covers of the display bed at the store because she loved it so much, lol!
My absolute favorite thing about our gal’s new digs is that it completely represents her. When Georgia was still pregnant and we were putting the finishing touches on our soon-to-be daughter’s nursery, we had all the say in what would go on the walls, on the shelves and everywhere else. Now Grace is the one who decides which stuffed animals are important enough to be on her bed. She decided what her bedding would look like and what books would be in her little library at the foot of the bed. The purses and hats hanging in the corner of her room are all her favorites and if you peek under her bed, you’ll find a chest full of princess dress, wands and fancy shoes along with her giant farm filled with animals that she loves so much. Her room no longer looks like a page out of a catalogue but rather a very loved and lived in space that is all hers. I just love that.
I can’t wait to watch our gal play with friends and cousins in her new room over the holiday season and in the years to come. I can’t wait to hear her and her buddies giggling as they jump on the bed and pull out every toy in sight and I can’t wait until she’s a big sister and can play down the hall with her little brother or sister.
