Our littlest doll is growing up fast. Even faster than her sisters did if that’s possible. She runs around swinging her arms and shouting out commands to let everyone know that she’s just as tough and just as capable. Last week, she decided she was too big for diapers and she potty-trained herself. No joke. She just started using the potty and insisted on wearing her Yo Gabba Gabba panties. She also started refusing to go to bed in her crib. “No, no Addie’s bed, I! want! mama’s bed!” with her lower lip jutted way out and gigantic teardrops ready to fall from her eyes. And so we put her in our bed and the teardrops magically disappear and the pout turns to a smirk and we just laugh and play along, because she’s the littlest, I guess, and growing up too fast.
It’s time to start converting her room into a big girl room. But first things first. Like photographing her nursery to include pictures in her baby book. And finishing planned projects to complete the nursery decor. I thought it would be fun to share some pictures and then, hopefully, a few tutorials over the next couple weeks as I finish up some of those projects. Will that be fun?
Still love this stenciled wall, you can read more about it here. The freshly painted white ceiling makes all the difference in the room. Letter “A” and bird wall hanging are my crafty touches. I’ll show you how I made the bird art as soon as I can get the tutorial all put together.
Small bookcase (from Target) holds baskets with clothing essentials. Addie’s first birthday dress and shoes make me smile every time I walk into the room.
Tall bookcase (from Target) holds little knick knacks, special baby gifts, souveneirs, and books.
Wall art over the crib. I finished these and hung them just a couple days before Addie was born. They’re really pretty, but don’t photograph too well.
This picture really emphasizes a bare spot to the right of the crib there. I haven’t figured out what to put there yet, but I guess I better make sure it works when the bed is there. I love her crib, the Darcy crib from Pottery Barn Kids. It will become the headboard for her new bed.
so that’s it for now. I’ll keep you posted as I put together the final touches…before we start the conversion. ha.
What kind of decorating projects are you working on?
