Nora's room is still pretty "nursery-like". The rocking chair, changing pad/table, and diaper pail are gone, but the decor is still "baby". When I decorated this room, I had no idea who the little person was that it was being decorated for - or even if it would be a boy or girl! Now that we have had four years to get to know this beautiful, smart, creative, and exhausting child - it's time for a change. ;)
Before I dismantle the room, I thought it would be a great idea to show how Nora's room has "morphed" over the past four years. It still is nursery-like, but we made changes as necessary of course! I did a post on Nora's newborn nursery that you can see here. But this is what it looks like now!:
I must admit: as I snapped these photos, I got a little teary. This room represents who Nora was as a baby very well - but she's just not that baby anymore! She's grown so much, and changed into this beautiful wonderful little girl. Her new room WILL represent that! Change is good of course, but I'm sad that this room has to change already. Didn't I just bring her home from the hospital yesterday??!! No? . . . Hmmmmm.
Nora's birthday wish this year is a "blue room and a big girl bed". That's where we will begin!
Until next time . . .
