Introducing our BIG GIRL

April 3, 2011 · filed under: Grace Evelyn, Projects by Geoff

Sometime in the last 6 weeks while we were working on her new bed, our baby girl grew up. She’s now:

  1. Potty trained
  2. Talking constantly
  3. Giving orders
  4. Sleeping in her big bed

And that leads me to the point of this.  Grace is officially moved into her new big girl room.  Aside from a few little things, her bed is officially finished.  Starting last Friday night, she began sleeping in her new bed.  She took to it with no problems and acts as though she’s been sleeping in that room for years.

Not only does she love sleeping in her big girl room, the whole family has been playing and hanging out in her room together.  We all read books in her bed, sit in the house, and slide down the slide.  The new room has become one of our favorite family hang-out spots, at least until DJ decides to show up.

Here’s a few shots of the last few things we needed to get done:

After a few more weeks of hard work, we’re almost there! Here are a few pictures of our progress. More pictures have been added to the “Grace’s New Room” post below, and they’re also available on Flickr.

Grace’s new room

With a new one on the way, preparations have begun to move Grace into her “big girl room.”  Dad decided that since Grace was going to need a new bed, he’d tackle the job of building her one.

The simple doll-house headboard idea that Jill had didn’t seem worth Geoff’s time, so he decided to go bigger and better.  What started out as an excuse to not build Grace a kitchen set has grown into a monstrous project, as the following photos will show.

Grace, however, LOVES it, so its worth all of the work.  🙂
