Maddie's Big Girl Room

Here are some very poor quality pictures of Maddie's room in our first house. I didn't take any "before" pictures in our current house but since we moved here when she was six months old we literally did the exact same thing as her room in our first house.

Just looking at these photos brings back a flood of wonderful memories of becoming a mom for the first time...there is just nothing like bringing home a new baby. As reluctant as I was to change the decor, I just felt like it really didn't suit Maddie anymore. She is such a "big girl" now, so I decided to go for it. Unfortunately, things have been kind of busy lately and I haven't had time to get new bedding or curtains, but I didn't want to leave you all hanging much longer. So this is what we have so far.

 This tea set was a Christmas gift for Maddie from Gigi and Pop.

 This pillow was an early Valentine's day gift from my mother (Gigi) to Maddie.

 This vintage high chair was another Christmas gift for Maddie from Gigi and Pop. They gave Claudia a similar one but painted pale pink to match Claudia's dresser.
 My husband "doesn't get" this mirror in her room, but I think it adds the perfect amount of warmth.
 Isn't this the prettiest tiara?

 I ended up going with a soft pink for the walls and although I was nervous about doing a pink room I am so glad I did. It is really pale and sometimes almost looks white.

This adorable keep sake box was a gift from my baby shower. It says congratulations on the arrival of your little princess. Inside I keep special cards and items that I'm sure Maddie will love to look through one day.

So that is what we have so far and Maddie loves her new room...she says she likes it much better than yellow haha.
