Big Girl Room

A few weeks ago, Chris and I started moving Gracie from her nursery into her big girl room.  It’s been a process.  We bought her a toddler bed that we initially intended to give her at Christmas, but we weren’t quite sure she was ready for that when Christmas came around.  So, we held on to the bed and thought we’d give it to her for her 2nd birthday, but then we decided that a) that would be a pretty sucky present and b) she was ready now and so…
