The entry to Bella's room is a poufy pink flower/wreath made out of coffee filters. (Here is how I made it)
These are the 3 stuffed animals that garner the most attention. Baby David (named after Elmo's doll), Giraffe (so creative), and Mila Monkey (we named it when we gave it to her for her christening). I recently saw an absolutely hilarious video about kids naming their toys. If you have a few minutes, it's worth watching here.
B doing what she does best
A Bella's eye view from bed of her new butterfly mobile (I'll share that project soon)
Little baby feet. This is the original stamping of her feet when she was just a few hours old.
We hung the mirror that used to live above our fireplace over her dresser to give it a more grown up look. It reflects the paper butterflies over her bed and part of her new mobile.
A Bella's eye view from bed. That door is the door to her bathroom.
Now you can see the sink area of her bathroom. The bathroom is sort of a jack and jill style. It has the toilet and shower in the center room with pocket doors on either side leading to a sink area on each side.
Here is the bath area. If you walk through it leads to the classroom.
The reading/play side of the room:
Can you find the silliest toy of all?
The hot wheels wall track was an addition after this past Christmas and it's one of the only real 'toys' in her room. We usually play in the basement and reserve the bedroom for sleep or reading, but this is a fun distraction for her while I'm doing chores upstairs.
Our reading area by the window, with front facing bookshelves. The post where I made the larger stand up bookshelf is here if you're curious.
The hanging bookshelf (I talked more about that here in another post. You can see we've rearranged a bit since then too)
Some of our favorite books from the reading area:
My Name is not Isabella by Jennifer Fosberry, all about teaching little girls to be empowered and dream big. And of course, the main character has the perfect name :)
Classic Fairy Tales by Scott Gustavson; the illustrations in this book are phenomenal. I can't even explain it. We're actually putting together a puzzle now from the Jack and the Beanstalk illustration in this book.
