It is a milestone day, when your child moves out of their crib and into a bed.  The New Year, brings so many changes and as Gjelina turns three in April outgrowing her crib is a right of passage.  She could not be more excited about a big girl bed and I look at this transformation with a bit of sadness and nostalgia. 

Although, this change brings a bit of sadness, I can’t help getting excited about the room re-fresh and I am checking all my options before I make any big decisions.   Living in a apartment keeps us close and space is a premium,  it is a bit like solving a giant puzzle every time we update a room.  Gjelina has never been a traditional girl and so going the pink route was not an option.  I decided that I wanted to play in arena of navy, white and pop yellow.  Clean, crisp and fun loving just like her bright spirit .
