When we created the nursery back in early 2005, we hoped that it would be a room our little girl loved for many years to come. Well, it's been many years and, thankfully, she still loves it. And I think I love it even more.
We designed the room with the thought in mind that we would eventually have two daughters who would always want to share a room but when Maddy came home a year after Gwen, she immediately let us know that she preferred her own space (see her room, below). I still hold to the hope that she'll want to move back into the Fancy Frog room again someday.
With so many of my most precious Bloggerville friends anticipating a referral soon and putting the finishing touches on their baby's nursery, I ached to share ours one more time.
After all these years, the froggy nursery is still the one place in our beautiful house that I feel the most serene and at peace. If you've followed our journey long enough, you know how long we struggled to bring a baby into this room so you know why this room will always mean so much to me. I sit in there each night with Gwen and we snuggle in the sage green slip-covered La-z-boy rocker/recliner and talk about her day and those minutes are so special to me. I also love the time I spend snuggling with Maddy on her big furry white rug but I know that my children's rooms belong to them and not to me and I can only hope quietly that they'll never want to change them and replace the murals I painted and all the other loving details with cheesy stick-ons of the Jonas Brothers or Hannah Montana. Oh how I'd miss that precious froggy border!
