our new family member & gracie's room redo

we have added a new member to the family. for now, his name is mr. good guy fishy. i'm sure the name is subject to change. ben is thrilled with him! the fish was kind of a reward for potty training & also because i am a pushover and was tired of him asking me for one. day 1 with mr. good guy fishie has went pretty well. ben takes his cars & other toys over to show mr. fishie & said he will take good care of him.
gracie's room has gotten a makeover. she now has a big girl bed. the crib never really worked well for us. the toddler bed has already seen more sleep than the crib.

i also scored this huge moon at a local art gallery going out of business. her room is now for sure overcrowded with stuff. but i like it. here's another favorite item in her room. a picture given to me by my great friend karen. i love this print of the children & the guardian angel. for some reason, it always reminds me of my mom. i smile everytime i walk into gracie's room. thanks, karen!
hope everyone is having a great weekend!
