Today, one of my favorite design bloggers - Emily A. Clark - is hosting a 'Kid's Spaces Link-up', so I thought it would be a great time to give you a glimpse into Sam's Gray and Yellow Elephant Nursery two years later...
First, see the original photos here.
Honestly, I was surprised at how very little the room has changed in two years. The biggest things involve just making the space more practical, which is good. Obviously, a toddler has different needs from an infant (like, for example, you'll notice the lack of bumper or cute bed skirt now); but, for the most part, I still really love the room and feel like it has suited Sam well over all the different stages of the past two years. I have (of course) started thinking about ways we will update/change the room to make it more "big boy" soon; but, for now, I am trying to appreciate the time I have left in this sweet room designed with love for my baby.
And, now, for a quick tour:

|The only stuffed animal Sam has ever really taken to - My bear from growing up.|
|New curtains from Windows by Melissa (that I WON)|
|The outfit Sam wore home from the hospital (left) & the outfit he wore on his first birthday (right) hanging for decoration.|
|Cardboard castle/club house in the closet. He loves it!|

There you have it!
How has your little one's space changed since he/she was born? Did you make a whole new "big kid" room or simply update the nursery?
