“Happy Happy B I R T H D A Y Eva Dear. Happy days will come to you all year. If I had a wish , that wish would be …. A very Happy Birthday to you from me!”
#ExtracuteEva just turned S I X ! What is this girl all about? Bunk beds, dolls , books , her very special chalkboard wallpaper, traveling and Hello Kitty. This cutie has more than an extra chromosome, she has spunk + MOXIE ! We decided to create a room for Eva that plays to her strengths, her talents, fosters creativity and is filled with all of her favorite things. Last winter, Eva was hospitalized for a few weeks with Pneumonia. At the time, Eva was sharing a room with her little sister Elsie. It wasn’t until the two were separated (during this time) that we noticed a huge personality difference in the girls. Eva, being alone with one of us at the hospital became a little more confident, overly funny and goofy! A side to her we had never seen before. Elsie became more independent around the house, and didn’t go out of her way to get attention. Now don’t get me wrong, these two are very close as sisters, at times inseparable. It became clear that Eva ( being the older sister) needed her own space and her own room. That’s when we started planning moving Ethan out of his nursery and moving him in with Elsie, giving Eva her own room.
It took a little over a year to get Eva’s room just right. She had been in a larger toddler bed and with her growing legs, it became necessary that we look into bigger beds for Eva. This past Christmas, we visited Grandma + Grandpa in South Carolina. They had set up some old Bunk Beds in the spare room for the kids to sleep on. We were certain that Elsie would be the first one to the top, but she wanted nothing to do with the bunk beds. To our surprise, Eva climbed right on up and slept on the top bunk the whole vacation and then took it over again for Easter break. She loved being up there, and her confidence shined as she knew her usually adventurous little sister didn’t want to climb up. We decided, Birthday Bunk Beds for Eva! We not only found a new-in-the-box pink bunk bed set on Facebook Marketplace ( for under $100 ! ), but a similar mini bunk bed set for her dolls ( also found on Facebook Marketplace). These bunk beds would be the perfect birthday gift for Eva’s 6th birthday, and the final touches on her new big girl room. A special room for a very unique little girl.
