The Girls' New Room!

We're still buried under boxes, and trekking between the "old" house and the "new" house = HOME, but I did finally download pictures from the last couple of weeks.  [Ack!!!  It's been ages!!!]  These are ones I captured on Tuesday before move-in day last Thursday, when I brought the girls to see their NEW ROOM!  They were SO excited!

Their first surprise was a ribbon wreath hanging on their door...they love it!

 

And then they opened the door!

Figuring out which bed is whose...

B, trying it out...

A, getting comfy...
Two PROUD babies, I have!!!


I knew their beds seemed really high with a regular box spring and a pillow-top mattress.  After I saw them CLIMB up and JUMP down, I decided we had to somehow lower them.  The furniture store traded me "bunkie" box springs for the regular ones, and now the beds are a much more palatable height.

I have moved one of the nightstands across the room so the girls have a place for their "OK to Wake" clock.  At night, I put their pillow shams to the sides of their beds, just in case they were to roll off the bed.  To date -- KNOCK ON WOOD -- everyone has slept super soundly...more proof, I think, that this moving business is hard work!

I am SO thankful that my babies love their big-kid beds so much...they're doing a fantastic job with this transition, and that makes this [tired] mama's heart smile.

What a grown up bedroom.
They do look dead chuffed, don't they?!

Big girls! How exciting. Their pen-pals would like your new address... can you message me?

Mandy said...

Ack! What happen to your babies?! I love it though. They look so grown up and I'm glad things have gone smoothly. This is exactly how our room would look if we had done side by side, minus about a foot in width.

Wishing you a restful weekend!

Love it, love it, love it!! The room looks fantastic, and A & B look super happy! I know you're relieved to be moved (at least for the most part, right?)...it is HARD work.
