Old Friends & New Digs

It has been a few weeks now and transitioning the girls into their own rooms has gone surprisingly well. They still get up before it is light outside, but they are napping and going to bed at night with only the typical 2-year-old protest. The nursery pictures can be seen here. So, we determined it was probably time to give Addy her own space. We kept Lilly in the previously shared room and added a few things so she didn't feel left out, then painted & decorated our former guest room into Addy's room. After reading KB in the City, I thought, we too, might have been too ambitious, as we were doing it in a small window of about 8 hours while the girls stayed at Grandma & Grandpas. But it turned out great and the looks on their faces were pretty priceless!

We spent a day last week, with some old friends, checking out some new exhibits at the Children's Museum. It was so fun! The girls impressed me: listening, holding hands, rarely needing the single stroller I took, and enjoying EVERYTHING. From Bob the Builder to Barbie, the Carousel to the dinosaur exhibit and, of course, the playscape area. They were soaking it all in. Enjoy the pictures!

Our baby girls are not baby girls any longer. It makes me a little sad. They look so grown up holding hands with their friends. The rooms look great. GaGa Jody said...

The rooms look perfect! So glad everything worked out and the girls are happy with their new space. I can't believe how big all the kids look in the pictures, sounds like you had a great time at the museum.
