Bedrooms and Changes...

Over the last 4 or 5 days we have rearranged our house! I don't have pics yet because it still isn't exactly the way I want it. But I have worked a little everyday to help the process.

We had our guest room bed set in our sun room with a little "mini' room in the corner and then the rest of the entertainment center and games on the other half. Well, now the sun room is our playroom. There are still many decisions and moves that need made, but there is no longer a "bedroom" in there at all. It has been so nice having a majority of the toys in there! Whew...

The big queen bed that was in there is now in Jackson's room as his big boy bed! He loves it. He looks so little in it though. His twin bed was just right, and with it being on the floor (box springs) without a frame, it looked little and right. Now he has a huge queen bed with a headboard and on a frame and it is quite funny! I like his new bed set but don't love it. I'd love it if it weren't too small for the bed. I like comforters that are over sized so they completely cover the bed. It doesn't help that we don't have a bed skirt for it yet... His room is so grown up now!

Creighton's room now has the twin and box springs on the floor AND her crib in it. (as well as the big lazy boy I nurse her in, a huge armoire, and two bookshelves). So needless to say her room is PACKED to the brim with big items. She was so excited about her big girl bed as we were putting it all together. I must say it does look very big girlish and cute! However, she wants NOTHING to do with sleeping in it. She'll play in it all day long, but when it comes time for sleeping, no way! She's funny.

Up until tonight she was crawling IN her crib, but had never crawled OUT. Tonight that changed. She crawled out and opened the door. She was VERY proud of herself. So she might be sleeping in that big bed before she knows it! The funny thing is now we moved her crib against the wall with the light switch on it. She LOVES turning lights on and off, but because she is so small, she rarely gets to do this. Now that she can reach it from her crib, that is THE FIRST thing she does as soon as she wakes up. It is nice because she doesn't wake up crabby anymore. She doesn't even really cry, she just turns on her light and plays in her crib. Which is really really great!!!! However, the downside is, now she turns it on BEFORE she goes to sleep and wants to play instead of sleep. But tonight, after she crawled out I thought it was going to be a long night of getting her to stay in her room, but I told her she'd get a spanking if she came out of her room again. She never came out, but when I went to check on her, she was passed out in her crib with a purse full of books still on her shoulder with the lights ON. Oh man...the days ahead might prove to be crazy, but I bet hilarious at the same time. She keeps us on our toes that is for sure!!!

I am not sure I am ready for her to be 2 in less than a month! That is just crazy...

I just love kid stories! I know they will provide you with many more laughs (and tears) for years to come! I love rearranging the house too! BTW, You look great in your new glasses! It was fun to see you Saturday, even if only from afar. :-) Hope you have a great week!

I love your new glasses, and love, love, love the new blog look with the beautiful pictures of Creighton and Jackson!

Big kid beds are such a transition! It scares me how big my girls are! I need to rearrange my house...put girls in different rooms, paint, etc. Feeling helpful? jk.

I love re-arranging my house!!! I'm planning on taking over our "TV room" and turning it into a Library. I can't believe my husband has agreed to this. I think I might be changing it just to give me a new perspective!!! Oh well....
