(First of all- I TOTALLY missed that my last post was #1,000 here at jayesel.net! *throws confetti* Here’s to 1,000 more posts of rambling nonsense!)
Speaking of milestones, we had a big one around our house this week. In three years, Maggie’s bedroom has gone from this:
and now to this:
She picked out the bedding all by herself. I tried to sway her toward a few I liked better, but the girl was set on STRIPES! and POLKA DOTS! Maggie is a kid who knows what she wants. I don’t know where she gets that trait…
(there are stripes on the sheets, you just can’t see them because I… MADE THE BED. I know. I’m so Martha!)
The crib is put back together and moved into the baby’s room, along with the two old dressers we re-purposed when I was pregnant with Maggie. They need a little bit of TLC to touch up some chipped paint, but they will do for another nursery.
I also have a list of a thousand things to get for Maggie’s room- mainly some curtains, wall decor and some shelves because those walls are BARE!- and I need to move a few things that were already hanging on the walls (those letters, for example) Once we get the baby’s room painted, I’m going to try to convince Maggie to let me tone down the pink walls in her room a little bit. It’s kind of… blinding.
I’m pretty sure Maggie likes her new bed. So far, every day since, she hasn’t wanted to get out of it in the mornings. She slept until 8am on Thursday.
I’m not complaining. !!!!
