Project 52 - Week 2: Made With Love

Week 2 - Made With Love:

We've been plugging away at Sydney's new big girl room! In order to make space for little sister we decided to transition Sydney into a new room (currently her playroom) and into a real bed. The room is far from finished but here is a little peek at some of the details.

Still on the to-do-list: Hang shades and curtains, make and hang wall art, hang and decorate shelves, finish closet, find a lamp, small fan, and extra video monitor. 

But the most important part...Sydney loves it! People cautioned me against doing this (moving her into both a new room and a new bed at the same time.) but I decided to give it a try anyway, and lucky for us, so far it's been great! She loves to play in her new room and the transition from the crib to the bed has been effortless! The first night she got up three or four times to collect toys, but fell asleep within a half hour (she still plays with toys or books in bed for a little while before she falls asleep) . She's been in the new room for about a week now with no problems!

I have to admit, the first night that she slept in her big girl bed I teared up. I'm so proud of her, but I'm also a little sad to see her moving on to this new grownup phase.

Hopefully she will have enough time to adjust and really see this as "her room" so that when the baby comes and claims the old one she won't be too upset.
