"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

A Room Of Her Own

I spent a few days last week cleaning out what will be the girls' room. Hailey and Ethan have shared since summer 2007 and Lauren has been in our room ever since she was born. It worked out great because of nursing her and I really loved having her close to me. But she has since moved from the portacrib and is now in her big crib in her room. In a few months I will move Hailey into the room with Lauren, but I'm waiting until she is sleeping more soundly at night.

This room has served as the office/sewing room/ storage room for over one year and I'm very happy to see it being used as a bedroom again! Lauren did not like the crib at first, and I felt very anxious at night after I put her down. We both are so used to being very close to each other at night. But I think we are used to it now and Lauren (and I) are sleeping great again.
Right now her room is so boring, with the exception of these butterflies. I found them at a garden shop in Texas this summer and had to buy them. I am going to use them as a "theme" for decorating. I am going to stick with pinks, purples, and yellows. Oh how I love having girls!

Right after the crib was all set up, Hailey had to jumo right in. She had fun giving Lauren the crib orientation.

I love those butterflies. They are so cute. The room is going to look great when you are done...I just know it!
I can't believe Lauren's %'s. She doesn't look that small, but then again I haven't seen her for quite some time! Either way, she's adorble!
