I can not count on two hands the number of projects we have been working on over here as we are getting our home ready and organized for Baby #2! I have been on a cleaning and organizing rampage (just ask my husband), and I am so glad that projects are finally on their way to being finished!
One of the most exciting things we have been working on is turning Maddy’s nursery into a “big girl” room. Baby Boy is going to be using Madalyn’s crib and dresser, so we purchased new furniture for Madalyn. It has been so fun to see how she is transitioning from being the baby, to being Miss Older Sister. She has dealt SO well with the change, it amazes me! For a girl who really loves her routine, she has taken everything with stride and we are so proud of her.
We were preparing ourselves for the worst when we moved her into her toddler bed the first evening. We tucked her in and left the room and then peeled our eyes to her video monitor! She was adventurous and wandered out down the hallway, but I walked her back to her room explaining that she needs to stay in her bed…and that was that! In fact, she rarely even gets out of her bed before we open her door to come and get her after nap and sleep. I am so thankful, because I am LOVING sleep right now and was dreading the idea of losing sleep while she adjusted. Hooray!
I took some pictures of her furniture and room for you all, just for fun! There isn’t really anything elaborate going on in terms of organizing here since I spent a good amount of time doing that not that long ago (check out that post here if you are interested!).

And have I mentioned that Maddy has the best view in the house? Look at the beautiful snow blowing around right outside her window!
As we say goodbye to Madalyn’s nursery, I can’t help but be a bit emotional (let’s blame some of that on these pregnancy hormones). But, we are so blessed to be welcoming another little babe into our home and I also can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of thankfulness. God is so good!
