Big Girl Bedroom

A couple of weeks ago, CTW's uncle told us he had some bedroom furniture he was getting rid of if we wanted it. A full-size bed, mattresses, dresser, and night stand. We really couldn't pass it up. We offered to pay for it, but he wouldn't let us. What an answer to prayer. We were trying to figure out how to budget in for her a new bed. The only catch was that we had to go get it then, so I was forced into moving OK into a big girl bed. We had already turned the crib into a toddler bed, but it was still the crib. She was still my little baby, right? We weren't going to put the bed together when we picked up the other furniture, but OK insisted on being in her big bed. We put it together and thought it would be a rough couple of nights. Nope, not for my little girl. We all layed down on the bed after her bath, stories, and prayers. After about 5 minutes, she looked at CTW and I and said in her sweet little girl voice, "Now get out of my bed!" I asked her if she was sure, and of course she told us she was ready to go to sleep. She slept the whole night and we haven't had a problem yet. Another example of how she is ready to grow up before I am ready for her to.

I was however, so excited to finally be able to decorate a little girl's room. We didn't find out the sex of our baby until she arrived, so her crib bedding was very neutral. We did add somethings to it to make it girlie, but not like it is now. Here are a couple pictures of the somewhat finished project. CTW gave me a very small budget, so the room is a work in progress. I am still looking for some deals on little trinkets and a piece of art for over the chest of drawers. If you guys have any cheap ideas, pass them along.
