As soon as Rosetta turned two, it seemed she really felt like she was a big girl and among other things, she started wanting to sleep upstairs with her sister. I had actually been considering the idea of moving her upstairs when she was a little older, but after letting her nap one day in the playroom, it was all over... she wasn't having any sleeping downstairs in her crib!
So over the past couple weeks I've gradually been moving her upstairs and this weekend I spent quite a bit of time sorting through toys, organizing and beginning to turn the playroom into a bedroom. One thing we really needed was a new dresser for Rosetta... and by "new", I should actually say "old", as we wanted an antique (smile). I found this dresser a few weeks ago in an antique store on the square and still loved it when we went back this weekend, so home it came with us. The man that owns the store guessed it to be from the 20s.
Well, needless to say, the bedroom that sits next to ours seems awfully empty now, but I have to say that it is precious to see the love our two girls have for each other and how they want to be close to one another... and it's also fun to see our upstairs have turned from a dark, dreary space to an area so sweet and cheerful.
And now I have not one, but two, rooms to re-decorate... you know I'll dislike every minute of that! (*wink* *wink*)
