This room is super duper small, or I guess it is now that we have a twin bed & a crib in it. Ideally I would love to move them into the playroom once Eloise moves to a big kid bed (if we stay in this house) but it is above the garage which is really noisy & not well insulated, so we have been undecided about what to do here. But for now, this room is quite cozy, they are obsessed with sleeping in the same room & I don’t think we can ever separate them again. Until they are teenagers, I suppose. Eloise loves to touch the tree every night before bed, along with ride the piggy, put on chapstick, wear two mis-matched socks & be dropped into her crib after singing “rock-a-bye-baby.” Harper tip toes in about half an hour later than Eloise & goes to bed, although I am convinced Eloise sleeps with one eye open waiting for her.
Harper has been asking since we put up our Christmas tree if she could have some decorations in her room. She asked for a full size tree, stockings & a fireplace. Go big or go home, right? 🙂 I just love her festive little heart. So the other morning, we decided to add a little bit of Christmas cheer to the girls’ room & they were all sorts of excited about it. They picked out a tinsel tree from Target, and we used some of our old ornaments to decorate it, I will be so sad to take this down come January.
This is Eloise in all of her wild & crazy glory. We have been calling her gotta-go-joe lately because she is 90 miles an hour, bouncing off the walls at all times. And this is Claire just being completely entertained by it all, she is one lucky little sister! 😉
PS. A little disclaimer about the lights, Harper is a rule follower, we told her she cannot mess with them, plug them in, etc. and she doesn’t. We don’t leave them plugged in overnight (and we keep outlet covers in) & they are securely fastened to the back of her bed so they cannot come unraveled no matter how much she tosses and turns, although she sleeps halfway down the middle of her bed anyway. So just a little caution if anyone is going to duplicate this, just be extra safe. 🙂38
