Purple and Pink...

Just the way she wanted it to be for her when she got home!!! The big girls room all done and ready for her when she got home on the 17th of June.

View from her doorway:
*Yes, those are all her toys! So when I say she doesn't need anything, I'm being honest! As you can see, that is a 5 tier bookshelf full of games, crafts, and toys, and 2 toy bins stacked on top of one another, and the small 4 tier bin area in the bottom right corner...

The view from in front of the bookcase, facing the hallway
*notice the bookshelf crammed full of books?!

The wall next to her bed, her closet full of dresses and shoes, only a girl right?!

And not to mention the dresser and closet shrunk, both also full of clothes! She is all good in the clothes and toy department! 

She loves her new room and we are so happy to have our own place! It's new for the both of us, but are are adjusting quite well to all of this. My dad and I were able to make a few other adjustments for her before we moved in, like the shower adjustment and the smaller sink so it's easier for her to reach. Which, she can NOT get enough of washing her hands!!! I'll hear her splashing around in the sink, wanting to wash her hands every 5 minutes and brush her teeth every half hour!

I'm in the process of making light switch extenders for a couple of rooms so she can have easy access to those rooms and not walk in blindly. Oh, and all the door handles have been lowered about 6 inches from the standard height so she can reach them all with ease! 

We hope everyone is enjoying their summers and lazy weekends!


  1. What girl would not be just over the moon happy to have a room like Lilah has. Great job!

  2. Great job on her room - so cute and perfect for a little girl! :) She must have been so surprised and excited!
    That sounds very familiar . . . Simon and Jude are always wanting to wash their hands! I'm sure Lilah loves having the smaller sink and lower door knobs!
