{room decor}

We got Mylie her "big girl bed" a couple weeks ago. (Big adjustments, but that is a whole other story.) I decided I wanted to update her room a little bit with some new pillows and drapes. You can find the cutest home decor fabric at Warehouse Fabrics Inc. for such great prices. I found her cute bedding surprisingly at JCPenney.com. I wanted white and was having a hard time finding an all white bedding I loved. I think the coverlet was a whopping $20. (But then they get you on the sham and bedskirt, because they cost about the same or more each!) I just love the scalloped edges.
I badly need to update the pictures in the frames in my kids' rooms. You'd think being my own photographer it wouldn't be such a chore, but I am always dreaming up the pictures I am going to get around to taking. I will do it before the baby gets here...

I was getting a little crafty. (Must be "nesting").

This is all old decor (below), minus the drapes, that I can't believe I was making or putting together 2 1/2 years ago. Although I know that Pink/blue/brown is way overdone now. Oh well...still cute.

Here are the drapes. I kind of just made them up and I think they turned out pretty cute!

Now the weirdest thing is having what we now call "The Boys' room." Pretty soon I am going to have "boys!" This is all old decor (nothing handmade here) that we got for Bennett. It was fun getting out his old crib stuff again for baby Coy. (By the way, that's the babe's name.) Bennett is so excited to have Coy share his room. He didn't mind one bit that we had to rearrange his room.

Mylie has withdrawals and still wants to sleep in her crib and I gave in on Sunday (I was desperate for her having nap). Big mistake. Now we have to constantly remind her this is "Coy's crib" (as she call's it). Sometimes she gets it.

I just had to add this little drawing Bennett did the other day all on his own. He got a piece of paper and asked for the crayons then came up to show me this. Of the purple figure he said "This is Coy when he is a little bigger." I just love this picture! Don't I have darling kids with awesome hair?

Love both rooms. So cute! Trey had the hardest time with leaving the crib as well. I thought it was really weird and that he would love being able to get in and out by himself but he wanted to be in his crib. Maybe I should have done it earlier. Crazy! Hopefully she will adjust quickly.

The rooms are super-cute! The new bedding and pillows are really fun and girly; love it.
