THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

A Peak at the Room...

Eli and his Grandma Peggy Bear. He just loves his new bunk bed. He's doing really well sleeping in the top bunk and can get up and down the ladder very easily and carefully. Eli has a quilt with sail boats on it.


Sophia's quilt came today and I just love it. It's from Target. It has different things embroidered all over it with different types of fabric. In the center is a princess ballerina with a toole skirt. I love the saying at the bottom of the quilt, I think it is so fitting for her... good night friends, I'll see you soon.


The shelf doesn't look level in this photo, the shelf is up higher on the wall, so I had to hold the camera above my head to get you this crooked picture. I'm not done with this shelf yet. The middle frame will have a photo of Eli and Sophia together on it. I like the doll on one side and the sailboat on the other, but I haven't finished in-between. It is a challenge to integrate a boy and girl room.
This is the top of Eli's dresser. It's not done yet either. But you can see where it is going. Eli's furniture is the stained wood. Sophia's is white. Most of Sophia's furniture is in storage since she will be sleeping in the bunk bed below Eli until we feel it is time to seperate them. When they move into seperate rooms, Eli will take the bunk bed with him and Sophia will have all white furniture.

I still have quite a bit do in their room, but I am happy with how it is coming together.

For those who have asked...yes, I got my cast off two days ago. I have a wrist brace I have to wear for 4 to 5 more weeks, but it is removable and I don't have to wear it at home. I am so glad to be rid of the cast!

I bet you had a blast doing their room. Isn't it fun picking out girly colors? Enjoy every minute of preparing for your little princess. I love the quote on the bed. So appropriate!
I know you can hardly wait to see her laying in that bed. Praying all will happen very soon.

Hi Kimberley, I am so glad that you finally got your cast off. I am sorry for not being over here for a while, I have been having some computer problems, but I will get all caught up. Have a great weekend.

Love, Kristy
