In true Westfall form we started moving right after lunch. We took apart the bunk beds and moved all of Dawson's stuff into Aubrey's room and moved Aubrey's crib and everything in with Emma. I spent the afternoon organizing and rearranging the two rooms. Later this week we will paint Dawson's room (he doesn't really care for the pink and green walls) and decorate with Star Wars. I will be sure to post pictures when it is all done. I'll admit that I was a little nervous about moving the girls together already. It had always been the plan that they would share a room but I didn't think that we would do it this early. I was worried that they might wake each other up, Aubrey still wakes in the night and Emma is such an early riser. So far so good though. Aubrey actually seems pretty excited about the change too. She loves playing with Emma in her new room and I think that she likes that there is someone there with her in the morning. I was laying in bed this morning and I could hearAubrey talking. Then, I heard Emma talking to her and soon you could hear giggling and laughing. As I crept in the room I saw that Emma had climbed in Aubrey's crib and was laying right next to her. They were just laughing and talking to each other in bed. I wish that I would have had my camera. It was a precious moment. I look forward to hearing lots more giggles come from that room!
I chuckle as I tell you how much Dawson loves being in his own room. He spent all morning in his room playing with his Lego's and kenex sets which he often didn't play with. I think that he is relishing the fact that he can create something and nobody is there to break it. I am happy that we were able to fulfill a need for him. Although, it does make me a little sad when I look in his room and see that it is a boys room and not a toddler room. At least he still wants me to pray with him at night, turn on his music and say his bed night saying, "Night, night. Sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite. You better sleep really tight because they really do bite!"
