Two Big Girls

We have two new big girls in our house. Sierra has upgraded to a twin bed, and Maddie is now in the toddler bed.

The new bed that Jake built.

We decided that when we move, we don't want to set the crib back up - which meant that Sierra needed a new bed - so that Maddie can have the toddler bed. We have my old twin bed and it is set up in our extra bedroom, and we were originally going to use that for Sierra, but we did some measuring and realized that the frame for that bed was a little too long for the spot that I want Sierra's bed in her new room. So, Jake got started right away making Sierra a new bed. He found some old posts in his pile of wood and some extra sheeting for the headboard. I think he bought the wood he used for the trim. The sheeting was already stained the orangy color and he bought some stain for the posts and trim. He stained them the same color, but because they are different types of wood, so the colors turned out different. I love the three different colors of the bed. Sierra LOVES her new bed. I took Sierra shopping today for a new quilt to go on top. Their new room will be purple, so I tried to keep her away from the pinks. Maddie on the other hand is having a bit of a hard time adjusting to her new bed. She likes it, and she likes being a big girl, but sometimes has a hard time going to bed. She is getting a little better every day.

Sierra lovin her new bed. :)

Jake did a great job, as he always does. Your new house is going to look so great with all of that beautiful furniture Jake's made.

P.S. The girls are super cute! I especially love Maddie's pig tails.

I think it's official that we need to make a trip up for a house-warming when it's all done. I look at those girls and I think it's been too long since we've seen them. Sierra's bed looks beautiful, as does she!
