I'm a big kid now!
Jamie had a sweet post about her daughter soon turning sweet 16 and how bitter sweet that is. So I almost feel guilty being glad that we are passing a milestone here. Let me rephrase that. I am ecstatic! Ella has officially made the transfer into the big bed! Last night she slept with sister Eden with sister Evie in the top bunk and it could not have gone any smoother. She went right to sleep and did not wake up once. This is huge because in the year and a half since she has been home she rarely sleeps all the way through the night. I have often wondered if she would sleep better if someone was in the room with her and if last night was any indication she just may. I told Ron last night that it felt like I had gained just a bit of freedom with Ella not sleeping right in the next room, but on the other end of the house. The full nights sleep was nice too. Today she went right down for her nap, no fussing or playing around, just right to sleep. It is so nice when it works that way.
This is all in preparation for Eden to move downstairs into her own room. Ella will still share a room with Evie. My Summer projects are coming along. The downstairs bathroom is just about done. I will do the little touch up this weekend. The garden is planted and starting to produce something other than weeds. Eden's room is just about ready to paint (I love that part, so much fun). Still need to work or have the kids work on ripping out the carpet from downstairs. And finally my bathroom upstairs is just a slow project. Ron and I have really been struggling with where to quit the improvements and just finish the job! I think we are getting close. Ron will be in and out of town for the next month so hopefully before the end of August the bathroom will be ready for paint.
