Her Room

Due to numerous requests, I'll post some photos of her room. BUT, I offer this disclaimer. The room is not yet what I want it to be. The stencil is OBVIOUSLY not finished, I have to find and hang something on the wall where her bed is. I might reduce some stuffed animals/dolls and put them in a toy box -- I'm just not SURE yet. So, it is a work in progress.

General overall photo of room.

The green and pink chest belonged to my grandmother. I refinished it for Ellie's room so she would have something of her great-grandmother's. Note her Kyrgyz pretties on the wall above.

A crown mobile.

The Princess' reading caddy for books before bedtime.

Ellie's "Ellie-phants" -- several from her ever-growing collection.

I liked this sign a lot.

Where she may (or may not) sleep. I'm not sure Josh slept in his for the first six months of his life.

So, that's where we are -- today. I won't do more until I after I return. It is sufficient for now.

I wish you the best on your trip to Ellie! I will keep you in my prayers. I know the prayers from others is what got us through some tough times when we got our son! I hope the attachment takes place quickly. Just remember some adjustments will take time. Enjoy every minute of being there, and take lots of pictures! I can't wait to see your family complete!
