Tell Me Thursday - purple

My purple photo for Wordless Wednesday was of Lydia's room!  We finally (!) emptied the room of the old office stuff and got it ready for our princess to move in. Bo finished turning our back patio into an office months ago, but I was stuck for some reason on emptying out the rest of the stuff that was piled in that room.  Once I stopped calling it the "old office" and started calling it "Lydia's room" something shifted and I was able to empty it out.

We let her choose the color. She went back and forth between pink and purple, so we headed over to Lowe's and pulled out pink and purple paint chips.  I fanned a few out at a time and let her choose, and we finally narrowed it down to this one -- I believe it was called "Vinca"  It's a beautiful lavender, and I like it quite a bit!

Bo painted her room, and then spray painted the toddler bed pink, and steam cleaned the carpet. We moved in her Hasbro Playskool Dream Town Rose Petal Cottage

Moved in her old changing table (with the extended top taken off) and my old dresser (from when I was a little girl -- which needs painting, but that will have to come later)

And our little girl has her own room! She's still not sure about sleeping in it, but we know that will come with time.  Our routine for most of her life had her falling asleep in our bed, then being moved, that we're still following that. We read books and snuggle till she falls asleep, and then we move her to her bed.  The early morning hours find her in our bed again, but we know that with time she'll spend full nights in her purple room.
She's very proud of her room, and will invite her brothers in about as often as she orders them back out. She likes to tell everyone she meets that her daddy painted her room purple ;)

Did you play Wordless Wednesday?  Don't forget to follow it up today with Tell Me Thursday!
