Changes....

Trey and Anna Grace's room.
-We decided to rent while we live here in Ohio for Hugh's residency. I love our little home. It's quaint and cozy, but, it is rather small. The children share a room, because there are only two bedrooms. I originally decorated Trey's room in bright primary colors. When Anna Grace came, I couldn't stand the thought of trying to have two different themes or color schemes in one room. So, I kept the primary color scheme and added pink, yellow and turquoise to the mix. Here are pictures of their room......


I had blankets made for both of them, so that some day they would have a small quilt from their childhood to pass down to their children. Trey's has trains and Anna Grace's has nursery rhymes on it. They share a toy chest and a small book shelf. Also, not pictured is a three tier stand with buckets full of toys that we've since added to their room. It made sorting little toys like cars, puzzles, musical instruments, kitchen food and dishes, baby doll clothes and accessories, Mister Potato Head and Little People so much easier.

Today we made a new change to our little room. We took the railing off the front of their beds. Yeah!!!! They are now officially in their big boy and big girl beds. Trey's has been off for a while, but, with a safety rail. Now they both look the same. They are so excited. And I'm glad to say nap time today went smoothly. Double yeah!!!!

In other news, I am asking for your prayers. I spent most of yesterday in the hospital. I don't want to go into all the details but, after several tests, it seems that I have cysts on both of my ovaries that are causing me to be in a lot of pain right now. I am at home now on medication awaiting one of them to finish tearing and dissolve and heal itself. At least that is my limited understanding of what is going to happen. Anyway, it is extremely painful and I am trying not to be short with the children. It's not their fault. They're not doing anything wrong they're just being a two and three year old. But when they want to crawl all over me or jump up into my lap, it's hard not to just burst into tears right now. And at this point, if they start to cry or whine about something, I think I might just sit down and cry with them. It's just hard when you don't feel good. And it's even harder when you don't have any family around. I can't call Mimi, Nana or even one of my sweet sisters right now to help or relieve me. So I am asking for your long, long distance prayers. They are greatly needed and appreciated at this time. Love Y'all! Blessings all around!
