Thank you for your prayers for my FIL. He is recovering nicely from his foot surgery. A little too nicely, though. He thinks he can be up and about right away. I'm glad we were there for two days post-op to keep an eye on him, but now he's causing mischief for my MIL. Hopefully he will heal nicely and be free of the previous pain.
We are currently working on re-doing Pearl's room. She is a climbing machine and can get out of her crib along with opening doors. So the goal is to get her room as safe as possible and also to inspire creativity.
We are taking apart the guest twin bed in order to leave the trundle portion as her bed. Low to the ground but still big enough for me to lay down for night nursing if needed.
One bookcase has already been moved to the Master bedroom for DH's books. The other bookcase is being re-organized to have the lower shelves with books, toys, dressup clothes, and other items for play. The upper shelves will contain books that I plan to take out for her but not have all the time access to.
I'd like to get a little rug to put in the middle of the room for her to play on.
We're making progress. Change is really hard for DH and sometimes I feel like I'm pulling teeth to do something new. We provide such great balance for each other, but we have to see the same vision for it to all work out:)
