Our not-so-new apartment: The Kids' Room!

It seems that nesting is never really over for me... Jeff likes to laugh at me because I am constantly arranging and rearranging furniture and the things on the walls. It's almost like a nervous tick. Anyway, I am going to start posting pictures of our now-not-so-new apartment even though it's still a work in progress (at least to me it is). :)

So, here is the kids' room. Jonas and Penny will be sharing a room, though for now, she is sleeping in her bassinet in our room until her sleep schedule settles down a bit. As you can probably tell from the pictures (and if you know me, this is not really a surprise at all), I really like color. I like all of them really. :)

Penny's corner and crib. The door is to Jeff's office/study but it's barricaded on both sides so that the kids don't have direct access to his study.

Jonas's "big boy bed"; right now we're working on getting him to stay in it when he goes to bed. We've had ups and downs but he gets it for the most part.

The corner opposite Penny's crib has a little bench that I got at the thrift store for $10 and painted and will eventually have a cushion and Jonas's instruments.

Next to the crib, my unfinished projects: still need a changing table cover, artwork that needs to be put up...

This is behind Jonas's bed. The door with the mirror is to the closet (which is actually just about the size of Jonas's old "room" at our old place).

Not pictured is the large train table Jonas got for Christmas last year. It's in the middle of the room, acting truly as the "island" of Sodor.

Next up: Our living room...

They seriously have the cutest bedroom in the WHOLE WORLD. It makes me want to go in there and lie on the floor and take a nap, looking at it all. In our homes, the kids rooms have always been the most "put together". With YOU guys though, the rest of the house is just as awesome!
