The biggest news in Olivia's life right now is the transformation of her bedroom. As I have explained we are in the process of turning Olivia's bedroom into more of a "big girl" room. She has new furniture (well, my furniture from my old room as a kid), and a pretty pink color on her walls. The next step in the transformation was to have my pseudo-sister, Korrie, begin the murals that would decorate Olivia's grown-up room. Well a few weeks ago Korrie came over on a Sunday and spent the entire day making Olivia's room feel like a day in the park in Paris! Her pink walls are now decorated with a larger than life version of the Eiffel Tower and tons of beautiful flowers.
Korrie still has more that she wants to do in Livie's room. I am sure whatever she comes up with next will be as amazing as the work she has already done. I thought that nothing could top the beautiful designs she painted in Olivia's nursery at our first house. This is by far cooler than I could have ever imagined. It makes me smile knowing that Olivia has a bedroom that allows her to escape to another place anytime she wishes. I now that she will enjoy many, many years in that room. Thank you, Korrie for putting so much time and effort into this project, and you aren't even done yet! I think it is safe to say that Olivia LOVES her newly designed, "big girl" room!
So that more or less sums up what has been going on with us over the past few weeks. I hope to try and do better about posting and not let so much time go by before I share again. Olivia continues to be a very busy girl who is growing more and more each day. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally. She is so special and we are so impressed by how much she knows at such a young age. She lifts our spirits every day and makes us smile through the good and difficult times. Now if I could just keep her at this age forever!
