Elsa and Livy's new bedroom

Elsa's bed

Livy's bed

Micah and I finally got the bedroom finished. Elsa and Livy moved downstairs this weekend. I was glad to see that the furniture all fit and that the girls actually liked it. The beds are bunkbeds but since their cousin's bunkbeds are taken down, they too wanted the same.
We had all three of them in one room upstairs, but we knew that Elsa and Livy would need to go downstairs before the baby comes. Hillie is not adjusting well. She has cried herself to sleep every night she really misses having her sisters in there with her. Pretty soon she will have another roommate.
It seems that we have had to make just as many adjustments for baby #4 as we did for Elsa. the second and third baby didn't involve too many changes, but that fourth baby sure does mix it up a bit. We cannot wait. I am actually looking forward to taking my maternity leave from work. Its as close to a vacation as I can get.

Our New Van

I never thought that I would be one of those people who owned a minivan. Well, here it is. What's even more crazy is that I didn't think that I would be so appreciative and love it so much. We knew with baby #4 on the way, there was no way around it and so now that we finally have it, I couldn't be more happier. It is so roomy! The girls love it, they are constantly wanting to sit in different seats and Elsa has now taken it upon her self to see to it that everyone is buckled in. It's really made things easier for me.
Its fun to see Micah get excited about it, he was more reluctant than me to join the minivan club, just a couple months ago he tried to sell me on the Honda Pilot. Now he is constantly telling me how much he loves having the van.
More than anything I am greatful that we don't have to think about buying or selling another car for a very long time.
