Update: Shared Room

We moved the kids into 1 room 3 nights ago. And I must say, it hasn't been as bad as I thought. They both screamed and cried the first night, then little man only the second, and last night, neither of them cried. I think they are finally used to it. I do believe that Knox wakes Dixie up every morning with his jabbering noises, but she just lays in bed quietly.

 Nap time is still a work in progress as I have to switch rooms for Knox so that they actually sleep. He was not thrilled with the idea and so to show his disdain, he decided to eat the side of his crib like a beaver on a log. For 2 days I would go get him and the crib would be gnawed down and his face was covered in paint chips (well that's healthy). I finally ordered side rail crib covers, but in the mean time I have rigged up a dish towel with some twine over it. It seems to have done the trick.

I have to say that it is eating me alive to not have their new shared room decorated appropriately. Everything is still cowboy and Knox's name is still written on the wall in rope. I have yet to decide what I want to do as far as decor goes, but it's making me insane in the process. I did get my silhouette machine in the mail yesterday, so I am thinking that I will make some vibrant and fun vinyl art work for the walls...just have to figure out how to use the silhouette first.

I have to say that I am glad that we combined the kids when we did and that there is a free room waiting for baby when I am ready to move them into a room. Once I get some decor going on their rooms, I will post some pics.
