All day Saturday, Shane and I cleaned out and organized the upstairs. I am embarrassed to tell you how many trash bags of stuff was thrown away from Claire's room, but let's just say things look soooooooo much better up there!! While cleaning out her closet, I found the only crate of baby clothes I had left from Claire. You see, once we found out that Owen was a boy, we went ahead and sold or gave away all of Claire's clothes except for the really nice ones or the ones I never wanted to part with. We just knew that we were done, yeah, I am kicking myself now. But the clothes in this crate, OMG, they gave my chills!!! They totally took me back to such a long time ago of Claire as a baby!!! It seemed like yesterday she wore this stuff, I was holding back tears...until the little butt comes in furiously telling us that we do not need to throw away whatever she sees in the trash bag =)...oh Claire how you have grown =)!
We finished Owen's room, his now big boy room =(. He is now sleeping through the night in his big bed and loving it!! We got Claire a new TV and gave him her old one, so he thinks he is big stuff being able to watch movies in his room =). Last night I went to check on the kids as they had gotten really quiet and was 9:30pm...well Claire was snoozing away in her bed and so sweet...Owen was jumping on his bed to the current song playing on Shrek =). Here is the big boy showing off his new room and big bed...happy as can be =)...Oscar loves the bed too - he is always up there with O - they are buds =)....
Now that we have organized the upstairs and Owen's room is done - nursery planning is underway! Claire is also getting a new big girl room. Bree is getting a gorgeous off white and gold nursery, while Claire is getting a big girl room full of jewel tones, black, and all things girly! I seriously cannot wait to complete them!! Again - if you know me well - you know I am loving this =)!
One last thing - hop on over to Lane's blog as they just announced they are expecting Baby #2!!!!!! We are so excited and we know that Claire, Owen, and Bree are just going to love their new cousin!!! Sterling is going to be a great big brother! The Brown family is just full of excitement!!!!!
Have a wonderful week!!!! I am off to a date on the couch with a sweet brown eyed beauty and Dancing with the Stars (one of her favorite shows)!
