A room fit for a Big Sister and a LIttle Sister!

It was really important to me to redo Alyssa's room while I was making the bedding for the nursery. I didn't want to make my Big Girl feel left out that mama was busy doing stuff for the baby and not her. It was a lot of work doing both rooms and at times I felt like I was a little nuts for deciding to take both on, but I'm glad I did. I get a lot of pride looking at both girls rooms and knowing that I put all that work into making their little spaces in our home their very own. Here is my sweet Peanut Butter's "Big Sister" room done up in her favorite color PINK! I got her quilt back last week from the long arm quilter and I finished binding it this morning. My friend Benita painted the letters for both Alyssa and Amelia's rooms, and she did such a fantastic job! I still need to finish up the pillow sham for Alyssa's bed, but since Amelia is putting in an appearance any day now I don't think that I am going to get it finished quite yet. It'll just have to be on my project to do list. She has pretty pink curtains and a fluffy new rug and she thinks her room is "really amazing."
This is Amelia's "Little Sister" room. I think it looks pretty good as well. My husband thinks it's funny that we have one room that is so very Pink and the other is so Blue! I like blue and so I figured it's my one and only chance to have a pretty blue nursery. Everyone thought it would look like a boys room, but I don't think that it does. I'm just looking forward to getting my new little girl in her room and us all settling into a family of 4! I makes my heart so happy to be able to do this for my girls! I hope one day I can do it for their girls (or boys! I'd be ok with grandboys as well!)
