Thanks to the previous homeowners, the room was already painted a bright pepto-bismol pink. So, we moved the guest bedroom furniture to my parents house, moved the desk to the bonus room, and prepared the room for a little girl. So far, the room is very simple, but we'll decorate it and add art-work as E gets used to the room (and can help in the decorating).

As I left, I hung a little music box on her doorknob (just as we did when my son was little). The "doorbell" is to give her a greater sense of control and security by knowing that we're always a ring away and she's not completely alone. Unlike my son, she was not used to having a music box in her crib, so I wasn't sure how she would respond to it. I explained to her that when she wanted to open the door, she needed to press the button and mama or daddy would come.
