They are sharing a room

With the arrival on my mum on Thursday it meant we had to move baby penguin out of the spare room and put her in with toddler penguin.  In order to do this we had to dismantle her cot as it doesn't fit through the doorways in one go.  She could've come in with us but it would have meant we either couldn't get into our wardrobe or actually into the bedroom itself so the only solution was for her to go in with her brother.

Baby penguin turned 9 months old this week however she still wakes in the night, 4 times out of 5 for a bottle and we didn't want her disturbing toddler penguin.  However what with this so called heat wave we've had all the doors and windows open to circulate the air and her crying at night didn't disturb him at all.  The first night she woke about midnight and was happy for me to just give her a dummy.  Her crying didn't wake her brother at all.  The second night didn't matter as at 2am toddler penguin wandered into our room and spent the rest of the night in our bed.  Luckily its a king so we hardly notice him in it.

Now mum has returned home, we've decided to let them share for the foreseeable future.

Here's a pic of them sharing.  One day they'll be in bunk beds but for now I think their room is ok.  I do need to have a tidy up a bit especially under toddler penguin's bed and maybe I'll add a few girlies touches!
