Moving On Up.....Or Just Into The Room Next Door

So I have been thinking a lot about Alyssa and how she is growing like a weed! 
Currently she is sleeping in a toddler bed that I converted from her crib. 
So basically I took the front rail off of her crib so she can crawl in and out. She has been sleeping like that for about a year and a half maybe more. 
She looks like such a big girl!

Well since Alyssa & I moved into the basement of my sisters house we are sharing a bedroom, one half is hers and the other half is mine.
I am worried that because we share a room there is not a lot of room to work with, and since Alyssa is pretty tall for her age she will grow out of her toddler bed within the next year or so. In that case I just don't think there will be enough space for her to have a twin size bed in our bedroom.
So with the help of my sister we have came up with a plan!

I am moving into the living room!!

I don't even know why I didn't think of this before! I am never even in my living room except for when I am on my laptop in which I have a desk area set up so I'm still not sitting on my couch or love seat. I am always upstairs with Ashley and her family. So why not just get rid of the stuff that is occupying up a lot of space and that I don't even use!

Part of me is super excited to have my own bedroom again! Honestly, I have not had my own bedroom since Alyssa was born!! So you can imagine that the other part of me is somewhat feeling sad and reserved about this big move!

Well guess what the big day is TODAY!!!

I will be making some big changes in my basement to make it more livable for the next year or so as my baby girl is a growing! Don't worry I will be posting before and after pictures for you all to enjoy!

How old was your child when you moved them from a toddler bed to a twin bed?
What advice can you give me for making the most out of your small spaces?
