Is she being fussy? Do you have her favorite toys available?

Walk her around the house and let her investigate every nook and cranny. She's in unfamiliar territory and she needs to explore it to get used to it.

Start talking about her new room and give her something to focus on. Take her in there and ask her where she wants to out her bed etc. She will be fine nut include her so she feels she has some control. Remember they can't verbalize as much as they can understand.

This. Plus once the furniture arrives she will feel more secure with things she recognizes.

we got the beds here but i think we will probably "camp out" in our room at least tonight. she still isnt comfortable... she is fussy and she is acting up alot. she refuses to nap and during her sleep the last couple nights she has tossed and turned...
tomorrow i am really going to work on her room- getting it just right :) hopefully that will help!

Did you let her move some of her favorites by herself? Like pack her own bag before you left? That is what we had to do with our daughter. That and she saw the place a couple times before we moved and we bought decals for her wall (owls and a tree) that she picked out. So she knew where we were going, and that all of her things were coming too. She asked us a ton of questions (Is our toilet coming? Is the back yard coming? Can Bud and Rita (neighbors) move in with us?) We answered them all, and when the big day came, we got ice cream before leaving (everything was packed in the truck). She was thrilled to move after all of that.
