We get age-inappropriate nostalgic whining from Richard about how much he misses his old room.

(Strip Number 4647, Original Publication Date, 8 July 1986)

Panel 1: As Anne shows off Leah's bedroom, she tells Elly that she's wanted a little girl for so very long and now gets to indulge her desire to splurge on frilly clothing with lace and pink nightgowns.

Panel 2: Elly tells her that she's done a beautiful job on her room.

Panel 3: She then sets up the punchline by asking Richard if he agrees with her assessment.

Panel 4: He says that it sort of used to be because it used to be his room.

Summary: Looks as if someone got lost in the shuffle on this one. There seems to be a theme of people forgetting their old baby in the excitement of having the new one only to turn around and bleat about how resilient they are.
