Bye Bye Baby

She is growing up and fast. At the tender age of 19 months, she has decided that the crib is no longer an acceptable means of slumber furniture and instead, would much prefer the $30 toddler bed that Mommy found at a garage sale this summer. We are on day three in the bed and so far, the transition has been almost too easy.


And for those of you that are wondering, "Did she cry on this moment like so many others with her children", the answer is a resounding Yes. It killed me to take the crib apart because I had to come to terms with the fact that my baby is growing up way too fast (like her big brother).

PS - STAY TUNED FOR A VERY EXCITING CONTEST THAT I WILL BE HOSTING! THE RED TAPE HAS BEEN CLEARED SO IT WILL BE UP AND RUNNING WITHIN THE NEXT FOUR DAYS!! YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS IT!!

Bode is 26 months old and has absolutely no inclinations to leave his crib. And do you know what? If he's happy in his cage...errr...crib, then so am I!

The wall flowers are appliques that you can buy from Walmart if you can believe it.

And Amber - if you can believe it, both kids hit 19 months and acted like they were being tortured when put into the crib. It was a total fight with arms and legs grabbing or pushing against the rails to get them in the darn thing. Kind of weird if you ask me. Luckily for me (so far), neither will get out of their beds in the middle of the night preferring to call for me instead.
