Today was a big day for Kerry, and just a little bittersweet for Mommy. She's passing down her crib to her new cousin, who's due to arrive in early December, so today we put up her brand new big girl bed. It is a seriously sweet gloss-white antique-y metal bed. There's also a fold-away bed rail so Mommy and Daddy can sleep better knowing she's not going to fall out. She LOVES her new bed and was so excited that she completely skipped her nap.
She was not at all upset to see the crib go, in fact she kept saying "bye crib!" and she "helped" take it apart.
And, of course, she "helped" put her new bed together. After which she spent the longest time just bouncing around in it, giggling and squealing.
She crashed early due the lack of a nap, and is currently spending her first night snoozing snugly in her new bed. Let me add, she did not actually fall asleep in her new bed, as she promised she would. Nope, she fell asleep in my arms while watching Bugs Bunny in the living room. Then I had to transfer her to the bed....and take pictures of course (yes, I'm afraid we're going to have to do something about her bedtime routine, but that's for another post). Sweet dreams little one.
