Bye bye crib

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 has been all smiles and keeps saying "Dats KERRY's!"

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.

Indeed that is an exciting time! How she said, "Dat's Kerrys" is SO cute!

She's so very peaceful looking. I love little sleeping angel babies.

What a big girl (sorry, I know you don't want to hear that right now)! I think it's terrific that you let her "help" in the process and that you can remind her that the baby on the way will have her crib, and she can even visit it from time to time?!

Now, um, can you help us get Peanut INTO her crib? (not sleeping with us, but in other places, grrr. Future entry, for sure).

I loved how excited she was yesterday to show me her "big girl bed"!! I hope she made it through the night okay! Now if we could just figure out a way to slow her down from growing up way too fast!!

Oh, Kerry Lu is growing up too fast. She looks so precious when she is sleeping.

Love the "big girl bed"! I think Tate would love to move out of her crib if she had the chance. Hoping I can hold her off until spr/summer.

Precious! The bed, the bedding and especially the kiddo! :)
