So Long Crib

Do you know what this is a picture of?

This, my friends, this mess of hair and pillow pet, is a picture of my baby (my baby!), sleeping in her Big Girl Bed (aka, mattress on the floor in big sisters' room).

I almost woke her up with the dumb flash while trying to get this picture.

That's how dedicated I am to documenting my life for you people.

I almost don't dare to tell you how easy this transition has been.


Granted, it's only night 2.  And last night she willingly fell asleep after falling victim to a fever virus that's going through our house.

But still.

Tonight, she laid down without a complaint, right next to Princess #3 (who still crawls in bed with me in the middle of the night, ahem).  No wiggling.  No fussing.  No getting out of bed to play with rogue toys that weren't put away.

Is it possible that we might actually have a child that enjoys staying in bed?

Dare I hope?

Check back with me in a few nights and I'll let you know.

My friends, I feel like in some ways I should be a bit more nostalgic about this momentous occasion.  After NINE years, our crib will no longer be in use.  That's pretty amazing.  Just another reminder that my childbearing days are over.  No longer in the season have HAVING babies, I'm in the season of GROWING UP babies.  But that's another post for another time.  Until then, enjoy this little video I shot of Princess #4 on her last night in the crib.

  1. Aww, kind of bittersweet isn't it? I think I was actually more teary about getting rid of my changing table than I was the crib. My kids actually used the changing table. The crib? Not so much.


Let me know what you think!
