Our Baby



Our baby is now 3. That sweet angel was due on Christmas Day, so my c-section was scheduled 6 days earlier. She is a joy, a hoot, a mess, a sweetheart, a fireball, and a talker all rolled into one. She will pinch you and then hug and kiss you within minutes. We all delight in her and she knows it.

Tonight I tried to put her to bed a little bit earlier than her siblings. We read a book, I took the time to learn that she does have good reading comprehension skills, and then we said prayers together. She prayed, "And thank you for a big girl bed. A pink one. And thank you for my crib....." And I cried. I cried because we have not moved her to a big girl bed yet. I cried because I have always had a little one in a crib and there is not someone to follow in her footsteps. I cried because I am thankful for who she is and who she will be, and yet sad to see her become "big". And now I have to go find the prettiest pink big girl bed you've ever seen! :)

I will prolly send my son to college with his crib - it will be hard to let my baby grow up!

Precious. We share the same birthday. Love that.
And boy do I know how you feel ... it's hard letting go of the "baby" things. Now that the twins have turned four, I feel lost w/o a baby. All all kids are three year apart (well the twins only one minute). It's a new chapter for sure.
Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,

I know! I feel that way with my 2 year-old little guy. He's my baby and it's hard to see him get bigger. You just want to cuddle with and hold them as long as you can!

Happy belated birthday to your "big girl". Our little man turned 3 in late November it's been a challenge for me too! He's truly no longer a baby...not even a toddler. He's a preschooler! And while I love him to death and love experiencing life thru his eyes...I wish he'd slow down just a bit!

Happy shopping for that pink big girl bed!

I kept Pinkie in her crib until we moved when she was 3 years, 2 months. If we had not moved she would probably still be in it!

I can't wait to see the bed you find--please post pics!
