Big Girl Bed

It is so sad. Our little Makenna is growing up way too fast. Last night we put her in her big girl bed for the first time. We have Weston's old bed and we thought it would be cheaper to just put her in his twin bed then having to go buy a toddler bed. We did buy a safety thing for the side of the bed so she wouldn't roll out. But just to be safe we layered pillows and blankets all around the bed on the floor just in case she happened to fall out. It would provide a softer landing. But she stayed in the bed all night. She was so cute! She was a little hesitant when we put her down at first so I laid with her for a few minutes and then she was fine. This morning it was really cute, she climbed out of her bed and came to find me. Our bedroom door was closed though so she just stood outside it calling for me. From now on we'll have to keep it cracked open.

Here she is with her polka dotted sheets. I took her to the store yesterday so she could pick out her own but she didn't really care about them.

She was so cute lining up all her Teddy Bears in her new bed. I bet she has more than 20 stuffed animals. I don't know where so got so many from. She's only two! (well almost 2)

She loves her bed. Every time she gets up on it she lays down and says nigh, nigh. (Night, night)

Such a big girl!

She had to help Weston with everything. Pushing it into her room, putting it all together and putting in the draws. She is such a good helper!

She's growing up so fast! You are brave too! I kept Micah "caged" as long as possible!! I love and hate the fact that he can get in and out of his bed on his own. And when did you go back to work? We really need to get together and catch up! :)

I can't believe she's old enough for a big girl bed!!! I'm dreading the day I put Mylie in one!! It's good she's so happy about it though. That makes it easier for mom and dad! :)

She is so darn cute. I can't believe how big she is getting. I love that bed too.
