Our Little Girl Is Growing Up

Saturday morning, Russell suggested that we go ahead and convert Sophia's crib into her toddler bed. I was thinking, "why would we want to do that" but then I started thinking of how difficult it can be to motivate Russell to do odd jobs around the house (the procrastinator that he is), and decided why not. Who knows when I'd be able to get him to do it later? But the other part of me was quite content to just keep her in the crib until she gets too tall for it. She's not a climber so that's not an issue. But honestly it does feel weird when I'm tucking her in at night, to still be putting her in a crib when she's so grown up. I was really worried about her not staying in her bed, especially since she can open her door so who knows what would happen at night? But as worried as I was, I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. We could always put the bars back up if she didn't stay in bed (which we told her would happen if she got out of bed).

Sophia discovered all of her crocheted baby blankets. I made all of them except the pink/green/white one.

Sophia was pretty excited to say the least.

Then we decided to convert her changing table while we were at it. We haven't had to use that in forever.

Sophia didn't want us to take away the top. She wanted to use it for her seat.

Then we made her bed.

Here's a close up of the quilt I made for her before she was born.

And to top off all of these momentous changes, I painted Sophia's nails for the first time. I was painting mine and she wanted hers painted too.

I'm happy to report that she stayed in bed for her first nap in her big girl bed. Success!
