Big Girl Bed!

Well, since we have a little monkey on our hands, we decided it was definitely time to make the transition to the big girl bed.  We went to buy a mattress and box springs so that we could get her bed in place (her crib converted into a full size bed)!  And then we shopped for some bedding.  So fun!  And it turned out so cute!  Here is the view of the big girl bed as you walk into the room...
 ...and this is the view from the other corner - love it!
 Sunday night was actually the first night in the bed - here she is climbing in the first time.
 She was SO proud and excited!
 And Daddy "tuck tuck tuck"-ed her in!
 And she loved being in her bed with all her buddies.  Look at that smile!
 And this...this is the moment I had dreamt about for years...being able to tuck my sweet girl in and lay with her in bed and read a book.  It was so sweet and I love being able to snuggle with her in her OWN bed before saying goodnight!
 And of course I snuck in and took a picture of her once she had fallen asleep.  Such a sweet, pure look.
And I do have to say...when I was laying in the bed with Katie the first night and reading a book, the perfect song was on the radio...Martina McBride's "Blessed".  Here is the chorus:
I have been blessed
And I feel like I've found my way
I thank God for all I've been given
At the end of every day
I have been blessed
With so much more than I deserve
To be here with the ones that love me
To love them so much it hurts
I have been blessed
And it couldn't be more true....


  1. Love it! So when do kids understand how to stay in one position all night? Addison would fall out of that bed b/c she is all over the place during the night.

  2. Oh my gosh - HOW is she old enough for a big girl bed?! Your teensie tiny girl is GROWING UP! AHH! I am SO not ready for that. Her room looks fantastic! So sweet!
