A Little Sad...Sniff!


A couple years ago, this baby... 

...was sleeping in this crib. 

 And at this very moment, this toddler is sleeping in this big girl bed....

 This morning we sold our crib, the beautiful crib that saw me through three babies.  And I have to admit, it makes me a little sad!  I really loved that crib, and spent such time choosing it six years ago.  It's hard to believe it's gone...

 ...but our little girl is growing up, and is ready to move on, even if Mommy isn't!

And as I peeked in on her to see if she was asleep, I saw something that makes my Mommy heart smile- babies and strollers and other dolly items strewn about the floor!  Maybe this little bit of freedom in her room during naps will awaken the dolly lover in her!  I can only hope!


P.S. Isn't that big kitty cat pillow adorable?  It's from Costco, if you're interested!

sweet post Corey! I can imagine this was a touch one to get rid of. I never used a crib, but I do see what you're saying. Babies are all growing so big. I am actually enjoying the growing big thing, but i just think I am so exhausted from the third toddler that nothing "baby" makes me sad. Interesting.

very nice pictures too! :)

Ah this is precious! We are actually in the process of purchasing a crib right now. Still no baby... but with the foster kiddos and my determination to not give up on my body, I think having a crib in the home will be a good investment all around. It's really really hard to decide, I just know I want something that will last a lifetime so I can pass it down or keep on filling it LOL!
It's such a treat to watch your pumpkins grow. You inspire me as a mom and an artist!!!!
