Ella is officially in a big girl bed. Last week, Heath and I got her the cutest little toddler bed and made the plunch last night putting it together. I was NERVOUS, but more than that, I was sad! It's like the crib was the little bit of baby I had left to hold on to. And now the crib is in pieces and there's a bed in it's place.
But it's exciting! I love her little bed and it fits perfectly in her little room.
Ella's reaction when she first saw it.
As you can see, she was SO excited about her surprise.
She immediately had to make sure this bed bounced as well as her crib.
I think she's satisfied.
A family pic:
She did great in it last night. After we put her in bed, she played for about 30 minutes laying down with her stuffed animals, which is normal. At that time, I went in to check on her and sat on her bed and was talking with her for a minute, when she looked at me and said so sweetly:
"Mama, go out the door."
"What?", I said.
And she repeated, "Mama, go out the door."
I said, "Do you want me to leave?" She looked up at me with those sweet eyes and said,
So I guess a new independence has come with a new bed. But I'm okay with it. Really, I am. Really, I promise. I'm fine.
Bye, bye sweet crib!
