Big Changes

This little girl is so excited that her Daddy turned her bed into a "big girl" bed today. She must have told him a half dozen times, "Daddy, thank you for making my bed a big girl bed, I love my bed." Sweet girl, she is growing up right before my eyes. Oh and check out those cute little braids in her hair today.

We heard horror stories about what it would be like when we decided to convert her crib. I am happy to tell you that she has been in bed for about an hour now and NEVER once attempted to get up. I really did not think she would. I explained to her that it was important she stay in her bed and to just call us if she needed anything and we would hear her on the monitor. She listened closely and said, "just call Mommy & Daddy if I need them", you got it baby girl.

While I am bragging, let me also document that we have been going to the potty on our own for 2 weeks now. No reminders, she just tells us or goes and gets on the potty all by herself. We are so proud of you Emma Lou!

Here she is all snuggled into bed. Yes, she sleeps with all that stuff too. We go through roll call every night, goes a little something like this....Baby, Beamer, Cousin, Bunny, Aerial, B-dog, other bunny & Minnie. Some days I wonder how there is room for her, but she would not have it any other way. She knows if one is missing and she also knows if her little blanket is on the pink side or the floral one. She is such a little creature of habit already.

I had to post a couple pictures of my little man. Just so you know, we are not breaking the rules with our cranial band. We are allowed to take it off 1 hour a day.

We are enjoying the Fall weather and the little front that has blown through this weekend. Looking forward to the cool days ahead and loving on these two sweet babies of mine.
