Bye Bye Crib

  My baby is in a big girl bed and I am really sad about it.  The crib has been up in some part of our house for the last four years and now it's in several pieces in our basement.  
My kids are growing up and it's wonderful and terrible all at the same time. 
The worst part??  The girl's got freedom and she LOVES it!  We've had a couple of frustrating nights, but tonight I just put my hands up and took some pictures.

Because as frustrating as it is right now, I'm going to be hanging on to these sweet little moments {of her putting every. single. one. of her babies to bed and reciting every. single. Sandra Boynton book ever made} wondering why I was ever stressing out about a 2-hour bedtime routine.


  1. oh Sarah! What a beautiful post. Even as quick as she's growing up she'll always be your baby.

  2. Yep, that one had me in tears. Good job on deciding to be in the moment with her. Beautiful choice you won't ever regret.

  3. How sweet is this? What a big precious girl!
    ( I am DREADING this day ! )

  4. Beautiful! You are so much braver than us. Eric wants to keep Maisy in her crib until she 16 :)

  5. Love. this. post. and the accompanying photos.

  6. I am loving your processing on the last two series.
    Cute kids.
