The End of being a Baby

December 7, 2010

Yesterday we took Creamie’s crib apart and moved her into a twin bed.

Sometime between her nap yesterday and diner she became and expert climber.  And since her crib is no longer a containing device, but an accident waiting to happen, it had to go.

I hadn’t really planned on starting on her new big girl quilt until January.  But her room looks very plain without all her cute crib bedding.  And I miss it.  She did just fine without her crib the first night.  And this morning she keeps piling all her toys onto her new mattress (it’s just on the floor for now).  She is so proud to have her own bed.  She’s so not a baby anymore.  I’ll be back later today with another Handmade Christmas post.  I’m a little behind, what with the very unexpected turn of events last night.  I really hope that this isn’t the end of naptime for me.  I’ll cry.

    It is a sad day when naps are over. Although my kids did move to a little bit earlier bedtime.
    That’s great that she likes her new big bed!

    good times! It’s too bad you don’t have a toddler bed so you can keep using her cute bedding. I’d be as sad about that as anything! But you know how I feel about farmer’s market. 🙂

    She’s getting so big!

    What a big girl! The bedding set you made for her is so adorable, I feel your pain at having to put that away.

    Oh wow! How kids grow oh so fast. I bet it will be fun though to get to redecorate her room as she is growing. It’s great to hear that she adjusted so well 🙂

    she’s too little to give up naptime.

    And she’s adorable.
    And her bedding is cute too.
    And I’d better get started on S’ big boy quilt!

    giving up naptime is the hardest thing EVER!!!

    The first time Grasshopper climbed out of his crib (probably about the same age as Creamie), it scared the snot out of me. I wondered who was in the house to have let him out of his crib. After that, he wouldn’t take a nap unless I would take him for a 15-minute drive to get him to fall asleep in the car. I *hope* it goes better for you. Moms need naptime too (probably more than the kids).

    HUGS! Thinking of you!

    Hi ,
    I was wondering if you made her beautiful crib set and blanket? It is just wonderful…
    If there is a pattern somewhere I would just love to know where…
    Thanks so much for the time you spend doing this wonderful website.

    What beautiful bedding! I can’t wait to see what her big girl bed will look like.
