Too Fast!!!

For the last 2 weeks my little Laney Bug has been climbing out of her crib. She’s 2 1/2 now…but I’m just not ready for her to grow up and take down her crib. On Friday she climbed out again and I had to face reality that she’s not a baby anymore…I cried most of the morning feeling heartbroken that my last child is moving on.

I have to admit I was surprised at how emotional I was over the whole thing. But I couldn’t help it and I had to have a good cry.

Before we took down the crib we had to take a few pics….

I feel like her expression is saying, “Oh Mom!!! You will be’s just a bed!” LOL! 🙂

Alayna helping Daddy disassemble the crib. She was very excited to be a big helper. 🙂

In my distress on Friday, I posted on Facebook all about my sadness, and a wonderful Mom from my ward replied by telling me she had a toddler bed with the princess bedding to go with it, if I wanted it!

I was ‘thrilled’ and very appreciative and was able to pick it up on Saturday. 🙂 What a blessing!

So today..Sunday.. we got everything put together and in her room and she was SO excited! Alayna LOVES princesses and she was so happy with her Big Girl Bed!

I’m still a little heavy hearted, but I know she can’t stay 2 years old forever…I sure would like to try though! It’s all going TOO FAST!

    First of all, she has got to be the cutest 2 1/2 year old around! I love pics of her.

    And that bed? So dang cute! And even cuter since it was free!

    Kiara never climbed out of her crib but we decided to convert it to a bed a couple of months ago just because and somehow when that happened it was like she grew up overnight. I kept telling Ben to put the crib back together so I could have my baby again! If she were my last I don't know what I'd do…
