Milestones

I don’t know why moving Squidge to a big bed has hit me so hard but it has.  This past week I bought her a single bed.  We put it together today and she’s upstairs now sleeping in it.  She looks so tiny in the bed. I know she is tiny in the grand scheme of things but she’s also so big!  I need to check to see how tall she is because I’m convinced she’s had a bit of a growth spurt. Her room is almost complete, just some finishing touches to be done.

new bed

She’s sleeping on her old cotbed mattress because we’re still waiting for her single mattress to be delivered.  She has stuffies all around the mattress in case she rolls off her mattress. I don’t want her to fall only to slats.  I’m down here right now with one ear listening for a thud.  Last time she slept in a bed this high she fell out of the bed twice.  Hoping that because she’s on her old mattress she will stay put.

I’ve now moved onto the hallway.  I’ve completely stripped the wallpaper upstairs and have stripped the paint from the banister.  This week I’ll finish up downstairs then it’s filling, filling and more filling. Fun!!

    aaahh! so sweet! it looks wonderful.. great job!! C is a queen. We don’t have a guest room so it was the best compromise. It is funny because she usually stays on one side or she sleeps across the pillows.. No idea!! Does Es wake when she falls off? C never did.. Continued success with the re doing of the house.. awesome work!

      She has no idea she’s fallen off the bed. Each time we ask her she gets very upset with us because she has absolutely not ever never fallen off the bed and why are we accusing her!! LOL we just laugh at her, which gets her even madder!

    Each milestone stops me dead in my tracks, we did this with mini when he was a wee bit younger than E. It is so hard to let them grow up espcially when it is a terrible world out there
