The Big Girl Bed

I just have to say that life with little ones in never boring. It is always changing. They outgrow their clothes, shoes, and even eating habits so, so fast! One day their eating pureed carrots, the next they are eating chicken nuggets! I get very sentimental when my kids hit big milestones. I usually get emotional and cry. For real, I do. Anna Belle recently outgrew her baby crib. I was a little sad, but more excited b/c Anna Belle was so excited about her new bed. Some sweet friends gave us this great bed (thank you!) that was perfect for her. So, Winfield painted it white and then sanded it down a little to give it a rustic/cottage look. It turned out so nice. The first few nights that she was sleeping in her new bed were sleepless b/c it is a big change for a little one. Now, I can tell that she is happy to have more space and loves her new quilt, sheets and pillow. She loves it so much and sleeps great. My little baby girl is growing up. I must accept it as hard as it is. Now, if she can just potty train!

So Funny

Somehow my girls got their hands on my camera the other day and decided to take some pictures. Most of them were really blurry and you couldn't tell what they were; except for 2 which were actually pretty good. Anna Belle took a picture of her favorite thing which she calls her "big doggie"and Elizabeth took a picture of her favorite things on her bed that she sleeps with. I thought it was really funny and really cute.

Fun Stuff

So, let's see... last time I posted, the pictures were from our little summer vacation. Sorry, I never got around to fixing the size of those pictures. We have had plenty of fun around our house since then! The fun never ends! Elizabeth has been loving her 2nd year of preschool. She also began her 2nd year of ballet, which she LOVES! I am back to work at the preschool 2 days a week and Anna Belle is happy tagging along! Elizabeth began soccer last week as well. She has fun with it, but doesn't LOVE it yet like she does dance. The soccer pictures are cute, though!
Today, Elizabeth had a haircut. She requested it to be "shorter" like mine. So, I had to take her picture! She looks like such a big girl with short hair! She LOVES her new hair-do! Thanks, Brittany! You're the jam!
On October 4th, 2 very special friends of ours, Sam and Brittany Finch "tied the knot". Winfield officiated and Elizabeth was the flower girl. We had SO much fun and were so honored to be a part of their big day! Enjoy the new pics! Love you all!
