Big Girl Bed!






1 white baby crib=FREE
1 new big girl bed and matress=$139.00
Keeping baby confined for nap and nightime=PRICELESS

So a few months ago, Malik and Rhys broke Jorie's bed by standing on the outside rail while they were playing with her. Corey thought he fixed it but come to find out Jorie herself can push the rails apart an d pull out the bars. Then, Sunday night it finally died when the lever that you use to lift the side rail up was broken off. (it's has been a great crib and much appreciated handmedown from Colette, used for 3 kids) With Jorie only being 15-16 months old we needed a new bed. But first, I tried a few other options that didn't work. Pushing the crib against the wall, (not the safest option), crib mattress on floor, (she napped fine but she spent the night on the floor since she couldn't stay in the mattress) and finally her new big girl bed that adjusts and gets longer as she grows. She loves it and has slept her first night all the way through on it (not on the floor). Send me good juju that this works!!!

I can't believe she is in a big girl bed already. I can't even imagine what a nightmare bedtime would be for me if Mia wasn't confined to the crib. Darling Bed!!

I'm sending you good juju. She is so cute and I love the new bed. I see you added your new favorite song to your blog. I like it. How do you put songs on your blog anyway?

That is a darling bed. That is the bad part about putting away the crib; they can get out when they want to!
