A baby no more...

So after last night with the big girl bed and the whole potty thing, Tom and I were talking about how our little "baby" isn't a baby at all anymore. I signed her up for pre-school (fights tears) and she wants to "take dance" this fall too. OMG!! What is happening?? All these "babies" are growing up WAY too fast.

As we were sitting on the front porch this evening, just enjoying this amazing weather I snapped a couple of pictures. When I uploaded these, I honestly got a tear in my eye. She is so grown up...turning three and no longer a baby at all.

Big Girl Bed...FINALLY!

After many attempts made my Tom and myself to convert Maddie's bed to a big girl bed (actually just take the front off the crib) Maddie FINALLY asked for her big girl bed yesterday.

We have taken the front off of Maddie's bed before and she would play and think it was great and then say..."put it back on please" when it was time for bed. Yesterday she said she would like her big girl bed and was all about it!! :) That is...until it was time for sleep. She again said, "put it back on please, I need my crib". Only this time we said nope, you are too big of a girl for a crib. She fussed for a few minutes saying "oh PLEEEEASE....may I PLEASE have it" about killing us!! :) She feel asleep and did great all night. This morning she woke up and said, "HA, Mom I have a big girl bed, you wanna see???". :)

She is growing up so fast, we just want to keep her this age forever. She is such a sweet little girl, with so much heart and so very smart. We love you oodles and oodles Madilyn Adele!!
