Over the past weekend, we transitioned our little one from her crib to a toddler bed. She’s slept on a toddler bed at her daycare for at least a few months now, but we’ve kept her in her crib at home because she seemed comfortable there (and I’m of the mind that if its not broken you don’t fix it).
She recently completed potty training though, and we decided we want her to have the freedom to get up to use the potty as she chooses. So- off to the store we went to purchase a little toddler bed.
As I sat there watching my husband put the bed together as our little one took her last nap in her crib, I cried. (It really doesn’t take much.) I can’t believe my little baby is turning into a big kid! Almost all of the remnants of her babyhood are disappearing… her diapers, her crib, even her high chair (we also moved to a booster seat at the table with Mommy and Daddy this weekend!) Now that she’s potty-trained, we can’t even use onesies, so those are out too.
It’s sad to see all of the remnants of such an amazing time in her and my life pass by, but I’m so excited for everything that’s new and replacing those things. Her big kid bed means easier bed time stories and tuck-in’s and dinner at the table with Mommy and Daddy means more chatter. I can’t wait to see what else the toddler years will bring!
