Well, our good thing has come to an end. It’s time for a big girl bed. Yes, that’s right. My sweet girl has slept like an angel in her crib for over three years #favoritechild.
So many friends are shocked when I mention that Sadie still sleeps in a crib at three years old. And honestly I never thought she would last this long. But she never once complained and never once tried to climb out….so we just stuck with it. She loves her bed and willingly slept in it all night long. So why mess with a good thing? When Hudson was two and a half we transitioned him out of his crib and in to a big kid bed so that we could use the crib for Sadie…and he’s been a lousy sleeper ever since. So we knew when I got pregnant with Belle that we would just buy a second crib instead of pushing her transition too soon.
Over the last few weeks Sadie has been asking for a big girl bed….so I knew our time was running short. Dang I’m going to miss these days. Sadie sleeping so well in her crib has been a blessing. And I would do it all over again if I could. But she’s ready to move up to a big kid bed. I’m not. I want to keep her little forever.
I’m going to miss this crib that both my big kids slept in every night. I just can’t give it up and plan on keeping it forever (or for as long as Jon will let me).
This feels like it was just yesterday. Why do babies have to grow up so fast?
