This past week has been full of milestones for this Mom!

1.  Gavin is half way done with 1st grade!  How did this happen?

2.  We took Kyra to school for a Kindergarten Tour and meet the teacher day!  How did this happen?

3.  And by far the most difficult for this Mom...The crib that has been a crib for more than 7 years in this house was turned into a toddler bed for Little Miss Reagan!  Gavin was the only one of our kids to ever get out of the crib (and he climbed out safely - no falling), Kyra was kicked out by Carley long before she was probably ready to be done with the crib and Carley was kicked out by Reagan but it was just about perfect timing.  Reagan, we decided, needed to get out of the crib before she became out first one to fall out of the crib.  So, yesterday Jed converted the crib into a toddler bed.  She did AWESOME!  We put the girls to bed like we always do and Reagan was sitting up in bed and we thought "this is never going to work."  We never heard a peep out of her.  She stayed in bed and when we checked on her she was sleeping as she always does - baby, sippy cup of water and favorite blanket.  On another positive note she also did not fall out of bed last night.  We had pillows strategically placed on the floor, just in case, but she did great.  I checked on her this morning and she was in the same exact place except turned around the opposite way.?!  She came down on her own this morning definitely thinking she was big stuff!!!  How did it happen that we no longer need a crib in our house?!

Your blog is too cute. Congrats on all of the milestones. Funny story--I was doing our guest list and I was adding your family. My mom was impressed that I was able to give all the names of your kids. I then told her that we're bloggy friends. :) Looking forward to seeing you all this summer or hopefully even sooner!

Ya know Shannon, there is a way to need that crib again ;-)

(You know I just had to say that!)

There is a family at school who were "done having kids, since the youngest was in 5th grade and they just had TWIN girls about a month after Kyle was born. So never say never :-)

Love ya!
