Big Girl Bed

I have decided that watching your child grow is not for the faint of heart.  We recently transitioned Morgan to a full-sized bed, an event that made her giddy and not surprisingly, made me cry.
I was immediately brought back to 2008, when David was so proudly assembling Morgan's crib in her new nursery and I was so proudly supervising. 

In what seemed like just a blink of an eye, there we were again, only this time David was taking it all apart.

And I was putting it back together for our little girl, virtually erasing any memory of the tiny newborn we once laid in that crib.

I was a little concerned that Morgan would be unhappy with the new look. I don't know what I was thinking.  Morgan immediately called my mom, climbed into her new bed, and proceeded to tell her all about her big girl room.

Of course, I stood there blubbering, dumbfounded at the realization that she'll be 15 before we know it. I just hope my heart can take it.

This was all, of course, before some crazy person slept in her bed. She's probably asked you for a new bed by now. :)
