Seems like just yesterday...

I was lifting her into her crib, teaching her to write her first name, making sure she wouldn't fall off the playground equipment, buckling her in the car seat, she cheered me on during my BIG day (college graduation), working on her back roll and so many other wonderful memories...

Now today, she is jumping up on her big girl bed, writing her full name (first, middle and last), can recite our address and phone number by heart, plays on the playground while Jake and I sit idly to the side enjoying watching her climb and have fun not worried at all if she will fall, buckling herself in the car, about to graduate from Pre-K at her school, can do (3) back walkovers and working on her back hand spring, a plethora of random amazing things come out of her mouth every single day, and just when I don't think I could love her more she says things like... "Mommy, you rock!" She has blossomed into a beautiful little girl who although at times is a little stinker, she is my little stinker and she is a blessing to be around.

Yesterday we converted her to her "BIG GIRL BED", my small short little munchkin had out grown the current conversion of a day bed and it was time to convert. Laci helped us choose her bedding and we went with a beautiful purple which complemented her room decorations perfectly.

Here is my soon to be 5 year old, getting bigger every day, making me more and more proud and becoming so independent.

Laci and her new bed



  1. What a sweet post! I love the bedding you guys picked out. She still looks pretty little on such a big bed!

  2. Awww what a sweet post! Making me tear up thinking about my own almost 3 year old getting old :( Is she taking gymnastics? Where do you guys go?

  3. That is sweet! And her wall is so cute too!

  4. Ashley- Thank you my dear! She is and will always be my baby, little munchkin, my boo... but I look back and wonder... "When did you get so big?" I suppose they all do that huh?!?

    Megan - she is in cheerleading at Cheer Athletics in Garland. She is on the Itty Bitty Kitty Team. She has been taking privates since she was a little over 3. This is the link back to December when she first got her back walkovers. They are fluid and flawless now. I want to cry every time I look back at pictures. I mean the picture in my top bar was from when she was two. I really aught to update that. There are times I am sad that she isn't still little, but she is so much fun at this age that I am just going to enjoy every minute of it!

    Janice- I should probably post pictures of all of her walls, they are really pretty and we did them before I started this blog, so I never got around to posting pics of them. Thanks for the comments!

  5. Oops... said link was missing...

  6. Oh my goodness. Seriously, you have the cutest kid.

  7. Jen you know that all of yours are just as super stinkin adorable!
