We are now a family without a crib for the first time in 6 years. Okay, this was a very sad moment for me! Our babies are all growing up. Asher probably wants to be a big boy most of all, so it was time to move up.
We had a bed we purchased from Ethan Allen when Alivia was a baby for our spare room. Clearly, we filled our spare room and did not have room for the bed. So, Chris' parents have been storing the bed in their basement for years. Finally, the time had come for Asher, now 2 1/2 year old, to move from the crib to his "new" bed.
Daddy and Boppa Bill went and picked up the bed on Friday. Saturday morning, the moment I dreaded finally came. Daddy took down the baby crib and to make room for Asher's new bed. Asher loves his new bed, and so do we. It looks great in his room.
Asher slept in his new bed for the first time last night. He went right to sleep and slept until 7:30 this morning (which is sleeping in for Asher!). This morning he told me how he liked his bed and it's airplane comforter. Now...we have to get the rest of his room decorated, finally. Oh, and now our home has a twin bed in Alivia's room, full sized bed in Addison's room, queen sized bed in Asher's room and a king sized bed in our room. Seriously, all we are missing is a crib (which we have in the house) and bunk beds!
As for the crib, I agreed to put into storage but not sell it. I will sell it when I am 40 or whenever I am good and ready, whichever comes first.
