Ava’s big girl bed!!!!

We have been working on getting Ava’s room set up to be her big girl room! We ordered furniture almost a month ago, and her bed and nightstand came in perfectly, but we’ve had to send TWO dressers back due to damage. Praying the one we get this week arrives in great condition!

We also received her new big girl bedding! (A special thanks to my mother-in-law, Nancy, for buying it for her – she loves it!). She has been so excited about her “new bed”, so we thought we’d take pictures of her getting to open the box with her bedding. PURE excitement waiting for it!

IMG_2773 IMG_2769IMG_2770 She was seriously giddy. It was hard to get a good picture of her because she kept jumping around. Love that life excites her so much!

Friday night was her first night sleeping in her big girl bed! She was SOOOO excited and she did great!IMG_2782 IMG_2776 She woke up once in the middle of the night and cried and I went in there and she was back asleep in 5 minutes. I told her yesterday if she woke up scared then not to cry but to shout that she was scared and I’d come in there. Well, last night she slept all night but woke up this morning saying “I SCARED!” over and over! :) Of course, I could tell she wasn’t – she just wanted someone to come get her! :) I pray that the transition stays this easy! When we get the rest of her furniture and everything set up, we’ll share photos of her new room!

Another big milestone is that i’m 24 weeks today! If this baby boy was born early, he’d have a long road ahead of him, but at least he’d have a chance of survival. Thankful to make it to this point! Here we are before church this morning – I feel like he is growing rapidly – I’m worried I may have a linebacker in there!


Ava wanted to be in my picture this morning!IMG_2794

Hope everyone had a good weekend! I’ve had a long week of not feeling the best (i think the heat has A LOT to do with it), so we’ve tried to take it easy. Hoping I survive this week with record highs expected. I’m ready for fall! :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful week!!
