A last, perhaps.


I knew these days were numbered, but I'm sad, nevertheless, that Kristen has finally outgrown our bedside bassinet. I brought the big girl crib into our bedroom a couple of days ago and I'm hoping that tonight, Darren will be able to help me set it up. While she was napping a little while ago it occurred to me that this might be my last chance to photograph her sleeping in the little bed she came home to when she was such a tiny newborn. I couldn't imagine then that she'd ever be big enough for any other sleeping accommodations! How quickly she grows.

Don't tell! I kept my daughter and son in a tiny cradle for SEVEN months. I hated moving to the crib. Your daughter is breathtakingly beautiful.

Wow! Where did the time go?

Oh, a sleeping baby just makes me sigh and feel at peace. My littlest one was a hard one to transition to a crib - not hard for her - for me! Now her tiny bassinet sits at the foot of her crib filled with dolls.

God bless you and yours!
