One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Not a baby anymore...

Well -- we promised a "big girl bed" -- and that is what she got :) Actually we just bought a full mattress and converted her 3-in-1 crib... but it is still BIG! Here is Evelyn after the mattress was delivered/made.
When Evelyn went to bed that night I was telling her how she has slept in the crib since she was born, how she would be all swaddled up, etc. --- she looked at me and said "but I am not a baby anymore momma". Have to admit -- it made me a little sad :(
Here is the cuddle-party today on the assembled bed. The bed is really high though (even higher than mine!!)... we might swap out her box springs for the lower profile one (I think it is 4" shorter). You can't see it, but we actually have a stepstool at the end of the bed she uses to climb into it!! We will also be adding a bedskirt (Nana is working on making one with the same fabrics that are in the window valence)

She still can't part with her baby blanket though :)

How adorable! We love you Evie!

Poor little Lucy is going to need a step stool for a while. :)

What a big girl!

And on the blanket issue, Ava still sleeps with her favorite baby blanket, and I still have mine up in my bedroom closet:)
