I'm Not Ready for This

Darren and I have been exploring the idea of transitioning Emma out of her crib. We've looked at toddler beds, twin beds, mattresses, etc. Emma was intrigued in the stores but not overly excited.

Emma seems to love her crib. She doesn't try to climb out, never has. While at home, she only sleeps in her crib, never naps anywhere else, and just seems to feel so secure. So we have not been in a hurry. And well, let's face it. I'm just not ready.

Well, today we found the mattress set. We (Darren and I) decided let's just put the mattress on the floor next to her crib to let her get used to the idea. And well, let's face it. I'm just not ready.

Emma has proceeded to take all blankets out of her crib and lay them across her new bed. She's ecstatic and excited. And well, let's face it. I'm just not ready.

I'm hoping to leave her crib one more night. Maybe get one last picture of her nursery before we dismantle. And well, let's face it. I'm just not ready.

I've had these visions of what her room would look like, whether it would be a cartoon character, or polka dots, or something really girly. I haven't decided. I'm not prepared. And well, let's face it. I'm just not ready.

I bought two bedding sets today because I couldn't decide. And well, let's face it. I'm just not ready.

I'm still not thrilled with either. It's just not right. It's not what I envisioned. And well, let's face it. I'm just not ready.

My little ladybug is no longer little. And well, let's face it. I'm just not ready!

I felt the same way when my youngest was "ready" to be out of the crib. So sad! Why can't they stay little forever?
