time to bring in the big girl bed

Today we took down Sophia's crib and replaced it with her big girl bed!

I had to hold back tears, I wasn't expecting to get so emotional about it.

Pretty soon she'll be hanging Hannah Montana posters, sniff.

But for now my little two year old loves her new bed...

...wearing a witch costume and all.

One day I hope to get her a sweet headboard and make her a cute bed skirt too.

I had previously made her the mini duvet cover for her crib. I just made her the plain white duvet cover (with my amazing serger!) and miraculously made 6 perfect button holes on my regular machine. I have never been able to make a good button hole...ever. Then while my mom was here visiting she introduced me to the "button hole foot", who knew?! Fabulous! I am gaining more and more confidence with my sewing skills!

On a side and sentimental note this is the bed that I bought myself when I was 18 and first moved out on my own.
I never imagined it would one day be my baby girls bed!

That is so neat that she is using your old bed! And I love my serger too! Aren't they amazing. And, I also suck at button holes!

Okay - mama confession time...I cried too when Allikaye went to the big girl bed! And can that girl be any cuter in her costume with her pacifier?! Ah!

I cried when Bella moved into her toddler bed...I can only imagine the waterfall that will happen once we get the twin beds for the girls' room. *sniff*

Love her room--and the paci picture! She is just way too cute!
