Big Girl Bed

Edy has just successfully completed her first full week of sleeping in her big girl bed. This milestone was met by deep sadness for me and joy akin to winning the lottery for Edy.

Though she posed happily for her first photos in her bed, the initial night did not go well. After getting up several times and receiving several scoldings and reminders that "big girls stay in their beds" my sweet E.J. ended up back in her crib. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. It was awful.

However, Daddy's insistence on her obedience paid off, she got the idea, and night #2 and each night since have proven much more peaceful.

We have some wonderfully generous folks from church who let us come use their pool whenever we want. They have actually scolded me several times for calling first to ask if it's okay.

So last week, Lindsey, Caleb, Angela, Paxton, Erica, Kins, and me and Edy finally managed to rendezvous at the Whitehouses.' It was delightful.

On a side note, Pax appears to be channeling Popeye the Sailor Man in this shot. Classic.
