Great Big Bed

This week-end, Zach (with the help of our dads) took another step in preparing for Peanut's arrival.  He and my dad painted the nursery and moved furniture from Staley's room into the nursery.  Then his dad joined in the fun on Sunday for assembling Staley's new furniture.  While this work was being accomplished, Staley and I got out of the way by spending all day Saturday with cousin Liam (and family), Saturday night at my parent's house, and most of the day Sunday with my parents.

Bedtime stories with Grandpa

Staley knew that we were away from home so that Daddy could get her big girl room ready.  Staley talked all week-end about how Peanut will sleep in her crib and she will sleep in a "great big bed."  We walked into the house on Sunday afternoon and, as soon as Staley saw Zach, she asked, "Is my bed ready yet?"  And oh, the excitement!!!  Staley laid on her great big bed and jumped on her great big bed and played on her great big bed and talked about her great big bed.  When we were all on her bed reading bedtime books before sleep, Staley couldn't stop giggling.  She went right to sleep and slept all night long in her great big bed.  And, despite some fear on my part, Staley is peacefully napping on her great big bed as I type this.  So far, the transition to her great big bed has been exciting for Staley...and successful for all!
