Big Girl Bed

We are extremely lucky that in the 27-months that Addy has been alive, she's never once tried to climb out of her crib, resulting in a blow to her head or any other type of injury.  For some reason, once she's in her crib she has no interest in trying to get out.

That's not to say that she won't cry and scream and call repeatedly for Mama! to come and save her, but she won't attempt to escape.  Which is nice.

However, I'm sure there is a weight limit on the crib, not to mention her pack-n-play.  I'm pretty sure the trip for the wedding was the last time she should be allowed to sleep in the pack-n-play for safety reasons.  While we have no trips planned for the very near future, we should really work on getting her to sleep in a bed so that when we do, she's accustomed to it.

Plus, 27-months is really time to move into a big girl bed.  We probably should have done it months ago but just never did.  We've looked at beds in the past, but as usual have a hard time agreeing on what type of bed is right for her.

C wants it as low to the ground as possible to avoid her falling out of bed.  Me, on the other hand, I would love to get her a bed that has either drawers in the frame for storage or a trundle which will come in handy for guests or sleep overs.  But as long as we find a bed that works, we're not too caught up on any one detail.

We thought we found one but have you seen how expensive stupid beds can be?  The frame we liked was $250 which didn't include a mattress or anything.  Just the frame.  The lowest we've seen is about $170 with nothing included.  Craig's List isn't actually very helpful either.

And not to mention that in addition to a bed, she'll need at least a dresser if not a desk or bookshelf or night stand.  Jeez.

Regardless, either before or after we move, Addy's getting a Big Girl Bed!

PS.  Photographer said photos should be available online today!  I hope I can view them at work!  I'm SO excited!
