oh, no she didn't!!

Oh yes she did!! This afternoon, Fiona decided she wasn't taking a nap. She was up playing and talking in her crib for awhile having a grand ole time - or so I thought. While I was indisposed in the potty, I hear a little thud - I wait for the cry, but nothing. Then I hear what sounds like little footsteps. And as I finish up and go running up the stairs who meets me halfway? FIONA!!! The girl has never even tried to climb out of her crib nor does she have much luck in opening the doors. But today - luck was on her side. She climbed out of the crib, opened the door and started coming down the stairs. What is so funny is that she totally acted like this was nothing new, just what she does!!

So we have a big weekend ahead of us to Child proof her room, convert the crib to a toddler bed and hope she stays in bed when we put her in there!! Amazing, I thought I had another year or so before we needed to do this!! What's next? Potty training? Talking in full sentences? School, Prom, College Graduation, Marriage and grandkids!!!!!!!!YIKES!! Ok, maybe I am getting a little ahead of myself here. But my baby is growing up, what a crazy combo of emotions, pride, joy and sadness all rolled into one.

Wowsers! I don't want to be there... not now. They grow up too fast. I can't even believe how fast time flies. And, here comes another birthday for Fiona this spring! May I bless you with tons of patience doing the "stay in bed routine". My brother in law counted 72 times of taking his kid back to bed in one night. It will happen, with time and patience.

Lord, grant me the strength to change the things I can, the serenity to except the things I can't, and the wisdom to know the difference. hahahahaha

Oh my gosh, you summed it up for me... it's true, the emotional ride is awful. Some moments you can't wait for them to get a little bigger, then they do and you just want to cry! Thanks for sharing!
