Yesterday after church we put Eli's big boy bed up. I have to admit that of all the milestones this one was by far the hardest.
I had flashbacks to this hot, July night in 2009 when Eric and I so carefully painted a handy-me-down crib. We had no idea the journey we were about to take when we carefully selected his bedding and excitedly decorated his room in our tiny little apartment.
But the past two and a half years have been an adventure unlike any other I could have imagined. There has been so much joy, so much love, and so much delight in raising this little baby who just spent his very first night in a big boy bed!!
