at first i just had sheets and the crib quilt on samantha's new bed, but i found the cutest bedspread at walmart and i couldn't resist. when i got it put on her bed samantha climbed up and looked at the bed and said, "ooohhhh tute!" (tute = cute) she LOVES her bed. bed time has been so easy (knock on wood). she snuggles in and goes right to sleep. derek and i have been wondering how uncomfortable her crib mattress must have been?! nap time has been a bit of a challenge. about every 3rd day she lays down and goes right to sleep, but the other days i can count on her getting up about 30 minutes after laying there. she's decided that's a good time to do her "stinky business". so when i hear her get up i go change her diaper and then lay her back down. she'll usually go to sleep after that. and really...if that's all i have to complain about i think we are doing excellent!!!
switching topics just a bit...i got samantha ready for the day then watched her walk down the stairs, and it hit me, she is growning up so fast. she's seemedto stay in the baby phase for a long time, but the past few week she's changed. she is the funniest little girl, and even though it's sad when your kids grow up it's alot of fun!!
