Being a parent is full of stages and steps. Allowing new phases to arrive and accepting that the old ones have to go. Today was one of the hardest for me - the move to a big girl bed. Maris loves her crib. She never once tried to climb out and sleeps like a champ in it. However, with another baby coming, she'd have to leave the crib behind at some point. Today was that day.

Helping Daddy take apart the crib.

The big girl room.

First night in her big girl bed!

Look at this cute little gourd shaped like a goose! This guy was hanging out near the entrance to our Inn in Amish Country.

Apple picking with a two year old:

Pick the apple.

Show off the apple.

Insist on eating the apple, right then and there.

At a picnic today, Maris was all about the bounce house. This picture isn't great, but it makes me laugh. It looks like Maris is about to body slam that other little girl, WWF style!

My good friend, Jess, was married today. Here I am with some of my teacher friends. However, this photo is mostly to celebrate my new flat iron. What took me so long to jump on that train??

Anyway, congratulations Jess and Mike!!

PS - We all survived having our first babysitters that were not my parents!

Today, my husband's family (plus my parents) participated in a run/walk to promote awareness and fund-raising for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. Johnny's sister (holding Maris) won the race in her age group!
