After daydreaming of Grace's wild adventures, it dawned on me that the next step for this little escapee is a toddler bed. I know I've got a while before I actually have to go out and get one, but what better time than now to get nostalgic about the first time we laid Grace in her crib and how far from those days we are now.
Once I get in a nostalgic mood, I'm hard pressed to find my way out. After getting Grace down for a nap in her freshly lowered crib, I found some old pictures of our first few days together. Amazingly, I'd never seen these ones, but love them to death
It is hard to believe how far we've come. Grace has grown to be such an independent little girl; it's hard to believe she was ever this tiny. Fortunately, Ryan and I are like the paparazzi and are constantly snapping photos. It is comforting to know that the days of newborn babies and tiny little clothes are never too far away. For comparisons sake, here is a shot from Grace's nap this afternoon :)
