We’ve come a long way from the time Nora first started napping in her crib. Back then she was this tiny little bean who was essentially lost on the vast sleeping surface of her crib mattress. It’s even been 2 years since we first introduced her to sleeping in her toddler bed –which was really just the crib with the mattress lowered and the front more or less removed.
Now we’ve converted that bed one last time. The front of the crib makes its triumphant return and now the sides have been replaced with runners to give Nora her very own full size big kid’s bed! We’re back to “essentially lost on the vast sleeping surface”, but she still manages to fall asleep with some part of her hanging off the side.
You can still see, in this last picture, the places where baby Nora gnawed away the finish on what is now her footboard.
