Bedtime and a new Family member

You have been in a toddler bed (converted crib) since October of last year when your dad was simply bored and decided (unilaterally) that converting the crib into a bed, while mom was travelling, would be a fun project (Dad posted about it here). 

A few weeks back, the bilateral decision making part of bed transitioning was again pre empted, this time by the simple fact that since Oct you have grown over 4 cm, something that was painfully (and a little funnily) obvious when I walked into your bedroom and saw this...

Yep, you are completely asleep!

Realizing this bed was no longer a decent fit, we set out to find a standard size bed that you would like. We visited many stores and at each one as soon as you saw a bed that appeared interesting, you took off your shoes and hopped on to try it out.  Eventually, we decided to have one made and here it is...

The new bed has changed the geography of your room,

to which you have adapted quite well

 You also have adapted beautifully to sleeping with more room to move.

So here´s to one more milestone to celebrate :)

This weekend we also visited Fio and Mau, to happily meet Amelia who was born just last week.

You were very excited to meet and play with her. Plus, she is the first baby you are able to carry at such a tender age.

Dad and Abuelita Vera helped you out the first time and I have to say you were quite in awe.

You tried it a couple of times more and were very surprised she would not play with the rattle you picked out for her.

Seeing your level of interest and tenderness is very encouraging to us. 

Today I am grateful for one more sign that you are growing up and that we were able to welcome a beautiful new member to our family.
