Growing Up Too Damned Fast

This should NOT be happening. When did my little girl get this big?

Don't tell me she isn't watching Mom & Dad around the house:

Mommy took this picture of our pretty little girl before heading to worship Sunday morning:
And here are the pictures that provide the occasion for pondering - Ainsley moved into her "big girl bed" tonight:

That's the sign for "bed" she's giving Mommy:

"Daddy, stop snoring!"

Thankfully, the transition seems to be going well thus far. Here she is, thirty minutes after bedtime:

Now, if you don't mind, I'll just be over here in the corner, pondering the relentless march of time. Oh, and my evening beer. :-)


  1. It does happen fast. I can't help you with that. But you have my sympathy.

  2. transitions all around! i was pondering parenting the other day... oy! and part of me really feels that uhm yeah, "calling" - and then i reach for another glass of wine and the moment passes...

    your house is just gonna get busier and busier my friend!

  3. My wife and I were talking about the need for a big girl bed for our big girl. She is ready; we are not...

    If it were up to me, she would still be in our room, along with her little brother and the basset hound.
