Big Girl Bed!

A Few weeks ago we transitioned from the crib to a "big girl bed". Evelyn did very well with the transition, as I thought she would. We are still working on trying to get her to sleep past 6 am, but otherwise I can't complain since she takes good naps and goes to bed good and generally sleeps through the night (sometimes she'll come into our room but I just turn her around and put her back in bed).

This is what her bed looked like, isn't it cute? That's the quilt my mom made for Evelyn and gave to her for her birthday. I love it. But...
This is what it looks like now :) Isn't it beautiful!!! I have the most amazing mother in the world! Here's the story behind this beautiful quilt: We went to Lacey over President's Day weekend and my mom showed me this gorgeous qult my sister-in-law asked her to make for her little girl. When I saw it I fell in love with it. Naturally I had to have one for Evelyn :) It's even the same fabric (Ruth, I hope you don't mind me copying you). It has the ultra cuddly and soft fabric on the back. I am so in love with it. After we got back to out house I decided I needed a pillowcase too, and isn't it just beautiful? :) My mom has a quilting machine and I think she did an AMAZING job on the whole thing. I love it so much!! Thank you mom!!!!!!

AND it gets even better...she's making one for baby number 2 also :) hehe

Mom, this pircture is just for you, Evelyn is blowing you kisses :)

I love both quilts! I think you have such good taste/style so I was flattered when your mom told me you wanted a quilt just like Marianne's. :) I love Alexander Henry fabrics. How fun that the cousins will have matching quilts!
