How big? So big!

For a few weeks now Haley has been sleeping in her crib in her own room. I have kept the bassinet near our bed just in case she needs it, like when she had a cold last week and I wanted her near me so I could help her when her nose got too stuffy to breath well, or all the times I fed her in my bed and didn't want to walk back to her room to put he down.

2 nights ago I officially packed the bassinet away. It is now sitting in the attic covered in 2 trash bags, waiting for Haley's little brother or sisters to come along (or waiting for a friend who needs to borrow it).

It was time for it to go for 2 reasons. First, Haley is getting too long for it, as you can see in the pictures below. Second, There's no room for her to roll over in it.

Haley can now roll over from back to front. She had done it before but never been caught, unless it didn't count because she was on a slanted surface or placed with he arms in a helpful position. But, today I actually saw it (and caught it on film), on a flat blanket, several times, and in both directions. I'm so proud!

Haley September 14th (1 month)

November 15th (3 months)

As you can see from this trend of growth, it was time for the bassinet to go.

Aw she's growing!!

I'm proud of you for putting her in her own room. :) I'm sure it's hard to do!

I love that she's got her arm above her head in both pics! Adorable.
