Time is not slowing down. This pregnancy is speeding by faster than I ever thought possible. I’m a mere week away from my 3rd trimester. Which means I really need to get on the ball and start preparing for this baby’s arrival. Her room needs to be painted, her crib needs to be vacated by its current occupant, and don’t even get me started on all the stuff we donated, gave away or sold that we now need to buy all over again. I really need to get my butt in gear.
A big part of the preparations for the baby involve transitioning Anna out of her crib, and her room, into her new big girl bed in what will now be Maya AND Anna’s room. We have taken the first tentative steps to get ready for the big move. Over the weekend we got the girls their new bunk bed and we even got is all set up already. Lorne put it together and I set to work on the incredibly arduous task of making the two beds. Let me just say that making a top bunk is not the easiest task in the world, but, when you add an ever expanding belly into the mix it becomes almost comical.
The only thing we are waiting on to make it all complete is their matching quilts, which have been ordered. It should look truly lovely once the new bedding is on it.
Maya is sleeping on the top bunk and loves it. The girls play on the bunk beds daily, they especially love throwing their stuffed animals off the top bunk. Anna sits on her bunk every now and then, but doesn’t really see it as hers yet since she is still sleeping in her room, in the crib.
I can’t quite bring myself to take the next step and make the transition. She still seems so little, so young. I can’t imagine her tiny little body in that great big bed just yet. I’m not quite ready for her not to be my baby anymore. So, the bed will sit there, empty for now, while I try to talk myself into making the big move.
