Transition ...

As you can imagine, we're transitioning and preparing for Baby Cain #2! Catherine Ellis is doing her fair share of transitioning and we are preparing in the coming weeks to move her to her big girl room. This is a move that is bittersweet for Mommy and Daddy - we can't imagine that she is big enough to sleep in a bed, not a crib, a bed - really?? But, in true fashion - she's shown us twice now that she is ready to make the move ....

Hard to tell in the pic, but a rather large goose-bump on the left-hand side of her head

That's right - we have a jumper folks! Catherine Ellis has decided in the past week that she likes to jump out of her crib. Some of this is our fault - her crib has been on the second level since she was old enough to pull up - 7-8 months or so - and she's never ever acted like or tried to jump ship .... until this week. So, needless to say - the first thing Daddy did when he got home last Sunday was lower the crib to the lowest setting.

Low rider crib .... doesn't look that far down from the picture - but it is!

This is a transition and challenge for us all - especially me. I could barely put her in the crib on level two - at this level its next to impossible. So, the coming weeks until Catherine Ellis's big girl room is ready will be interesting since I typically put her down. Baby Sister is growing like a weed - 7 1/2 months/30 weeks this week and makes it pretty difficult for me to bend over the railing and lower Catherine Ellis into the crib ....

Mama and Baby Cain 2 at 30 weeks!

Stay tuned as we continue to prepare for sweet baby girl 2's arrival!
