Big Girl Bed and HOPE!


Eliana has ALWAYS loved her baby bed....she has spent hundreds of hours jumping and playing in it!! She can get in and out of it, but she has always preferred to just stay in. Last night she started walking on the railing like a tight rope walker....so, we knew it was time to change her bed into a day bed. I'm not going to lie; it was kind of emotional. Our little baby isn't a baby anymore....she is 3. CRAZY! She will probably stay up until 3 am playing with all of her toys....and I know the room will be a disaster. ANY TIPS?!! Do y'all lock the toys up at night?? She doesn't like to sleep, so this could be very interesting.

On another note, thank you "Babycircus" for directing me to the blog Lyme Bytes. The Lord knew that I needed this so much right now. The lady that writes on the blog does a national prayer conference call every other week for people suffering with Lyme disease. Chris and I decided to join the call last night. We spent an hour in prayer with hundreds of other people going through the same thing as me. It brought me so much HOPE!! The pain has really been so intense the last two days....I am praying that means the medicine is killing the lyme. I don't feel alone in this anymore. Thank you Jesus!!

Love you all,
Lindsey

I know what you mean about it being emotional. We changed Joshua's into a bed because he was getting in and out of his crib. The funny thing is that he apparently wasn't emotionally ready. He went from sleeping all night to waking up in the night. We had to switch it back for now. Secretly, I didn't mind. :) I don't have any advice for you, but I hope others do because eventually I will need it! (All of our others just stayed in their beds until we told them to get up)

how awesome that you have found so great connections that help you, I tell you blogs really amazing things.
Well I don't have much advice, I only took Maya out of her crib when she turned 3, just because she was 3 and it seemed like it was time, we turned it into a day bed as well, but she knows she is absolutley not allowed to get out of bed and so she doesn't, well once or twice Ithink just to try it out, but for safety reasons I want her to be in, we don't have video in her room just a monitor. Good Luck!

Lindsey,
I did not know that you have Lyme disease. I am so sorry!! I have a friend from high school who has had it for a while and has become an expert. You HAVE to talk to her. She is on FB and her name is Polly Austin Noonan. It is crazy because y'all have a lot in common - Guatemalan princess, hubby in full time ministry etc. Please contact her!

I am so glad that you have found a support group to help you guys walk this road!! You know you have my prayers (along with many others).
