A weekend of big FIRSTS!

We’ve had quite the weekend over here at the Callister’s.

Summer got her hair did for the first time!DSC_1170

She got to sit in a pink car and watch Elmo’s World. Does it get any better for a 2 year old than this?? As you can see she was riveted and could not tear her eyes off the screen for a picture. Needless to say, she did great and now has a head full of glitter that will not wash out. Why did I say yes to that crap???? Lesson learned. DSC_1181

Summer also graduated from her crib to a big girl bed! This bed kind of fell into the “Santa Claus” category: fun to talk about and look at, but not fun to get too close to. She warmed up to it after a day or so and tonight went to sleep in it for the first time. She cried for about 15 minutes but then fell asleep. I peeked in on her a few minutes ago and she was passed out with her legs hanging over the railing a little bit. I will admit that I got a little teary eyed while I was moving her things into her new room. My little girl is growing up!! How did this happen??? DSC_1192

And this little runt had her first too! She got her grub on with her first taste of rice cereal today. She gobbled it right up and did great. She still didn’t sleep any better for me though, the stinker. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow… DSC_1187

Speaking of tomorrow , we’re supposed to get like a foot of snow in the next couple of days. Yippee. We’ll be homebound so maybe we’ll come up with some more firsts!

Have fun with that foot of snow. We get RAIN all week. Which, frankly, I'll take! ;-)

Stay warm!

Yay for Summer in the Big Girl Bed! Sounds like she did pretty good. I love the haircut :-)

Karen...please keep us posted on how Summer does staying in her bed. I am fascinated by this subject! Good luck. :)

I remember when we moved Lucas to a big boy bed-and though it was needed as he was climbing out of his crib, it was just so sad and he seemed so little in his big bed... It goes fast

We are 3. said...

Is it just me or does Summer look like she's 18 in those pictures?!

Where did you get her hair cut? Madie is obsessed with Elmo, great idea hair cut place (Elmo birthday theme all the way this year)! How is Summer doing in her big girl bed? Does she sleep through the night?
