Our big girl!

Ava moved to her big girl bed! I tell ya, it was a little hard for me. Just like losing her baby fat on her legs, it's one step closer to looking like a big girl and not a toddler. Makes me tear up a little. We were prepared for a few nights of whining, crying, screaming, and putting her back in bed after she got up, but she sure surprised us! The first night she cried for a little bit, but never tried to get up. After that night, she went straight to bed without fussing! Now, when it's time for bed, we ask her if she wants us to carry her, or is she going to walk like a big girl. She says "I do big girl," picks up her blanket, walks to her room and gets in bed. She never ceases to amaze us. We just hope she'll keep this up! This is a picture of her the morning after her first night. Just like her mom, she's not much of a morning person when she wakes and she's not fond of pictures before she can fix her hair. She was trying to hide her face while I was pushing a camera in front of her.
