So, it finally happened here at the Reynolds Nation. We put it off as long as we could. Judah moved over to the big boy race car bed!!!! He is the oldest of any of our kids who was still in a crib. Our firstborn, Bryn, was 18 months old when we moved her over. We couldn't wait, we were so excited to have her grow up a bit. And the other kids moved over easily, because there was another baby on the way to take over the spot in the crib. But not with our Judah. He is 3 1/2 years old. We waited as long as we could...it's so much easier to keep them in the crib. Until yesterday and he hopped right out of it...in 10 seconds flat. So, it's the end of easy bed times for us. Now, we have adjust him to staying in his new bed. The first night was easy, but I think it's just because he was afraid to get out. So, our crib is not in use for the first time in 9 years. All my kids used my crib (bought very inexpensively at Service Merchandise, which is no longer around), and it's still in great condition. It's hard for this mommy. My baby is growing up quickly. It makes me a bit sad!

Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
