Bedtime for Briar

Posted on March 28, 2006

I have been remiss in not posting about Briar’s big girl bed. I gushed so over the chair that I was too exhausted to write about her first night in her very own big girl bed.

Luckily she has not tried climbing out of bed. Tomorrow we’ll try and head that eventuality off at the pass by buying a “big girl bed.” Here are a few pictures of Briar practicing her circus balancing act on her ottoman. Notice the overturned positioning of the ottoman for increased difficulty ranking of this particular feat. Third Series:Remember the Elmo thing? He’s a great travel companion.

Another overdue post.A few pictures of Briar goofing off. The last shot, with her eyes closed, is Briar giving butterfly kisses. She scrunches up her face and does exaggerated blinks to bestow these sweet kisses upon us. I’ll try and post more before the weekend is out. Enjoy.
