Of Beds and Bows

We finally bit the bullet and bought a full-size crib. When Anna was born, we were living in a small 1 bedroom apartment in Provo and didn't have any room for a full-size crib, so she slept in this port-a-crib in our bedroom.

Then when we moved to Texas, we just let her sleep in it until we moved her up to a toddler bed. So David has been using the same port-a-crib up until a couple weeks ago. When we started finding him in the mornings flipped over, turned around, and arms and/or legs through the bars, it was time to upgrade. I guess we got lucky that Anna wasn't a mover in her sleep like David is!
Here's our new crib in all its glory.

David approves.

Even with the additional room, we still find him like this in the morning...

Maybe he'd be more comfortable if we got bedding that actually looks like it's for a boy. I'm not fully admitting that he mostly sleeps with pink and purple sheets still since that's all we own in a full crib size. Ok, fine, maybe I am. One thing at a time. Cute boy bedding has been low on the priority list as we're setting up home here. Sorry, baby David. It's only a crib sheet, right? At least it's not like I'm putting hairbows on him...

Ok, maybe I DO like to use him as a model for the baby headbands I made for a friend's baby shower a month ago. Poor kid. He might be in for some therapy later in life.
At least Daddy makes a good model too...

Don't you just love a good blackmail shot?

:D I like the way you think.

Love the new crib. He looks like he's sleeping very peacefully--completely unaware that he's on girl colors.

p.s. Sometimes Randy wears purple shirts or pink ties and he's got a secure gender identity. I think you might be okay.
