the bassinet mary slept in from her first night home until 2 weeks ago is not new.  it's been in the dennis family for over 60 years.  it's had many fresh coats of paint and has cradled many many sweet babies- including my dad, mary's "pops."  i love that she was able to use it and sleep in it until she just couldn't quite fit anymore.  she, thankfully, made the transition to her crib easily.  i do miss her being so close to me at night but as you can see below- she was out of room!

first day home... her feet/legs stop in the middle of the bed.

a few days after the transition to her crib... she's stretched out with her feet at the bottom of the bed.
