Dear Cot, thanks a million you’ve been a good friend. My step up from a Moses Basket you helped my mummy no end.
Your bars kept me safe and away from harms reach. Even the thought of escaping I never did teach. My cot protected me and kept me lovely and warm. All tucked up in a ‘gro bag’ after I was born.
My mummy remembers laying me down at night, adjusting my legs so I was positioned just right. And rubbing my back when I was unsettled and crying. And watching my breathing, I was so small there’s no denying.
I’ve grown so much in these past three years, I could have stayed in my cot – I had no arrears. But now I’ve been evicted and it’s time that I make the transition, I hope it doesn’t put my folks in an awkward position.
With no bars to keep me contained during the night, they hope I don’t appear in their room and give them a fright. Waking them up from their slumber with a whispering ‘mummy’. It seems strange that at night-time I will be free to be funny.
And now I’ve got a big girl bed to rest my weary little head. I snuggle up in my duvet cover and read books with my mother. I love my new big girl bed and prefer much more than the other. So ‘goodbye’ to my wooden brown cot, my mummy will miss you lots and lots.
Another chapter of our life together has ended and another has started we’re all excited about this item which has departed.
Goodbye cot… ‘ello big girl bed.
Love Bella X

Awww well done on making the transition to your big girls bed! 🙂 #twinklytuesday
Thanks! It’s still early days but I’m enjoying staying put in my room 🙂
Aww Blake has a cot and toddler bed in one I’m going to find it strange when we have to take the bars off eventually
I missed the containment factor on the cot when we moved, but needs must, if I had my way I would have kept him in there forever! #TwinklyTuesday
Haha! My mummy too! I never climbed out and now she has released me!! Mwahahahaaa
Ah what a milestone and a lovely ode. I am sure she will love her new big girl bed, Baby did x
awww! I hate that they have to grow up :p (and now they are in big beds they can escape and run wild :p )
Oh wow, so much has changed in such a short space of time. It seems like 5 minutes ago my twin nephews were born and now they both have their own beds x
Aw well done you are growing up now and before you know it you will be a grown up!
Maybe I should have waited until 3…my girlie was in her bed at less than 2 years and she was one who LOVED to get out 🙂 Hope all goes well and what a lovely milestone xx #twinklytuesday
What a lovely milestone! Enjoy your new big girl bed x #TwinklyTuesday
Awww, the transition to big girl bed! Looks like she’s taken to it with no problem. My daughter has the same Frozen bedding!
Your daughter has great taste! 😉
A big move Bella, lovely photos and fond memories but onwards and upwards! #TwinklyTuesday
Aww, a big milestone! My son has been in a bed for about six months now and it does feel like a big change at first. I think he adjusted quicker than us though lol! Thanks for sharing #bloggerclubuk
Aww this is so cute. Its such a bog thing when they move out of their cot and they aren’t a baby anymore!
Awww, I hope she stays in her big girls bed for you. Sebby was out of his at 18months
Aww – so cute! Glad the new bed is a success! Toddler went into a bed when she’d just turned 2 & she’s behaved really well so far. Not sure Baby will when she comes out of a cot! #twinklytuesday
What a lovely big girl bed! Well done on getting her in there 🙂 – love the Frozen bedding! x BloggerClubUK

Oh how cute! I LOVED moving to my big bed – but because it meant I shared a bedroom with my big brother. Ickle Pickle x
Ah I love this! She looks so happy in her new bed. We have just gone from toddler bed to single, what a wrench. I hope you don’t get too many nocturnal visits – we put a stair gate over the door! xx #coolmumclub
Ahhh this is so sweet! Congrats on the big girl bed. Our daughter moved into her big girl bed last month. They look so tiny in the big bed for awhile! Thanks for sharing with #bloggerclubuk xx
This is sweet. We’ll be making the transition in the next couple weeks and I can only hope that it goes as smoothly for us as it did for you.
Thank Cora xx good luck with the transition x
