In the meantime, I decided to take a baby step and remove some of the baby stuff from a shelf in his room. I took down the newborn picture of us kissing him, a sweet picture of him by himself in a baseball cap, his first bath and the signature frame of all the people who visited him in the hospital. I replaced all of those frames with more recent pictures that don't seem so "babyish."
I did all of that with no tears so maybe taking the crib down won't bother me too much! Yeah, right!!!
