Goodbye Dear Swing

It's bittersweet to see this swing leave our house..the purge has begun! Both my girls would take their naps in this swing, Avery until she was 4 months old and Ella until she was almost 3 months old. It was my trusted friend while they were infants! I always knew that once they started swinging they would take a good nap - they LOVED swinging and sleeping! I remember when Avery didn't want to be in it anymore and I was so nervous that she would never sleep in her crib. Ella, I didn't worry as much, she is my 2nd of course :)

The swing has been sitting up in her game room for the past several months waiting for a new home and I've been meaning to give it to a Women's Shelter but I just haven't been able to get over there and it's kind of on it's last leg. After being used by 2 kiddos, sometimes it would just stop swinging and you would have to give it a quick push to get it going again.

Avery's teacher's daughter is coming in town next week with her 3-month old baby girl and she asked if I had a swing that I wasn't using anymore that she could borrow, and Voila, it's found a new home. After she leaves, her teacher is going to give it to a shelter for someone else to use before it stops working completely.

Thanks so much swing for making our lives that much easier with our babies!! I would have paid anything for this swing that's how great it made our lives when they were infants :)
