Big girl bed!

Well I wasn't planning on doing the "big" switch until summer time but yesterday I was rearranging her room and thought, "I am going to do it!" I thought it was going to easy but it turned out to be a little harder than expected. After an hour and 1/2 it was done! At first I heard "Thank you mama" over and over as she climbed in and out of it but as soon as I put her babies in it she yelled "NO NO baby bed" and started throwing them out! I thought "oh no, what did I just do?!?" We talked a lot about it being her big girl bed and that she is a big girl!!
The true test was at nap time. I laid her down, closed her door and watched on the monitor as she got up many times. I heard her playing and a few sounds but for the most part she did stay quiet. About 30 minutes later she climbed back into the bed and went to sleep!! It was a success! Her room did look like somewhat of a disaster after nap time was over but I was so glad she did it!!
Bedtime went about the same expect she only got up once and was asleep within 10 minutes. When I went in this morning after she woke up, I noticed she had put a book in bed with her. She must have just wanted to read "one more" =)

Big girl sleeping in her bed!

** update** Night time #2 she did not get out of bed once!! She went right to sleep =)


  1. WOW! I'm so impressed...we haven't even thought of going to a big girl bed yet.

  2. I am very impressed too! She has done wonderful!! Just took that 1 day to adjust a little but she has been awesome ever since!
