Misc. Monday: Big Girl Bed




Our little girl is growing up. We got Lilly a twin bed over Christmas vacation, thinking we would need the 2 weeks to teach her to stay in it and not get up. Books tell you that this transition can be hard, so I felt prepared and ready to attack this new challenge head-on. Little did I know that Lilly was ready, beyond ready. She took her 1st nap in it with no problem (I even stayed home from running errands, just in case). That night, I went in to check on her and accidentally woke her up by fixing her blankets. She sat up and said, "So proud. I'm so proud of you!" I gave her a kiss and I had to smile as I walked back out of her room. Those were the last words I told her when we said good night! She is amazing. She has since fallen out only once (we moved the rail higher). Story time and prayers are much comfier now because I get to lay in bed with her and now every time she sees her crib, she calls it, "Iris' bed." Maybe she won't need much adjusting time to a sister either! Knowing her, she's ready...
