Big Girl Bed

Last night, Saben & Annika were laughing & screeching in their room after bedtime. They have some sort of game where they both stand up and then fall back down into their beds/cribs, dying of laughter. Then I heard Annika crying pretty hard. I ran in and she was walking around on the ground and Saben said "she fell when she was climbing out of her crib!"

So tonite we made the big move and brought in a matress we had upstairs for guests. Annika was sooooo excited. She was all grins and kept saying "Mine!" In fact, she wouldn't even let Kyle or I lay in it. So cute. And now she is asleep in her big girl bed. No crying at all and a big brother who kept telling her gently "stay in bed annika" We'll see how it goes from here, but I can't even imagine an easier, funner, sweeter first night.

Elliot tried climbing out of his crib too a couple of weeks ago, but he refuses to stay in his toddler bed, so he now sleeps in a pack'n'play...wish the transition was as easy as Annika's!

Great job Annika! I think Sylvia and Ella play the same game (as well as Sylvia climbing into Ella's bed so that they can peek outside at night). Here's for hoping my second transfers as well as yours did! And that it stays easy for you too!

I can't wait to see her in her new bed! Does she stay in bed for her naps also?

WOW what an easy transition. Evie can crawl out of her crib, but only does it when she really wants out.Otherwise she is happy just hanging out. So now that the crib is free - does that mean its time for another baby?
