Big Girl Bed

Gary & I have put a lot of thought into transitioning Libby to a Toddler bed. We finally decided that even though her crib is a convertible one, we would rather get new furniture and keep her "baby" furniture in storage for a while. We decided that Libby was getting ready to try out her own "big girl" bed after spending the last 4 nights away from home and out of her crib. Here, Libby helps her Daddy put together her new bed.
We are going to be re-doing Libby's room and moving her to another bedroom in the house. We have agreed on a theme and will go from there (Nonna doesn't know it, but she is going to be helping with making the bedding and curtains!) Since we are not sure how she'll do with this move, we have decided to move the toddler bed into her room next to her crib for a while to get her adjusted. Last night after we got it set up, she laid down and said..."Night, Night, Momma". We let her play around and get comfortable with it. And "play around" she did! She must have climbed in and out of that thing 100 times! Finally, we said our good nights, put up the baby gate in the doorway (so if she woke up, she wouldn't roam around the house) and she fell right asleep. We checked on her a few hours later to find....
...her 1/2 in and 1/2 out of the bed. Gary put her back in and she did fine until about 3:00 AM when Gary went to check on her and she was all of the way on the floor. She couldn't have fallen out or we would have heard her and she would have cried...right? So we are hoping for another successful night tonight. She went right asleep and when we just checked on her we saw.......Libby & Boo Bear sleeping on the floor. Back into the bed and fingers crossed for a night in the bed tonight!



So funny where you found her each time. Kayla was a year old when we moved her and for awhile she chose to sleep on the floor.

Awww! What a big girl she is getting to be. I bet she did fall out and was just sleeping hard.
