Big Girl Bed for a Big Girl!

Abby decided last week that she wanted a new pillow (that's what she calls the spare bed in her room). So what she really meant was she wanted a new bed. For naps we have been putting her in the big girl bed to get her used to it and she was loving it. She apparently has been anxious to get out of her crib...but has never been able to climb out or hasn't really tried that hard. So we got her all set up for a big girl bed. The crib came down, the spare bed came out(which was a full size) and we put the twin size bed up. Steve fixed up the frame for the bed and got it all put together and hauled up to the room and then Kate took over to get all the sheets on and made it nice and cozy for a snuggly night's rest. We headed off to the store sometime in between all the moving madness to get a safety rail for the bed. One of the days that she napped on the full size bed she rolled off in her sleep...we wanted to make sure that didn't happen again. Abigail was so surprised and excited to go to bed that night so it took a few extra stories for her to settle in for the night. WOW, what a difference the bed has made for Abby's sleeping patterns. She sleeps in until almost 8....yahoo! Whew, so, Abby is growing up fast and is turning into a big girl like her cousins and all her friends! We love her to death!

congrats to Abby--I'm not ready to make that step with Olivia, yet. That's fun for her, though! :)

That's exciting news! I wish McKay still slept in a crib though! hehe! Oh well, they have to get older. She is such a cutie though! When is her b-day?

I have resorted to gating her into her room for naps now! It is so fun for her to get in and out of her bed 50 times a day. I hope it wears off next week :) Mikaela, her b-day is august 14th and she will be 2. I can't believe she will already be 2....man how fast time goes!

Wow you're brave to put her in a big girl bed already. But than again that was the one place I could keep my rowdy boys contained. :) That's so great she loves it!
