Transitioning to a big girl bed

The time has come....for Emily to sleep in a big girl bed.  I was always the mom who saw other kids going into big kid beds and said- NO WAY, crib for life (right Kelly?).  But when we went to Illinois a few weeks ago, we had Emily sleep on an inflatable mattress and she did so great and she really loved it!  So when we got home Steve and I started talking about re-decorating her room for her 3rd birthday and getting her a big girl bed. 

To start with the trasition to a twin bed we decided to take the front off of her crib.  She LOVED it!  So she's been sleeping in her crib like this for probably 2 weeks, maybe more, and she does really well.  We put a big padded mat next to her bed in case she ever rolls out- which she has done a couple of times- but she always goes right back to sleep.



So fast forward to this weekend.... Grandma & Grandpa graciously got Emily a big girl bed as an early birthday present and we put it together last night.  I wish I had a video of how excited Emily was- it was priceless!





She slept so great last night, barely moved at all and announced this morning that she "slept all night in her big bed!"



thanks G&G!!


How did (almost) 3 years go by so fast??

  3. I love her bed and the extra storage! Seems like several little ladies are making the transition to a big girl bed here lately, Chloe included. Way to go, E for being such a rock star in your new bed!

  5. I can't believe our toddlers are getting ready for big kid beds. I feel like we were just setting up nurseries not that long ago. I just ADORE the colors you picked for her room too. Come decorate Aiden's big boy room if I ever get brave enough to move him into a big bed! :-)
