Big girl bed

 A few weeks ago I decided one day that I would take the side off of the crib and make it into a toddler bed.  I have no idea why.  I just did it.  She wasn't quite two yet, but I just decided to do it.  She loved it the rest of the day.  She would run down the hall and jump right in.  Then I remembered that Rob had something that evening and I would be putting the kids down to bed on my own.  That's when I started second guessing my decision to make the switch to a big girl bed.  I began thinking back to when Sadie made the switch. 

Sadie had learned how to crawl out of her crib and it was a little bit dangerous so we switched her at about the same age.  but she would get out of bed ALL the time. 

If you want a little glimpse into our normal evening back then...just go here.  pretty funny stuff.

Although I was very nervous that our bedtimes would be just like when Sadie was young, Emery has done very well.  The first week was awesome.  For some reason she sleeps much better than she did in her crib.  One night she wandered out around 10pm and then 11pm thinking it was morning time.  But we just took her right back to bed and she went to sleep.  She sometimes doesn't stay in bed at naptime, but that is only once or twice a week.  So I'm ok with that.  She is just such a big girl!  WE love her!
