We decided to introduce the toddler bed Saturday afternoon. After an exhausting day and much later than usual bed time, we weren't sure if we should even try that night. But she was so excited we gave it a try. Here she wad getting lotioned up and ready for bed. She couldn't wait!!
We did her usual routine, bible story, 3 books, prayer, and her 5 songs we sing to her. Tucked her in and done! She curled up and went to sleep! We sat outside of her room watching her on the monitor just in awe of how big our baby girl is! (& maybe a little sad at the same time...)
She slept through the night but woke up at 6:30 am scared and crying. This was about an hour earlier than usual for her. She sat in her bed until we came up to get her. All day she was extremely tired so we did nap in the crib and she slept for 3.5 hours!!
Last night we put her to bed on time and although she tossed and turned for a long time she never got out! Eventually she fell asleep. At 2:30 am she fell out of the bed and needed a few minutes of comfort but went back to sleep.
This morning she and I had to be at church for VBS at 7:30 so o had to go in at 7 & wake her up!! This is what I found...
I had to turn on the lights for the picture and she didn't even move!! So sweet! Now, nap today was tough so she ended up sleeping in the crib. BUT I feel like we are making progress and I'm super proud of my big girl!!
