Big Girl Bed!

DSC_0815

Landree has officially been sleeping in a big girl bed for 3 weeks. After Angie and Maggie left we decided to go ahead and take her baby bed down and put her toddler bed in her room. We knew we wanted to make the transition before we have the baby, but I wasn't sure when to do it. Landree would still wake up at night every once in a while and when we would go into check on her she would cling to us and never wanted to get back into bed.

She has done fantastic! We told her not to get out of bed that we would come and get her when she wakes up. She has not gotten out of bed yet! Even at nap time! I put her toy bag on the side of the bed and filled it with books. She will sit and read before her nap and then I can hear her reading when she wakes up. Angie got her a Peter Rabbit book for Easter and I can hear her talking about Peter and the other rabbits and the kitty in the book. When I go into to get her she will say, "mommy, I not get up!" and of course I praise her! One day she dropped her kitty off her bed and she was stretching and reaching for it. She said I reach...I reach, but she didn't get out of bed. YEA! I am so glad she's done so well with this transition. Now we just need to focus on potty training. Ugh...

Way to go, Landree! I love her little toddler bed! I hope it continues to go well. Kamree transitioned so easy. Carson, on the other hand, was a complete nightmare!

Yeah for Landree! I am looking on Craigslist for a toddler bed for Judah so I can make the switch. Hopefully he'll adjust as quickly!

I've been behind in keeping up with your blog, but I can't believe you are about to find out what you are having! Time really does fly! And, I'm so excited that you are getting showings on your house so quickly. It's really exciting! Landree is doing so well in her big girl bed! I can't believe she wouldn't even get out to pick up her kitty! That's awesome!
