Big girl Bed!

We made the plunge 2 days ago and converted Delainey's crib into a toddler bed. (we basically just took off one of the sides. I was dreading this moment especially since she is so young and such a wild woman. I was left with no choice though as she tried to climb out of the crib again 3 days ago. So on Tuesday, we cleaned her room of anything harmful, secured the bookshelf to the wall, turned the door handle around so I could lock her in, and put pillows on the side of the crib in case she fell out. She was so excited to play in her big girl bed. She kept jumping up and down saying "no more monkeys jumping on the bed." Then the dreaded bed time came. She wasn't very tired, so we did our normal bedtime routine of bath, book, and milk then we laid her in bed and locked the door. She cried at the door for a good 20-30 minutes and then walked back to her bed and fell asleep. She didn't make a peep and slept like a gem till 8 am the next morning.

Last night, I laid in bed with Delainey until she fell asleep so there were no tears shed. She did, however, get up and go to the door, laid down and slept by the door for about an hour, and rolled off the bed and slept on the pillows on the floor. But despite all of that she didn't cry at all and slept till 8 am again. Today, she crawled into bed for nap time and went right to sleep. I don't know what all this anxiety was about because clearly my girl is not so little and is ready to be in a big girl bed! I am so glad we have such a good sleeper. Now can time stop before my little girl gets any older :(
