Lotus Sleeps in Big Girl Bed on Monday Night !!!!!!! (July 7th)

Jumping into Bed
We kept saying every week we needed to convert Lotus' crib to a toddler bed with half rail, especially since she was starting to climb and did get her knee stuck on day in her crib slats. We finally took the plunge and switched out her crib on a Monday night. Of course Lotus was interested in what Mommy was doing to her crib and kept coming up to me and checking things out. I had piled her sleep buddies (hello kitty, glo worm, a monkey, 2 baby dolls, turtle, bunny rabbit, 2 Kung Fu Panda Po's, and her little blankie) off to the side till I was done. Once I was finished Lotus went over to the pile and started putting them in her bed. It was such a cute moment. Then it was bed time, which went quite well. We did our ritual, lotion on face, read a book (sometimes twice), turn on her music, lay her down, pull up the blanket, and place a Po under each arm. Lotus gives multiple kisses and then it is lights off! She did GREAT her first night. Here are pics of this big milestone.

And now for the photos of the morning after:


And nap time:


Lotus is doing very well with the transiton to her big girl bed. There were a few issues with nap time since the room is not as dark as it is at night. I think after a few weeks we are turning a corner. Today she actually got up in bed herself and laid down with no fuss. She is growing up so fast. It is great to see how much she has learned and grown in just 8 1/2 months. I can only imagine what she will learn next.

Enjoy the pics!

Took us a bit longer since Jace showed little interested in climbing out of the crib. We just converted is crib a week ago. He has been doing great as well. I hope Lotus continues to do well and sleep good for you. GO LOTUS!

Trish,

I forgot to mention, we do have a gate on her bedroom door so if she does get out of bed, she will not get into trouble roaming the house. And I bolted her toy rack to the wall and put drawer locks on her dresser.
