From crib to big girl bed

Potty training has been in both mine and Will’s minds. We have had some successful potty moments with Lily and have been talking a lot about it on our own and with her.

In order to bring in the ultimate “big girl” moment (going to the potty and letting go of diapers), we decided on sunday to change her crib into a “big girl” bed. (ok, seriously, how did this happen since i feel like just the other day she was 2 months old and going from the bassinet to the crib)

Sunday night Lily crawled into bed all by herself (excited) and went to sleep like usual.

At 6:30am monday morning, Will and I were woken up by Lily’s cry because she fell out of the bed. Ooops. (lol)

At 3:30am tuesday morning, she walked into our room saying “mommy” and scared Will to death because he forgot she could now get out of bed by herself. (lol)

At 7am (usual wake up time) wednesday morning, Lily walked into our room with Pooh, Eyore and Abby in tow and said “play-doh!”. She was up and ready to play.

Lily loves the fact that she can now get into and out of bed whenever she wants. We love the fact that at least either Will or I can now snuggle in her bed with her while reading a book.

Hope potty training goes just as smoothly but I doubt it. (i’m really dreading it btw)

Here’s a picture of her new “big girl” bed.
