Anna's New Big-Girl Bed

Transitioning Anna from crib to twin-sized bed happened out of the blue. We've had the bed for a few months now and had always asked her if she wanted to sleep in it. She responded with a "no" each time...until last night when she surprised us with an enthused "yes". So after successfully sleeping in the bed overnight and again for her nap, I don't think Anna is going back to her crib again!

She's such a big girl now!

We are going to wait a while before moving Will to the crib, though. Having him sleeping in the same room with us is more convenient and besides, I don't think Anna would like it if she sees Will taking over the crib immediately.

Aside from the bed, Anna's room is bare. I never made any further progress after I first wrote about it back in June. Mommy fail. But now that she's actually sleeping in the room, I am looking forward to getting the rest of the room set up.

  3. they look so tiny in those big beds, don't they? We just purchased L a mattress this afternoon, getting ready to convert her crib to big bed over the holidays!

  5. @ Dorkys: I think we would have let her stay in the crib a bit longer if it wasn't for Will. But luckily, we never forced her...she kind of decided on her own. The bedding? All picked out by my husband. I am not good at decorating at all.

  6. I don't even think she needs that guard rail thingy either. I tucked that quilt in so tight that once she's under it, she can only slip out from the right side - and that only leads to the wall. Oh well, better safe than sorry. Still, it was cool hearing her walk out of her room, through the unlatched gate (will need to rectify that next time) and over into our room last nite. Changes...

  7. Hello! I am working on a book development project. I am writing a children's book about the transition from crib to "big kid bed." I am looking for photographs to use in my book, and I really like the photos you have posted to your blog of your daughter asleep in her new bed. I am writing to ask if you would be willing to give me rights to use the photograph in my book. I will need permission to use it for commercial use. Please let me know if you have questions about the content of the book. Thank you!
