This is Kaitlin "helping" Daddy construct the new bed:
Kaitlin with a drill - (YIKES, be careful!!!!)
The first night in her new bed actually went very well. Around midnight I heard a "thud" and then some crying. Kaitlin fell out of her bed! When we went in, it was actually kind of cute ~ she was standing there holding her covers, crying, and looking lost. We just tucked her back into bed, and she fell right back asleep. The same thing happened around 6:00 am. Then, we didn't hear from her until 11:30~! YES, 11:30 AM! She slept almost 13 hours! That is a record, for sure! Last night she slept from 9:30 PM until 9:30 AM this morning! 12 hours! (Hahaha... had I known she would sleep like this, we would have made the switch months ago.)
She seems very excited about her new bed. Everytime she sees it, she goes running to it and jumps in. Sometimes she asks to go to bed when it's not even bedtime!
Within the next couple months we will move her to a twin-sized bed.... I'm hoping the transition will go just as smoothly!
