Guess which one got herself a new bed?
In keeping with her personality. She decided one day that no one was allowed to help her get in or out of her crib but rather "I'll do it by myself". And because she was not big enough to get herself over the bar there was much screaming and kicking. So Mommy and Daddy decided to make it easier for everyone.
At least we thought it would be easier for everyone.....
The first night was - well, not so easy for any of us. After much difficulty staying IN the bed and not getting up to get every single animal in the room. She fell into a restless sleep only to wake up 3 hours later to scream, cry and carry on about EVERYTHING. Her covers were not "big" enough, and her animals were not covered right, her passy was not the right color, and it wasn't "squeaking" (this is where Daddy puts water on the passy and it squeaks while she sucks on it - yeah, I know...), and on and on for 2 hours. Here was the thing I really did not understand. After losing so much sleep her little internal alarm still went off at 7:00am. Why did I ever think it was a good idea.
Last night however was a dream - Sweet, restful, happy slumber for everyone. Mommy went out and bought a REALLY big blanket and we showed her where to put her animals, the new Dora sheets may have helped. Sometimes growing up is hard..
But it's pretty fun too.....
