so we thought it fitting that one year later, she earns another milestone. her “big bed”. (it even snowed just a little bit this past week as well!)
as with anything about jovie, this could’ve gone either way. she was perfectly happy in her crib, and the only reason why we’re moving her on already is because she’s outgrown the portacrib. so we know we can’t travel until we get her transitioned. (maybe that’s not true, but i can’t imagine teaching her how to sleep in a sleeping bag when she’s never had “freedom” before)
she was with me last week when i picked up her bedding, and from wednesday on she was suuuper excited! but Gramma & Grampa came to visit on friday, and Daddy came home on friday. we didn’t think it would be a smart idea to let her first night in her bed be while we had company.
so sunday morning, Dad took the side off of her crib and we set everything all up. and she spent no less than 20 minutes getting in and out and under the covers and sitting up and laying down (on a pillow!) and just excited giddiness.
and even our difficult-to-warm-up-to-new-situations child was awesome when it came time for the actual nap. and the bedtime. (and currently napping as well!)
she is so very excited about her new bed. and, wow. what a little girl she is!
i told The Mr. that i’m contemplating buying the same bedding in twin-size for when she graduates again. there’s actually a purple one that i may just have to grab. doesn’t it look so very little-lady-ish?
