Where Did My Baby Go?

Over the last two weeks my baby has turned into such a big girl. I feel like I blinked and almost all remnants of my baby disappeared. All that I have left is the last "nurt" session before bed, and even that is getting shorter and shorter by the night.

Potty training
We are now up to 9 days with no accidents. Diapers are only worn at bedtime (and we've had 2 dry mornings), even naptime is in big girl underwear. We made the 2 hour trip to and from Grandpa's this weekend without any problem and she even used the big toilet in Trader Joe's while we were shopping. She doesn't even need reminders from me anymore. I guess she was really just waiting for the right potty, and the pink one was it!

Big Girl Bed
We had a few issues with the big girl bed the first night. She got up and called us from the top of the stairs a few times, then we heard her playing with her toys. It probably took about an hour to finally get her to sleep. I was starting to regret taking the crib out of her room, especially when she fell out of the bed at 3am. But she has no problems since. She has continued her naps, and goes right to sleep without getting up (although she always tried to get me to lay down with her first). And she hasn't fallen out since the first night.

A few pictures from her first night in the new bed.

We were sold the wrong rails with the bed, but didn't discover it until we set it up and it's too late to take it back. We're going to have to paint the wood rails white. Also, the box spring is on the floor instead of on the slats and mattress on top of that so that it isn't too high off the floor.

It didn't take her very long to start jumping on the bed.

It's so sweet!! DO NOT tell Buby about her jumping on the bed. He hasn't figured that out yet. Thank goodness, b/c his is really high of the ground now. Congrats on the potty training. I'm so proud of her... of all of these little kiddos who made just big jumps in the recent months. Buby really has given up naps in his bed unless we lay with him or he falls asleep somewhere else and we transfer him, but that's okay... b/c he sleeps really well at night and that is priceless to us.

Isn't it amazing how quickly a 2 year old SLEEPING child learns not to roll over and fall out of bed.

I love your new bed Princess. I can't wait to come and read you bedtime stories in it.

Hugs, Nana

Oh my goodness, how fast the time goes. Just reading about LP makes me want to stop time with Chloe. I can't wait to share all of these moments with her, but I know I will miss the "baby" moments when they are gone. Bittersweet, isn't it?

AND, 9 days without an accident! Whoo-hoo!!!

I love the bed! It's so perfect for a little lilypad princess. Yay for potty training, too!
