Maddie was ready for a big girl bed. The way she let us know was she began climbing out of her crib every time she would wake up. She never climbed out when she wasnt supposed to though only when she would just wake up. The first time she did it she had Kamrin and I laughing so hard. She had called for me when she woke up and I told her to wait just a minute so I could fully wake up. Well apparently I took to long cause I heard her door squeak a bit and thought maybe Jaydan had went into her room. After a second she poked her little head around the corner with a huge smile on her face and said "I did it all by myself!!" She was so proud of herself. The next couple times she would call for me and if I took too long for her she would climb out. Then she wouldnt even call for me anymore she would climb out as soon as she woke up. Her crib is one that can turn into a toddler bed so Kamrin made the adjustments to give her a big girl bed til we could get her a pink princess one. She has done pretty good with the transition. Of course there has been a few times we have had to battle her to stay in there and go to sleep but hey we still have to do that with Jay and he has been out of a crib for over 2 years :-)
First night in her big girl bed
Very bitter sweet moment for mommy!
