Pear and her "big girl" bed

We have made the transition! Pear is officially a big girl. She has moved into her very own big girl bed! We set it up Monday and after doing our normal routine, reading several books, rocking and singing songs, I laid her down on her big girl bed and explained how big she was just like Aunt Libbi. She was excited, pulled the sheets up to her chin and seemed satisfied. Well, about 5 minutes later, she climbed off the bed and crawled out to find me. I took her back, laid her down again and explained about the big girl bed again. This routine went on for about an hour and then she was asleep in her new bed until 6 am the next morning! Success? The next night, we did the same thing only she didn't crawl out. After about 15 minutes of silence, I went in to check on her and see if she went straight to sleep, only to find her sitting in the rocking chair reading a book. We went through our routine again and it only took about 30 minutes. Last night we were down to about 15 minutes! Hurray! We have transitioned. Now it's time to get the crib ready for baby Jovie.

I'm glad to inspire you with potty training--you have done the same with big girl beds. I have been looking for beds recently. Potty time is definitely hit and miss for us, but I guess it's all about consistency.
