Just a quick update on the bed. Ever the pioneer, Casey decided that once that bed was put together, she was sleeping in it. So at nap time yesterday, the ONLY place she wanted to sleep was in her new bed. I dragged it into her room and set it next to her crib. It took her about 10 minutes to realize I was seriously letting her take her nap in the bed and off to dreamland she went. She slept for almost 3 hours and when she woke up she listened to her mom and yelled for me until I came upstairs and then she could get out of bed! Then she spent the rest of her afternoon laying in her bed: reading, playing with stuffed animals, and kept saying "new bed", "new bed". Needless to say, she couldn't wait until bedtime. Kyle and I were a little nervous how she'd do overnight...ha! No worries. She fell asleep within 10 minutes, we slept with our fan turned down and the door open and she snoozed for 11 hours -- waking again by calling for me and waiting until I came up to get out of bed...and the same pattern with today's nap!
We are NOT planning to take the crib out of her room for at least a month or so, but needless to say, we were kind of surprised how quickly she adjusted! So proud of our little trooper!
Katie, Kyle, Casey, and Jimmy
