Tonight is E’s first night sleeping in her big girl bed. It’s a full sized mattress and she looks like a peanut between all the pillows, stuffed animals and blankets. She’s been talking about sleeping in a bed for a few months and Evan and I have been reluctant to pull the trigger, mostly because she’s been sleeping like a champ in her crib – ie 11 hours at night and a consistent 2 hour nap each day. But, with the impending arrival of baby Number Two, and the days of our full nights sleep slowly waning away, we figured there was no time like the present to start a new routine for E. The best case scenario is she adjusts to her new bed in the next few weeks and doesn’t have a sleep set back when the baby arrives. Worst case, we kept her crib set up in her room and she can always sleep there for a few more nights (weeks, months) if she changes her mind.
It’s only been 3 hours but so far, no sign of E changing her mind. She is snoring away. Just like a big girl.
