We moved Hope into her big girl bed early last week. The good news is she loves it and doesn't miss her crib at all (which is now in the nursery)!
(Ignore the fact that the bed skirt hadn't made it on the bed quite yet. This was the first night in her bed. The skirt was ironed and put on by the weekend).
The bad news is that she figured out how to get out of her big girl bed on the second day, so we are struggling with keeping her in her bed at nap time and night time. We hadn't moved her into a big girl bed before now because she never tried to get out of her crib so we just enjoyed the crib for as long as possible. But now that we are nearing #2 coming into the world, we wanted there to be some time in between Hope moving out of the crib and #2 moving into the crib in case Hope didn't like the idea. She got new bedding for Christmas, I ordered a bed rail from Amazon and we were just waiting for the perfect weekend to do it. Well she was so excited about the size of the bed (it's a full) and the pretty bedding, she has forgotten about the crib. Yeah!
