Transitioning Toddler.

We did it! We finally did it! We moved the Munchkin into her Toddler bed. We have been agonizing over this decision for a while now, and given the developments this past week, we decided it would be best to go ahead and start the process.

The first day she didn't do so well, but for her nap yesterday, and bed time last night she was a champ! And get this, she will actually lay there in the bed, until we come and get her in the morning!!! I'm sure this will be short lived, she will probably make the connection very soon, but until then, I will enjoy!

I must admit, I cried. There was just something about kissing her good night, and watching her roll over in her big girl bed that made me feel so sad. Closing that door behind me, seemed so weird. There she was, free to roam, no longer protected by the confines of her crib. This growing up thing is just happening too fast! Of course everything in our life seems to be happening very fast!

Where did my baby go?

It may not, in fact, be short lived. Mine has been in the toddler bed for about six months & he still stays put. He knows he can get out, but he waits for me. I understand you crying. I did, too.

yay! big girl bed! we put our princess in a toddler bed months ago, and she pretty much stays put unless there's a storm, bad dream or she doesn't feel well, then she'll come climb in bed with mommy & daddy. thats better than when she was in the crib, she'd scream at the top of her lungs until I got her out! lol.

What is it about this transition that seems to be so much harder on us than it is on them? They grow up too fast!

So glad she is being such a good "big girl" in her "big girl bed!"

I SO know your pain! Do they have to grow up so fast. Cora (three in February) is still in her crib. We plan on moving her for her birthday. I don't want to think about it ...

Congrats on the move! Mine also has never gotten out of bed, but if he has, it's been to grab a stuffed animal that was across the room and I only know he got up because of the animal being in bed the next day.

Also, Little Man no longer cries when we put him down like he did in the crib, I think because he KNOWS he's not trapped. He just sings to himself, it's nice. And in the mornings, he doesn't get out, he just calls for me. Also very nice! Munchkin might be the same way!
