Anna Beth's Big Girl Bed

We recently went for our 18 month check up with Dr. Zbell. We mentioned to her about Anna Beth waking up in the middle of the night, but going right back to sleep once we put her in bed with us. She asked if she was still in her crib and we told her yes. She suggested going ahead and changing over to her toddler bed so she would have more room. I thought she was still too young, but we decided to give it a try! Last night, Matt took the rail off her baby bed and put the side rail on. Anna Beth went to sleep by herself in it and slept all night long! This afternoon she laid right down for her nap. I am shocked that she is staying in it and not climbing out. This is bittersweet for me. My baby is not a baby anymore. That makes me very sad. But at the same time, I am so excited about her growing and changing. It seems like in the last several weeks, she has really gotten good at putting words together and communicating with us. I miss her being my baby, but each day is more fun than the last!

It is sad to know that the girls are growing up way too fast! But it is so fun watching how their little minds think! Anna Beth looks like she is really enjoying her bed. Maybe she will continue sleeping all night. We had 4 nights in a row.

What a big girl and what a pretty bed!

Her bed looks so huge! I know you're glad to get some good sleep. Every once in a while I'll get a good 4 hours straight before Bryson wakes me up & one of us will have to go sleep in the toddler bed with him. It looks like Anna Beth is adjusting much better than he did!
