We also finally got a "big girl bed". We set up the twin mattress and box springs in her room after supper with cool new flower sheets and a real pillow. She thought it was pretty fun.
When she went to bed I was "the enforcer" sitting on a stool by the door. I had to silently put her back in bed 13 times in the first 5 minutes, but we got the "stay in bed" part down pretty quickly. She used up her 1 "potty" excuse and her 1 "drink" excuse right away. Soon we had to establish a "no standing, running or jumping" on the bed rule. It took about 2 hours for her to fall asleep (which is par for the course lately), but when she did, it was so adorable to see her curled up like a true "big girl" in a big bed. :o)
Below is the October video player with a couple new ones. The October pictures will be up on Winkflash soon. There are less picture/videos this month because Emily spent half the time half naked during her undressing phase, so I didn't get out the cameras at all during that time. Thankfully, she is growing out of it! :o)
