Big Girl Bed Update

Well, to my surprise and amazement, the girls are doing GREAT in their big girl beds. Both didn't leave their beds at nap or bedtime today. They settled in, played with their blankets and sang a few songs. I actually think Evelyn does better in the new bed (it's actually the old crib with the toddler front)...she hasn't made a fuss one bit. Yeah for Evelyn and Sylvia.

Next Challenge? Staying dry at night! We tried a few weeks ago and they weren't ready. We will try again next week.

Big Girl Beds!!!

Santa suprised the girls with an early Christmas present -- their BIG GIRL BEDS (crib converted to toddler bed). We have been building this moment with great enthusiam since it's obvious they needed access to a bathroom during naps, so Mommy had to come to terms that it was time. 6 trips (3 each) to potty last weekend during nap was tiring us out.

Mommy ordered a cool new video montior for each room with talk back capability, further secured their bathroom drawers, reversed the locks on the doors (so we can lock them in) and converted the beds. Voila! Big girl beds. They were sooo excited (see videos). The first night was great. Evelyn got a little upset and threw all of her blankets/babies on the floor, but then put them back in. Sylvia discovered her room and bathroom like Curious George (going to the potty 3 times). I talked through the monitor and told her "go to bed" and we hear the pitter patter of her feet as she scurried back. Evelyn looked at me this morning and said "thank you for my big girl bed, Mommy." Then, she ran into the family room and told our stuffed Santa the same. So sweet.

I'm dying to know what happens at naps tomorrow!

Girls' Day

We invited Clara over for an all day playdate a few Saturday's ago. What good fun we had!
