so last night was emma’s first night in her big girl bed…. a twin size bed in her new room. she was excited as can be, and here are the pictures to prove it. (i will post more pictures of the room when it is done.) we decided to get some rails to put on each side, and i thought centering them along the side would be a good idea. all was well for about 3 hours. then, we decided to check on her, and make sure she was still covered up and doing ok. we do this every night before we go to bed, so we didn’t think it was a big deal at all.
i guess that we must have disrupted her sleep, because a little while later we heard a loud sound and ian went to see what it was. well, she had fallen out of her bed onto the hardwood floor. ouch! poor baby! you would think it would scare her, or at least wake her up, but luckily it didn’t. we picked her up and didn’t know what to do with her. should we put her back and try again? should we put her back in the old room in her crib? gosh, we didn’t know. and it was 1 am by then. thanks to us bugging her so much, we did finally “half wake” her. she was awake enough to cry… a lot… and enough to say ‘i want my blue room’ when we tried to take her to her old room. so i told ian that we needed to stick with the change and put her back. all kids must do this. all kids will fall out of their bed and eventually learn not to move around so much, right? well, we will see.
right now she is taking her nap in there, and i am afraid to go in and see. hopefully she is still on the bed… 😉
**and yes, that is her cow and blanket in her bed with her… i don’t think she will give those up until she is twelve!!
