Big Girl Bed!



Madison got a new bed Wednesday! She was really excited about a big girl bed. On Monday I was talking to a friend about finally moving Madison out of her crib since she would be turning 3 in June. She really loves her bed so we weren't in a hurry to move her out. She never tried to climb out and bedtime was so easy....give hugs, kisses and lay her down awake. She would go right to sleep by herself. I was afraid to mess up a good thing. My friend told me to check craigslist.com for a toddler bed. I looked Monday, found one that night, emailed the seller and we picked it up on Wednesday.










Madison did so good. We went and bought her a new "Dora sheep" aka Dora sheet. She was thrilled with this purchase. We took down her crib, she got to help with this. After church we came home and she went right to bed. She didn't get up until 7:30 AM Thursday morning. I am so proud of her....such a big girl! Now if we could just get her potty trained :)

So cute! I guess I didn't realize yesterday that this was actually her first time in a "big" bed. Way to go, Madison! Sam will be so proud!

Very cool that you found the bed on Craigslist! It is a great way to find used items at a good deal.

I love all the animals piled in with her! She definitely looks proud of her new bed. Glad she is sleeping well in it! Josiah has done great in his, too.
