First Night in the Big Girl Bed!

Well...tonight is the night!
So...we are bringing you up-to-the-minute coverage on the Big Event!

Here are some pictures of Elizabeth's "Big Girl Room" with her "Big Girl Bed"!

And then, a little video treat to document the bedtime ritual.

(You may notice...we did not have her crawl under the covers, yet. She is used to sleeping with these favorite little blankets on top of her, so we thought we'd ease in a little at a time before introducing the whole sheet and comforter situation.) I'll post tomorrow to let you know whether or not the first night was a success!

I think it's time to start speaking to her in declarative sentences instead of interrogatives! ;-)

But how cute!!!

Just realized that I had promised to post an update. The big girl bed is working wonderfully, and, though she had a few issues the first week with naps and staying in her bed for them, nights have gone very smoothly from Day One. Hooray! And now she is back to her "good napper" routine during the day as well. (Not gonna was tough there for a few days! Ask her...she will tell you "If you're a good girl, you get a cookie! If you're a bad girl, you get a spanking!!!" ;-) Happy to report, she has only received a naptime spanking three times. Didn't take her too long to figure out that an after-nap cookie is MUCH better! :-)
