I'm a Big Girl Now!

What is so different about this sleeping face? 
It is in a big girl bed....
This is how I found her Monday morning after her first night in her big girl bed. Ummm sweetie that is the wrong way. Although that would help with the falling out of the bed issue.

Tuesday night she fell out of the bed for the first time. Her reaction? Not so good. I am pretty sure she clawed up her hand and tried to gauge my eye out. My reaction? No so good. I am lucky she didn't draw blood! But she did go back to sleep fairly quickly after she calmed down and realized I wasn't a scratching post. And after I stopped looking at her-ha!  

All in all a smoothish transition. Granted the pillows next to her bed for her to tumble onto have helped me sleep better at night. The bad thing about this crib is it doesn't have a bar there. I have considered buying a generic toddler rail but I am going to see how she does over the next few weeks before spending the mulah. 

And just to make things a little more interesting, she opened a door via doorknob yesterday for the first time. Had to make my life a little harder one way or another didn't you Lily?! Still haven't decided how to fix that problem. That my dear, is to deal with another day. For today I leave you with the realization that you are growing up faster than Mommy ever imagined.

Cute! We've had Jax sleep on a twin mattress on the floor for probably a year. He still falls out sometimes but it's not so traumatic. Except of course when the spot he falls on is covered in hard toys like cars, firetrucks, spiky dinosaurs & whatnot.
