Big Girl Bed!

Last week Jared and I decided that it was time to take off the front railing on Erin's crib. She had been waking up in the middle of the night and wouldn't want to rock or go back to sleep. So I thought why not just give her the option of getting out of bed herself. I was worried that it would take time for Erin to get the concept that she was still suppose to go to sleep once she was "free". SURPRISE, SURPRISE!!!! I can not believe how well she is doing! Yesterday was the first time she immediately got out of her bed when I put her down for a nap. She didn't try to come out of her room, she just played in there for about 20 minutes and then got back on her bed and went to sleep. Last night she got up as soon as I shut the door, played a little and then came to the door and just knocked politely. We were too soft on her, and let out for another 20 minutes before I put her back in bed and she went right to sleep. We open Erin's door when we go to bed so that she can just come into our room in the morning. Although sometimes she forgets that she can get out or something and will just sit there and call for me... laziness! JK here are a couple of pictures of the night Erin got her "big girl bed". she was so excited she jumped up into it, laid down and said "night night!!" Erin also HAS to have her bed full of her stuffed animals. so it's kind of chaotic! She loves though and is such a big girl!

This is Erin Saying "night, night!"

All of Erin's blankets and animals
