Toddler Bed Success!

So Cadee is 20 months now
and we thought it would be a good time to transition her
to her new toddler "Big Girl Bed" {this one}.
That way when Aria arrives
she won't feel like we are taking it away from her.

A few months ago, we had tried converting her crib
to a toddler bed,
but she definitely wasn't ready {and honestly, either were we}.
This time seemed to be a lot easier
and she seems to like the little bed better
{I personally like that it is closer to the ground}
and she looks so darn cute in it!

Here she is taking her first nap, looks pretty cozy to me!
To me this was a success because it only took
15 minutes of crying :(
and putting her back down 1 time
before she decided to just get in bed and crash out!!
The funny thing was, she wanted her two teddy bears with her,
which she never asked for in her crib!
So what the heck, I guess they made her feel safe :}

The evening went similar, but she was a little more tired
so I just stayed with her until she closed her eyes {about 30 min.}
 She woke up at about 3:30am,
so we just brought her in bed with us!
{I know bad habit, but they are only little once} 

Last night was heaven, she didn't get up until 7:30am!!


Toddlers can be tough at times,
but there is nothing sweeter than watching your little one 
sleep like a little angel.
