One Step Forward
For the past couple of months, Mike and I have been trying on and off to get Emily to sleep in a toddler bed so we can free up the crib for Zachary (yes, that's the name we're going with for the new baby boy!). We put familiar things in the bed with her, and put a gate up outside her door. We would try at night only to have her stand at the gate and cry. We would try to wait it out, adding on a few minutes each time only to put her back in her crib. Today, I thought I would be brave, and try for nap time. I checked on her a couple of times, and each time she was out of bed, playing. At least she wasn't crying! The last time I checked on her, 2 HOURS LATER, she was curled up in her bed with a pair of shoes, 2 books, and a plastic phone. Hopefully it will start to get easier from now on. I'll keep you posted!
