giddy gumdrop

Last Friday Grace slept in her big girl room for the first time! She did GREAT! She was so excited to be in her new room. She kept saying "I love my big pink room. It's so pretty and pink." quickly followed by "I want to go there" pointing to her nursery :) I decided to stay in there with her until she fell asleep thinking she'd be up at least a couple of times that night, but once she FINALLY fell asleep (for Grace, mama on the floor = slumber party), she didn't make a peep until 6:45 the next morning, then fell back asleep until 8:30!

Checking out her new room for the first time Too excited to fall asleep just yet Not too hard, not too soft, just right! Cuddly little pumpkin - so sweet! She's done really, really well this past week. She's awaken a couple of times during the night, but stayed in her bed and with a little comforting went right back to sleep. I was afraid she'd wake up disoriented in the middle of the night and get scared not knowing how to get to us, but so far she's only gotten out of bed once when it was already morning and went right to the door like a pro. I'm so proud of my big girl!

As far as the room...Haven't found the perfect bedskirt, so I'm using one we already had and I'm still waiting on the curtains and working on some wall art, so can't share more pics until it's just right ;)

So cute! She looks like such a big girl standing next to her bed, my gosh how the time flies. Now does she sleep under the blankets/quilt? Emerson will not, we pull them back and he sleeps on the sheet with his little blankies that he snuggles with. Such a fun change! Yahoo Grace

Thanks, Kayla!

Nope, Heather, Grace will not sleep under the bed sheet/quilt. She still sleeps on her belly curled up like a baby with only her lovie and blankie :) Old habits die hard! How's Emerson doing with his new bed?

Her room is so precious! You've done a great job so far. I love all the cute pillows and the wall color is so yummy.

Congrats on sleeping through the night in her big girl bed. it can be quite a transition and it sounds like she's adjusting well.

Keep those pictures coming! :) Can't wait to see Hudson's room too.
