So Sally Rose has been sleeping in her big girl bed for the last several nights. Once she falls asleep, she's fine and sleeps through the night, but getting her there is pretty difficult. Before we went to Oregon, she was SO easy to put down. She wanted to go down and would occasionally ask to. While on vacation, she had a rough time going to sleep. I thought I would let her get back to her good sleep habits before making the transition from crb to bed, but she climbed out and fell on her noggin. So, big girl bed for her. She thinks it's cool, and loves hanging out on it, even in it, just not alone. Some nights have been better than others, but as soon as Bill or I leave the room she screams. And screams. And screams. She tries to come out, and we were holding the door, until last night when we realized we could lock it and pick the lock from our side. We tried doing different things in the putting down process. It seems, she just has to give up eventually. Any attempts to go in and soothe make the process longer. She always ends up in bed, although usually with shoes on which she didn't have on when we left her. That part is cute. I'm wondering if any of you have any tips on making this any easier. Last night, it was over an hour. I hate to say that that is not atypical.
She loves sitting up here when she gets her hair fixed. She also loves soaking her feet just like her mama. I like to do it together and make faces at each other in the mirror.
