Big Girl Bed...

... Not so much! Unfortunately, our attempt at transferring Sierra to her big girl bed was a giant failure. At first, she was super excited. She crawled in herself and wouldn't get out! So, we brought her favorite blankie and animals up, tucked her in, and turned out the lights.

I wanted to lay down with her to make her feel comfortable, but that made her think it was a game. She kept sitting-up, laughing, and poking me. Then she kept getting out. Hmmm...

I decided I just had to pray with her and kiss her goodnight. I prayed. I kissed her. I said good night. I left.


Hysterical. She went bollistic. She banged on the door as if her life were in danger. I walked back in and told her it was ok, and I would lay with her a while. That's when she threw-up... and so I gave-up. We washed her up, and brought her back to her crib. That was 3 nights ago. She has happily gone to bed AND for naps in her crib with no protest since. (She has always been a protester!)

So, for now she stays. In the meantime, I have lots of other projects I am working on trying to accomplish these next 2 weeks. I can't believe I only have 2 weeks left! Perhaps you will be seeing a lot more posts on the things I am accomplishing around the house during this nesting phase!
