After several months of putting it off, we finally decided it was time for Charis to move from her crib to a big girl bed. We’ve been talking to her about it for several weeks, and I’ve been reassuring her that even in a big girl bed she can still keep her three stuffed animals and three blankets that she loves. And this past week her new bed was delivered and we took down the crib. I was a bit worried about how things would go when we tried to put her to sleep for the first time in her new bed, but it actually went really well. For most of the day she said she didn’t want to go to sleep in her new bed, but when the time finally came, her sleepiness (and perhaps the Disney princess sheets on her new bed) won out, and we tucked her into bed without any complaining at all. It was a sweet gift from the Lord that she handled it so well!
