Maya & the big girl bed

The day has finally arrived! 

(. . . drums a-rolling . . . )

Big girl bed day!!!

After Dave got home today we rushed to convert the crib into a toddler bed:

The crib in its final intact moment.

We got the toddler rail on and stood the crib back up, only to realize there was a big problem.  Poor kid wouldn't stand a chance of not rolling out of bed if the bed was tilted at this angle:

We quickly realized we needed to unscrew the feet from the crib wall we had removed and move them over.  (See the foot in the bottom of that picture?)

Problem solved. And adorable :)

Maya loved it and climbed right in . . .

 . . . and Parker loved that there was a perfect doggie-sized opening!

 After a minute or two she grabbed one of her "magazines" (Lakeshore catalogs) and got to work reading.

But she took a break to say, This is awesome!

With all of that enthusiasm, we weren't sure how bedtime would go down.  It went . . . well, see for yourself.  Here's a little video of her seeing the bed for the first time (this afternoon) and then going to sleep tonight (care of the freaking awesome video monitor that I did indeed buy):


So, right to sleep.  What a champ :) (And how cute was the little pop-up head?  Hee hee.  I love this video monitor already)

Tomorrow morning will be interesting.  It may be an IV coffee drip kind of day.
