Now that Chloe is two, and we are thinking ahead that we will need the crib in 5 months for a baby (yikes--5 months!!), we decided to buy Chloe a twin bed. Chloe had fun "helping" daddy build the bed frame. Andrew finished putting it all together while Chloe and I were out, and when we came home, Chloe ran to her room and just stood at the doorway staring at the bed. She then ran over to it and kept saying "big bed" over and over. I took her shoes off and she climbed in and, of course, had to jump a few times to test it out!!
Naptime went really well, and she stayed in her bed the whole time, only needing a few reminders to lie down and go to sleep. At bed time, I told her it was time for jammies and to brush her teeth, and Chloe said, "go night-night in big bed!" She is definitely excited about her new bed!!
