Aubree has been growing up this week, and I can't really believe it. We decided it was time to move her on to her "big girl bed" since Sophie will be needing the crib this next month. The first night we didn't hear anything from her and the second and third. Well the fourth day rolls around, I went to go get her in the morning and her door was locked! I unlocked it with my nail, and there she was, wide awake and playing with her hair bow. Pants were strewn on the floor, and the closet was a mess. So she discovered that she could get off her bed. The next mourning she came tromping in and now she realizes that when she wakes up she no longer has to wait for mommy. I'm surprised it took her that long, but she has always been such a good sleeper. So that has been a nice transition, although I'm worried about the naps. I do not want to give those up! If she won't stay in her bed I'll just make her go to her pack and play!
We're working on the alphabet and shapes right now and she is doing really well. She can name a circle, square, diamond, triangle, heart and star. She can sing the alphabet song all by her self and she can point out and recognize the letters A B C D H J and Z. We're getting there. Now we have to start potty training...any tips? Any good books, ideas? I'm all ears.
This will be a big summer of milestones with all that's going on with Aubree and of course there will be all of Sophie's too. My goals for her are to crib train her, and get her to sleep through the night already, or a least be on a schedule where she only wakes up once. I could handle that but I'm getting really burnt out with waking up 3+ times a night! Any advice on that either?
