Big Girl bed

On Saturday night, we finally made the move to Kyra's "big girl" bed. She climbed right in and got under her adorable ladybug and flower adorned covers. Jim read her a Bible story and said a prayer and we turned out the lights. We barely made it down the stairs when she started crying, but we were mentally prepared for that. I had told myself I'd let her cry for 10 minutes before going to comfort her. But she never made it that far. After a short 5 minute crying session, she fell asleep and slept all through the night until 8:00 the next morning. She woke up happy and chatting to herself. Then both Sunday and Monday nights we've been able to put her to bed without any crying and have had sweet sleep all night long. We both feel SOOOOO blessed that Kyra took to her big bed so well!
