I can ride the big horse now =)
The first of her 'big' changes is moving from an infant room to a toddler room at her daycare. She's almost done transitioning to her new room (we'll see how Wednesday's drop-off goes). Toddler rooms have kiddos from 18 months to 3 years-old; so she'll have some wonderful, dynamic role models to learn from!
To help facilitate her transition at daycare I changed her crib to the toddler bed configuration a few days ago. (The toddlers sleep in cots instead of cribs at daycare). To her credit, little miss Cora has been doing very well with her new-found freedom. Aside from a few complaints at nap time and getting up a little early* in the morning, she has been going to bed smoothly and staying put.
At least, we thought she was staying put, ha! Last night when we peaked in on the girls before going to bed we found this:
Hey, that's not where one should sleep!**
She does look comfortable, though =)
Clearly, someone was up and about having some fun in the room! Overall, though, we're very impressed at how well she's doing. Fingers are crossed that we'll avoid a gopher (up/down/up/down) stage with Cora like we did with Noelle =)
* At 6am this morning (an hour before her normal 7am wake-up) she appeared in our doorway and shouted 'Hi!'. It's fun being able to go to Mom and Dad's room whenever you want!
** Note the huge couch cushion by her bed; just in case she should fall out =)
