Big Girls Rooms

The girls have been sleeping in big girl beds for a little over two months (around two and a half). The girls did great in their cribs, they never tried to climb out and slept great in them, but the girls were getting too big for them. We travelled a lot over the summer and the girls were really cramped in the pack-n-plays so we just decided to move them to beds. It is so nice not to have to haul three pack-n-plays every time we go out of town!!! We just put them in queen or king bed and its like a little slumber party.

We knew that we were not going to be able to fit three twin beds in their room so we had to move someone out. Brooklyn's sleeping patterns are the most different of the three so we decided that she would get her own room....she is quick to fall asleep at night and almost always the first up in the morning. Addyson and Caitlyn take longer to wind down at night and they get up 30 minutes to an hour later. It is much easier on us to deal with one two-year old at 6:30am than three! The girls have all done great with the transition. Occasionally, Brooklyn will wander into our room in the middle of the night but we take her back to her bed and she will go back to sleep without much of a fight. I know eventually the girls will all want their own room but for now it is nice to have a guest room for our occasional guests.

Here are some pictures of the girls' "big girl" rooms. It took me a few weeks to get them done but I think they turned out super cute. Brooklyn's room has a flower theme and Addyson and Caitlyn's room has a teapot theme.

Brooklyn's room up first!
