I don't know who is more excited about this, Gigi or Paul and I. We have been eyeing this "Big Girl Bed" from Ikea for months. Each time we went to ikea, Gigi insisted on climbing in this bed to check it out. We decided about a month and a half ago to take the plunge and get it. But at that time it was out of stock. We have been checking the web page every few days and finally Friday it was back in stock. We went to Ikea and picked it up. First we had to figure out how to get the crib apart and now it's up for sale so if you know anybody in need a crib let me know. Then we put the bed together. Ms. G was quite excited. Last night bedtime went well, she told me she was ready to go get in her big girl bed and we went up and she got in and went to sleep. Naptime today was a bigger challenge since she can just get out. After a few tries and firm words she decided to take the nap.
We also had a play date today. Andrew came over and checked out all of Gigi's toys. Gigi and Andrew are about a week apart in age and his mom and I work together. They are also in the same day care and have known each other since about three months of age. They had a great time playing together.
