The morning started off with me trying on my new dancing outfit. I thought it was great, in fact, I didn't want to remove it once it was on. So Mommy and I struck a deal - I could keep the ballet slippers on as long as I wanted and I wore them most of the morning. Once my parents got breakfast and ready for the day, we went off to find me a toddler bed. Although I have yet to figure out how to climb out of my crib, my parents felt I was getting old enough to get into a bed. We did a little searching and found a little bed just perfect for me. While I went down for my nap, Daddy put my bed together and modified it so there are two rails on one side to keep me from falling out. When I woke up, it was waiting for me. Mommy moved my crib mattress to my toddler bed and it was ready to go! I liked it right away and figured out quickly how to get in and out on my own.
In the afternoon, Uncle Jeff came by to visit for a few hours and we tried out the hats from his "ketchup" and "mustard" Halloween costumes. (Daddy and Uncle Jeff dressed up in the costumes for fun but I have been threatened with no more Yo Gabba Gabba if I post them on the blog!)
The big moment came this evening and it was time to try out the toddler bed for sleeping. Daddy and I read a few books together and then in the bed I went. I rolled around a little just like I have always done in my crib and then before you know it I was asleep - I didn't try to get out once. Hopefully this is not just beginner's luck since Mommy is going out of town tomorrow for the week.
