Big Girl Bed

Bennet is like her mom. She likes to sleep ;) We weren't in any hurry to move her to a toddler bed or regular bed. She's been getting out of the crib on her own for a couple months now. But only when I go into her room in the morning and she knows someone is watching. Last week she snuck up behind me in the kitchen after getting out on her own and we knew it was time.

Today we converted her crib to a toddler bed. The before: She had to help Dad with the screws.
We were nervous on what she would think of it. She LOVES it. For the next couple hours she would sneak away to her room, shut the door and sit in it. At one point I caught her reading books to her kitties. Tonight we sat reading some books in the living room. I saw her rub her eyes so I asked, "Do you want to go to bed?" She jumped off the couch, grabbed her kitty, gave Dad and Scout hugs and kisses and bolted to her room and literally jumped into bed. I think she likes it.
