Big Girl Bed Update

Quick update on sleeping in a big girl bed…

Wednesday Night 1: screamed for me twice at 9:30 and 11:30.  I only went in at 9:30 to lay with her for about 5 minutes then at 11:30 she cried out for only about 3 minutes and slept until 6 am!  I think overall a great first night!

Thursday Night 2: screamed and cried out for me at 9:45 and I did not go in and she slept til 9:15!  Even better night!

Friday Night 3: Stayed with Honey

Saturday Night 4:  Slept from 8:30 to 7:45 WOW such a big girl.

Sunday Night 5: Put her down for bed at 7:30, got out once, but thankfully there was a lock on the bed, so I guess she got back in bed because at 8:45 she was asleep.

Monday Night 6: Not so good.  We tried letting Daddy put her to bed, she was not very happy about that.  We put her to bed around 8:00 and she fell asleep around 10:00… YIKES way too late.

Tuesday Night 7: We put her to bed at 7:45.  We heard her play for a really long time, around 8:45 she was trying to get out the door, and when I got close to her door I wish that I would have had my camera because her sweet little fingers were sticking out under the door.  I clapped my hands outside the door and said, “get back to bed.”  Then opened the door and she was scrambling to get into the bed and I laid with her for 5 minutes, then listened to her cry for about 5 minutes and finally she was out cold and I had to wake her up the next morning!  So better than 10:00.

Wednesday Night 8: We put her down at 7:50, she cried out for about 1 minute, talked and played in her bed and was out by 8:45! 

I would say overall SUCCESS!!

Now on to finishing her room… decorating walls and little touches here and there!  More pictures to come of the room!

Snuggle Time

I just had to share this super cute picture of Sophia snuggling up with her Daddy… she looks so big in the picture, yet still so tiny.


Happy 90th Birthday

Snow Day 5

So we had yet another day of ice, not really any snow, more like rain then sleet, then some snow flurries, so another day at home with my hubby and sweet Sophia. 

First Sophia and I made cookies.


Then Daddy and Sophia played lots and lots of Play-doh… one of her new favorite activities… thankfully Zach likes it just as much.


Then with all our extra time we had today, we did the big switch of rooms.  Yep that’s right, time for the big girl bed and room!  We used the spare room furniture which used to me mine as a little girl.  Zach refinished the paint and I am in the process of finding some new handles to go on it to update it some.  No such luck so far since it is “antique.”

Sophia was very excited about her new furniture and bed.  It is a slow process of redecorating, but I am really looking forward to making her room extremely “girly” this time around.


Once we got all the furniture flipped around and the new “room” in place, Sophia was so thrilled, she climbed right up and started to read, and proceeded to stay there reading for about an hour and half.



Hopefully she will do great sleeping in her new big girl bed.

Snow Days 1-4

So its day 4 of no school this week.  I have gotten a lot accomplished in the past couple of days.  Cleaned out the spare room closet, hall closet, my bathroom closet, then the spare room, and made a really big decision…. ITS TIME FOR SOPHIA TO MOVE UP TO A BIG GIRL BED!!  The whole reasoning behind all of the cleaning. 

About 2 weeks ago we put Sophia down for a nap and then next thing we knew she was standing in the hall way telling me no more nap! Yep that’s right she climbed right out. 

The major decision came this week with all the time off, Sophia and I took a couple of naps together and she told me no more little bed, big girl bed like Mommy.  So after that I knew it was time.  We’ll see how soon that all happens.

We did however find some time to go outside and play in the snow on Friday.  Sophia loves being outside, she does not like touching the snow and would most likely freeze before coming back inside!











Crazy icicles on the house


I just LOVE this picture


Not really a fan of touching the snow


But she does LOVE being outside!
