My Complete Profile

Email Me

Kayla, my oldest. She is 4 1/2 and is a sweet, loving and silly little girl. She took us 2 ½ years and 3 IVF’s to conceive. Kayla is allergic to dairy. We manage her allergy and work to balance her safety with giving her a normal childhood. Kayla loves to read books and play games - she amazes me every day.

Alysa, my youngest. She is 3 years old and is a silly little spitfire. She’s our monkey and loves to climb on everything. She was a “natural” baby, but it was only b/c of my wonderful doctors that we were able to stop an impending miscarriage. Alysa suffers from Acid Reflux Disease and sleep apnea. She may be little, but she has a big personality. She adores her big sister and is so much fun to be around. She keeps me laughing every day.

Yikes! She's Getting So Big
So, first she gets potty trained really fast. Then she has a couple freak-outs when she woke up from her nap having to pee really bad and being trapped in her crib.

So...months sooner than planned, we decided to change her crib to the toddler bed. Now, this child loves her bed. Although, I refused to underestimate her again, I was aware that she may not like the change, as she's such a creature of habit.

Well, when she saw her crib with the side off, she screeched from excitement. She thought is was the best thing in the world that she could get in and out of bed on her own. She told us "I love my new bed". She's too sweet.

Here is her new bed and her in it...

And it's now 9:15'ish and she is fast asleep. We have a video monitor so we can see her. She NEVER left her bed. Amazing! I'll let you all know tomorrow how she does the rest of the night and how she likes waking up with freedom. Naps may be a whole different story too...

Have a great night!

It's always a little scary making a change like that isn't it?? I"m glad she took to it so well and hopefully she won't, um, "abuse" her new found mobility!!
