This past Saturday we said bye bye to our pies and hello to our big girl and big boy beds!!
I was really in no hurry to get rid of the paci's and transition out of the cribs. They were not climbing out and they were both sleeping pretty well, so I was really afraid to rock the boat. However, I made it my goal to get rid of the pies and cribs this summer, so we decided to just go ahead and do it so they'd have plenty of time to adjust before starting school in the fall. We told Carson and Avery that they were going to get a big boy and big girl bed for their rooms but only if they gave their pies to baby Berkley (our friend Brandy's baby that's due this September). Avery cried the first time I told her about our plan, but after talking about it for a couple of days, she was really excited about getting rid of her baby crib and getting to have a big girl bed. Carson was pretty excited about it from the beginning. So Saturday we packed up the pies and said goodbye to them.
One last "pie" picture! (I have to admit it was a little sad for me)
Ready to give their pies to baby Berkley
They both handed them over very willingly, I was shocked that there were no tears or fits, they were actually really excited that baby Berkley got to have their pies.
So Saturday night Carson and Avery had their first "pie-less" night in their big beds, and they did GREAT!! They both went right to sleep and slept all night, I was again shocked. I was expecting them to have a really hard time getting settled down, but they didn't at all. It hasn't been that consistent since though. Carson has been doing great staying asleep all night, but Avery has been waking up a couple times a night the last two nights crying, so I'm hoping she will go back to sleeping all night again soon. Thankfully neither of them come out of their rooms during the night, or nap time for that matter. Nap time has been hit or miss the last few days for both of them, but at least they are staying in their rooms even if they don't go to sleep. So over all the transition hasn't been too bad, we just need to get them both napping again (good luck with that one right?) and get Avery sleeping through the night again!
We also told them that if they gave up their pies and slept in their big beds they would get to pick out a scooter at Target. So Sunday they got to ride outside on their new scooters.
They were so excited!
The pies and cribs were our last two baby things to get rid of. So sad.
They are still my sweet babies though!!
