A birthday present for mom and dad

Makenzie decided she wanted to give us a present for her birthday and started climbing out of her crib. We are talking 10 times in an hour people. We decided it was time for a big girl bed. The sheets and quilt were bought...and our first night was last night!!!

You want to know how it went - AMAZING. I thought for sure we were going to be up all night with her coming in and out of her room. To our surprise, she did for about 40 min then all was quiet. She actually fell asleep in front of her door. I had to wake her up this morning at 8:30!!!! What a good girl. I think she got up sometime in the night as one of her blankets was by the door, but she never came out and never cried. Somehow, she made it back to her bed.

First nap this afternoon in big girl bed - alot like last night. She came in and out for about 40 min. It was so cute, "mom a song," "momma sit, momma sit." Fell asleep in bed this time.

Night #2 - came out once!!!!! All is quiet right now. I have not checked on her so I don't know where she fell asleep :) I am so grateful this has not been as hard as I had thought or had nightmares about. Good thing too b/c momma is not feeling all too well these days :)

Makenzie Sue turns 2!!!

This is a little late coming, but Makenzie turned two on the 20th. I can't believe she is two!!!! She brings energy, life, happiness and lots of drama to our lives. She is talking up a storm. She loves to say, "it's dark in here" "a dada's car" for every white car, among lots of others. We love her so much.
