toddler bed a month or so ago, but Kate has refused to sleep in it. She would sit on it to play or read books, but when it was time to sleep... no way. They had to get her pack & play back out for her to sleep in when we were there over Thanksgiving.
But today, when placed in her pack & play for a nap, she stood up and pointed at the bed. "You want to sleep there?" Opa asked. She nodded "yes," and there she is, sleeping in a bed!
Several people have asked me since I posted this video of Kate climbing out of her crib at 20 months if we've transitioned her to a toddler bed yet. I know it's strange, but she hasn't climbed out again since then!
She clearly knows how to climb out (I have videographic proof!) but she usually doesn't balk at going to bed, just lays down and waits to be covered up. A few times in the last couple months, she has cried at bedtime and started to lift her leg over the railing like she's going to climb out. I just ignore it and leave the room. Thirty seconds later, I peek in on her, and she's sitting down in the crib, holding up Big Raffi to be covered up.
Her crib is a convertible, so if we can figure out how to remove the front and add a railing, I guess we'll be in good shape. But I'm not feeling much of a rush. So long as she's happy in her crib at home, my little big girl can keep that vestige of babyhood a while longer.
