Big girl beds

Audrey and Lydia are officially girls and and not babies. It's one of the sad things about not having any more kids. I almost hate to see specific stages come to an end. Don't get me wrong. It was well time. The girls had been climbing out of their cribs for about a month when I finally bit the bullet and put them into the toddler beds. This was them on the second night. At least they were both in their beds. Lydia is kinda in between two beds, while Audrey still looks like she is sleeping in a crib. I have now decorated the room and it looks really cute. We framed a picture and put up their initials on the wall above their bed. We got a toy bin for the other side of Lydia's bed and a book shelf and lamp for Audrey's side. I painted a mirror that my Uncle Hal and Auntie Carol gave me when they moved away a few years back. It all came together and when I get their curtains finished I will photograph it and let you all see.

For the most part it hasn't been a big deal. I now have to sit with them to get them to take a nap. Usually about 10-15 min. is all it will take. For bedtime we just read a story and put them down. They do the rest. I think it helps that it's dark. We have found them in each others beds a lot, on the floor a few times, but mostly just in their own big girl beds.

My kids play hard ALL DAY what's up with them mucking around at nights as of late?

Cute. Post pictures of the room, even w/o the curtains, cuz if it were me, that'd be another eternal project!
