Converted Crib

I was planning on buying Chloe Jo a twin-sized bed for christmas. Russ and I ended up deciding to hold off on that for a little while. Lately, though, I've been really wanting to be able to snuggle up with Chloe Jo before she goes to sleep. On Wednesday, I decided to convert her crib into a toddler bed. Chloe Jo helped me unscrew and take out the front railing. She was soooo excited to be able to climb into her bed all by herself (she never even tried to climb out of the crib).
She loves her bed without the front rail and I do, too. I'm able to snuggle up with her before she goes to sleep for a few minutes and I just love it.
I have put pillows on the floor the last couple of nights. She did fall out once each night. It is a learning process just like everything else and she will get used to it. She does just fine during naptime. She is the sweetest little girl ever!

Our crib has a toddler rail that replaces that front part of the crib. I think it has a place to allow them to get in and out - I think it may be close to time to try it out!
