We made the switch! Amy is now sleeping in her big-girl, twin-size bed. We've been talking about this for quite awhile and Amy has been tremendously excited about the idea. With the travel and busyness of the holidays behind us and plenty of time before baby #2 arrives, this seemed like a good time to give it a whirl.
So far, so good!
We did buy a frame, but it made the bed just a tad too high, so for now the mattress set is on the floor and that seems to be working out very well.
Making the switch involved some minor room reorganization - moved around the dresser and bookcase, put the bed where the crib was, and crib on the opposite wall (in case it was still called for - it hasn't been). The wicker rocker is more toward the middle of the room now, under the window, making for an even better bedtime reading area. I'm totally in love with the blue coverlet - from the Christmas Tree Shop, no less, and the Winnie the Pooh fleece throw I whipped together (from a kit). Amy's room is now so snug and cozy - she absolutely loves it.
Of course the furry ones are also quite fond of the new bed. Feline company is very cute until it's 5 am and I hear "Ollie is chewing my toes!" from down the hall.
