It's been a little while since I posted here, and still alot I haven't shared about our trip to the US. Twice while in the US, our littlest climbed out of her playpen. I thought it was just that she was using the mesh to push into with her toes. But last weekend while I was away for my first night away from her, she climbed OUT of the crib. My husband thankfully caught her before she fell out head first. A move was in order.
Our littlest has slept with, or beside me in her crib since she was born. We have a three bedroom home, and the big two don't sleep well together. This meant when the littlest was ready to move, she would be moving in with her big sister. This past week I purchased a bunk bed and a second mattress. The bed building happened on Friday, with the mattress arriving yesterday. It was a big weekend for my kids!
Our littlest is only 20 months so I wasn't sure how the move would go. My other two didn't move to a big bed until they were over 2. Friday and Saturday night she slept in the playpen in her new bedroom and did great (even sleeping through the night the second night!). Yesterday was the big move and she did AMAZING. Looks like she is ready to show me she is just like her brother and sister. As I type this she is having a successful first nap in her new bunk. (Don't get me wrong... she hasn't realized yet she can leave the bed. Once this happens - say in two or three days - sleeping may get harder). But for now, I'm really impressed.
Today is the running of the Boston Marathon. I'm excited for the US that an American has won the race! I got out with the kids this morning for a nice 4K walk with my Mom while the race was on, a recovery from the 23K I ran yesterday. The Calgary Marathon is happening in just over 40 days from now. My last big run (36K I hope), will happen on Mothers Day weekend. Not long now!
