Anyway, after some failed attempts in the crib (she can and did climb out) and a series of temper tantrums, I brought in her nap mat from school and put it on the floor as a last ditch effort. She literally laid down with out a fight and slept for 2 hours. The same thing happened at bedtime Monday night.
She is now happily sleeping on her nap mat (on a quilt with all her sleeping friends) on the floor in her room. Since we hadn't planned on the toddler bed happening for a while, we don't have everything we need (I don't think) to convert her crib just yet. Hopefully by this weekend we will have it all set up.
I knew it had to happen at some point, but my baby is officially a big girl now.
Slumber party with all our sleeping friends: (l to r) fish, chicken, Minnie, Mickey, baby, sheep and seahorse
