I am not sure if it is because I am 7 1/2 months pregnant and exhausted that made night 1 so hard, or if it is just because this was new to me, but it was HARD!!

Attempt #1 - I started out by laying her in her bed and reading to her.  After several books, Joe and I kissed her good night and followed much the same  routine as we had been doing with "crib-life".  Morgan is smart...she knew something was up.  And boy is she fast!!  I think she made it to the door before we did - screaming the whole way!  Ok, so attempt #1 failed.

Attempt #2 - I laid her back in bed and told her it was night-night time.  She let me leave and close the door.  Then she started screaming and pounding on the door.  After 10 minutes I gave up. 

Attempt #3 - I thought maybe she needed more time to relax - especially after that fall from the crib.  I got her some milk and sat in my recliner with her and watched TV for a while.  She actually fell asleep on me.  I thought...hmmm...maybe I can just lay her down in the bed.  So I did.  And she got right back up - mad as ever!!

Attempt #4 - Again left the room and closed the door behind me.  This time after 5 minutes of screaming it got quite.  I thought I was making progress until I heard my husband laugh.  I turned to see what he was laughing about...and there was Morgan.  She had gotten the door open and was in the living room.  I was so frustrated I let her play for a while.  I didn't know what to do.  What should I try next?

Attempt #5 - I put her in her bed and I laid on the floor next to her.  she seemed to like that.  She would lay in bed for a while and then get up and go over to the door.  She kept asking to get "out".  After 10 minutes she came over and laid next to me on the floor.  15 minutes latter she was asleep.  not in her bed, but on a blanket on the floor next to her bed.  Good enough for me!

At 1 am I snuck out of her room and went upstairs to my own bed...husband in tow.

And Morgan slept in her new room for the first time all by herself until 7:30 am!!!

To bad Joe and I got little sleep - worrying about how she would do....if she would wake up...how was were sad she was growing up so fast....ugh!  Parenting - It is such a joy and an emotional drain and the same time! 

Wonder how nap time will go tomorrow???
