Big Girl Bed
We had a very uneventful flight home yesterday. Gioia slept on the plane and then again from 1 to 6 am, which was amazing really. She was such a big girl on this trip. We started potty training in earnest the week before we left. Turns out, it only took a series of gummy bear bribes post-pottying to get her focused on the task. I thought perhaps she might regress during our two weeks in the States, but I was wrong. She doesn't even ask for the pee pee beans (i.e., gummy bears) anymore.
When we were in one of the many hotel rooms on this trip, the housekeeping staff forgot to bring a crib. By the time it finally showed up at 9 pm, we had tucked her into the other double bed in the room. Which worked fine. Chris erected all sorts of pillow barriers to make sure she would not roll off, but she barely even turned over in her sleep.
So today, while we were keeping busy, kicking our bodies into a new time zone again, we transformed her crib into a toddler bed. A big girl bed. And she loves it.
