Emmas Big Girl Bed!

As most of you know Emma isnt a good sleeper at all, she wakes 3 times a night and when i get up for work at 5am every morning its exhausting!
So me and my mum turned Emmas cot into a 'big girl bed' on Sunday (I say we, she did it and i observed!!) Ive changed her whole routine around, at 7.30 me and Em go upstairs she chooses which pajamas she wants we sit on the bed and talk whilst getting her dressed then we choose 3 books and 3 teddies for her to snuggle, she lies in bed and drinks her milk whilst i read the first story to her when she finishes her bottle we read two more, i tuck her into bed and stroke her hair whilst singing her favourite song untill she goes to sleep
'You are my Sunshine, my only Sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey you never know dear how much i love you so please dont take my Sunshine away'...Again and Again and Again.
The first night it took me 2 hours to get her to bed and she climbed into my bed at 4am sneaky girly!!
The 2nd night it took one hour and she slept all the day through!!
Andr 30 minutes but she did climb into my bed for snuggles at 4am but i dont mind that!
This routine is working so so so well! Im definatly going to stick to it, she is alot more alert during the day because shes getting a lot more sleep.
Cant believe how big my babygirl is getting she will be 2 in 6 and a half weeks!
