The wonders of a toddler bed

I have always thought toddler beds were silly and goofy looking until Ema climbed into one at Baby Time and said "night night". I bought that bed on the spot and brought it home. Ema has slept all night in her toddler bed ever since. It is a miracle. Sher loves her big girl bed. Everyone that comes over has to see it. She is so proud that she has her own bed, and so are Kirk and I. To sleep all night without a kicking /crying little girl in the middle is so nice. If Ema slept with us but allowed me to cuddle with her it would be different, but she is like sleeping with an animal the way she kicks. I am thinking that Ema associated her crib with Vietnam and maybe it brought back memories of leaving the orphanage something. Here are pictures of the morning after sleeping in her bed. She was so proud of herself. It was also our first night of 8 hours of sleep in almost 6 months. I am not sure who was the happiest....Kirk and I or Ema?
