So last night went pretty well. She woke up once before midnight asking to color, but was persuaded easily enough to go back to bed. She woke when I opened the door to check on her – the light from the hall shines on her face now. We may need to rethink that.
She ended up sleeping through the night, until she fell out of bed around 4:30. Not too bad for a first night.
She napped well this morning. So well that we ended up being late for her friend’s birthday party because I didn’t want to wake her. Ash is always a out of sorts when you do wake her, timid, clingy.
Although the ride down gave her some time, it wasn’t quite enough. And there were a few people already there, so she was a bit shy at first, but soon enough warmed up. They had a hippity-hop.
And cake. Delicious cake.
By the time we had to leave, she was talking to just about everyone. Not quite the social butterfly that Teagan can be, but definitely more outgoing than on arrival.
But the party tired her out. I put her down for a second nap – yay! – and again, she slept hard. I needed to wake her up. Again.
It’s still a bit too early, but so far, she’s been happy about her grown-up room.
