Sleep Study. {365 - Day 236}

First of all, this is admittedly a poor quality photo, even by iPhone standards.  But if I ran down to get my real camera, I would have missed the bed jumping altogether.  So please excuse the blurriness. 

Day 236 {Cruddy iPhone}

Sarah Beth has a habit of waking up in the middle of the night, drinking water, then crawling into bed with us.  It's been going on for months, and frankly, it's getting a little crowded. The thing is, it's not about us.  It's about our bed.  If she wakes up before Kurt and I go to sleep, she will just hop in our bed and tuck herself in.  When we were on the road, she slept in her own queen sized bed at the hotels with no late night visits to Mommy's bedside.  So, our theory is her toddler bed is too small. 

To prove this theory, Kurt pulled an extra queen mattress out of our garage and flopped it on her floor.  She helped make up the bed, then proceeded to bounce around in her princess costume, teaching Daddy the proper way to jump on a bed. 

We are counting on this to work.  If not, tomorrow morning Sarah Beth may find herself alone in our bed, and Mommy and Daddy sleeping in her room.  Wish us luck.
