Transitioning to a Toddler Bed

Last night was Liv's first night in her new room with her new bed. She did amazingly well.
I have been prepping her a lot for it.

She helped us put all her clothes in her new closet, bring in her toys and books too.
She also watched Daddy take apart her crib and turn it into a toddler bed in her new room. He asked her to help him. She would give him screws and hold the flash light.
After the bed was set up we had her help put in her night time toys and let her play in the bed reading to her dolls for a little bit before bed.
We went through her normal night time routine and she was out. She didn't wake up once the whole night.
I think she enjoys the freedom of being able to get out of the bed when she wakes up.
We talked about her new bed for a while and how she is not a baby any more and gets to sleep in a big girl bed. She loved the idea, which is why I think she has done so well.
I didn't not push her before I felt she was ready. Since her bed converts all the way to a full we got another set like this for the baby so worse case scenario she could of stayed in her crib.
Liv is almost 2 now and does not think she is a baby any more. She loves the idea of being grown and likes to cuddle and kiss babies and her dolls. I just hope this keeps up when our new baby arrives.
