I feel like I have 3 yr. olds instead of 18-month olds. We took down the cribs! No more cribs, that sounds so sad! I mean, I know it's an exciting time, and just another milestone. But they're really not babies anymore. And it seems like they didn't spend enough time in them, lol. That's only because they slept next to my bed until they were almost 7 months old, due to them being so little, and also due a little bit to me being kinda attached to them :D
At the moment they are just sleeping on mattresses on their floor. Their cribs do convert to a daybed, but my kids are SQUIRMERS! They flip and flop all over the place at night (they get that from their daddy) and no daybed, even with a little rail would hold them. They would find a way to fall off. So, I guess we'll stick to mattresses, unless maybe we go with those little plastic beds that just sit on the floor. They'll still fall out, but at least it won't be far. Who knows.. The only bad thing about no cribs is that it takes them longer to actually go to sleep. They can get up and play at will, so we're trying to get used to that. I laid them down about an hour ago and I can hear them on the monitor, walking around and roaring like a lion. Ahh, toddlerhood :)

Hope you all had a fantastic Easter! We did! I didn't know if the girls would "get" egg hunting or not only being 18 months old, but we tried it. We just laid eggs around the yard in the grass, and once we showed them what to do they actually had a lot of fun! Layla kept throwing eggs at everyone, and Piper kept jumping on them, popping them open, lol. In the pictures below, Piper is in the green dress and Layla in the pink (These were their eating outfits. Couldn't get mac & cheese on the frilly dresses, lol). In the last picture, J is holding Layla and I'm holding Piper.
