My DD is 22 months, and she eats apple slices but not raw carrots. I just peel and slice the apples pretty thin, and she does fine. But, she has always been a fairly eager eater.
She still sleeps in a crib, but we will be transitioning her out of it within the next couple of months, as we need it for a new baby. I'm fairly nervous about that, since she sleeps well in it, and is happy to be in there. We'll see - I guess they can't stay in there forever!
My plan is that she will get her "big girl room" around the time of her birthday (early Dec) and we will have her start taking her naps on the big girl bed, and do that for a couple of weeks. Then, maybe around early January we will have her start sleeping at night in there.
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed
door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”
Helen Keller (1880–1968)
