5 days....

5 days till we pick up our baby girl. I am so excited yet so nerves. We got the crate put up this weekend....trying to decide if we need the divider in our 48" crate.....that thing is huge. Today her ex pen should be delivered...plan on getting it setup in the living room...going to use eye bolts to attach it to the wall so she can't slide it on the floor.

My kids are so excited to pick her up....they have wanted to pick her up for weeks.....this is helping them learn patience though.

I feel like a little kid myself waiting....

It might be best to gauge her size in relation to the crate when she comes home. If she has the ability to go potty in the corner and have enough room to walk away, the crate is too big. I believe Olivia started out in a 36" crate and even then we needed the divider.

Enjoy the next couple of restful nights.

Enjoy your sleep while it lasts

I used a 48" from the start, I divided it in about half and that lasted about two weeks before he outgrew that and I ended up just removing the divider completely. By the end of the two weeks I could trust him and we never had a issue

Cafall started in a 48" crate. We used the divider for several weeks, moving it to allow him more room as necessary. Worked just fine for us.
