Do you have any? How much have they changed in the last year?
This week Alek has become Mr. Independant. I leave the side of his crib down (yes, I have a drop side crib and have never had a problem with it) so he will climb into his crib and wait for me to come and put the side up. Then, he'll spend about 5 minutes trying to get his blanket on and will NOT let me help. Then, I have to put my hand flat on his mattress through the slats and he will lay his head on my hand for about 5 minutes. Once he's done with that, it's a rearrangment of his pillow and asleep within 5 minutes.
Eli gets put in his crib, he lays across the end of it, kinda squished up on a pillow and he holds his sippy cup of water and goes to sleep. He's been pretty much doing it this way since he started sleeping in the crib quite some time ago. He also wants a blanket on, but he will let us put it on and he generally stays under it pretty well for a while. He moves around a lot in the crib at night but he doesn't really wake up and make much noise in the night.
Our bedtime has changed tons in the last year! Kali was in our bed until the week she potty trained. It was a huge week for her. She did the 3 day potty training thing and I stopped the night time nursing, and she began to sleep in her toddler bed next to ours. 2 weeks later we transitioned her to her room using a routine. We call it "Bath time, brush time (hair and teeth), book time, bed time." she loves to say it and do it.

Ashlynn's routine has changed a lot in the past year. Since a bit after the move, she now sleeps in her own room in her toddler bed. We usually do a bath if she needs one, then she will brush her teeth and I will brush her hair if that needs to be done..though she has very odd hair that frizzes more when brushed so that's fun.
Then SO and I help her find her bedtime things, then we tuck her in and give hugs/kisses and she zonks out shortly after we leave the room.
Prior to the move it was somewhat the same, except she didn't have her own room and most of her bedtime things were already in her bed since she didn't have access to her bed during the day. Now she does 24/7
