Big Boy Bed

On Sunday, we build my son's big boy bed.  We are moving him strait from his crib to a twin bed, and got him some really awesome 'Toystory' set.  However, with my son being sick, he was less receptive to it that I would have liked.  Here is what it looks like.

Wednesday night, (the one night I work and don't put my son to bed) he decided that he wanted to sleep in his big boy bed.  I snuck in and took a quick picture, because this kid NEVER stays still when he sleeps.  Apologies for the blurriness, I was trying to take it, without him waking up.  I also put tons of pillows on the floor just incase he should wiggle out of bed in the middle of the night.

I was most apprehensive about the next morning.  Would he get up and play? Call for us like normal?  If he woke up early would he not go back to sleep?  Well he woke up at 5am, I'm not sure if he fell out of bed, or got out himself, but he started crying and when I got into his room, he was standing next to his big boy bed.  When I picked him up he wanted back in his crib, and I obliged.  Just in case he did fall out, this fancy bed rail went up the next day.

If he did fall, this will prevent it from happening again (though I really think he got out of bed and freaked out because he wasn't used to the new bed).  I should have put it up 1st, but I wanted to see if he really needed it.  I am so excited about this transition, mostly because we need the crib for our sweet baby girl who will soon be moving into her big brother's room, but also because he is totally ready for a big boy bed.



PS For the month of September I will be doing a Tip's for Toddler's Tuesday series, and I'm super excited about it!
