Big boy bed...


Could my baby really be in a big boy bed already? I was sure that it was going to be a tough transition and I had prepared in advance for many sleepless nights of telling him that he couldn't sleep in his crib anymore. But again, he surprised us and as soon as Parker saw the cute little toddler bed, he got a huge grin on his face and climbed right in. I think parents generally underestimate their children on these sorts of things...they are so much more adaptable that we are!

We've had a few minor glitches, but nothing major. The first night, Parker woke up once and stood in the middle of his bedroom quite confused, until I told him the monkey was still in bed. He then climbed back in and drifted off:) I have a sneaking suspicion that he actually fell out of bed, but seriously, he's like 10 inches off the floor! And then last night, I went in and checked on him and his whole lower half of his body was hanging off of the bed with his feet dangling an inch above the floor! Parker is just so cute about his bed and this smooth transition makes me all the more confident that he'll welcome the new baby with another huge grin:) I will always be able to tell Parker that he was the baby that made us want more...he's such a good boy!

And by the way...these pictures are from nap time today. We really don't put him to bed fully clothed and while it is still light!

What a big boy! Way to go Parker!

I remember Emily getting her big-girl bed... the first day it was set up I found her walking around it saying "I like it!" and the second night she was going to sleep in it, she came up to me and said "Can I go to bed now?" I said "No... it's only 5 'o clock!" Needless to say, she loved it, and it was a SMOOTH transition too!

So glad Parker is doing well with this new step in growing up.

Blessings,
Julie
