Big Boy Bed...

 How can he be ready for a big bed already?  It's impossible!  Our little man is growing up so quickly.  He's been able to crawl out of his crib for a long time already but he rarely did.  Until a month ago.  We could not get him to stay in his crib at all!  I was worried he was going to fall and hurt himself so we decided to do the big transfer.  I was prepared for a few weeks of tough transistion from crib to bed, and possibly back to crib.  Guess what?  He hasn't looked back!  He LOVES his 'big boy bed'!  We had a spare bed in his room already so it was just a matter of getting it ready (well, really, a matter of me figuring out where I would move my clean laundry dumping grounds to).
I got out the toolbox and removed the 'somewhat' feminine brass headboard.  Isaac picked up his tools and lent a hand in the project.  Since the only single bedding available in the closet was flannel princess sheets a trip to the store for 'manly' bedding was necessary.  I have much grander plans for a cute bedroom for him, but this will have to do for now!  The crib is still there, I'm not ready to take it down yet.  He might be, but not me. (sniff) So, first night in his big bed, and every night since he's doing just fine.  Each night he says...'goo-night mom, I sleep in my BIG BOY BED!'  Now that the novelty has worn off a little he's pushing his luck a little getting up a few times right after we put him to bed, but really he's doing great all in all!  So proud of our little man.


  1. he is soooooo cute Andrea! love the pic of him sleeping.

  2. Ahhh yes, the coveted be-bo-bed! I remember the days...

  3. He is so sweet! I cannot believe how much he looks like Abby in the close-up of him sleeping...that's the first time I've seen it. So cool that the transition is going smoothly!

  4. I noticed on Sunday that he is really starting to look like a little man, so grown up. He sure looks pleased with himself in that big boy bed!
