Big Boy Bed

His face looks shiny because I put lotion on it right before bed.

It finally happened. Austin started trying to climb out of his crib. I was hoping to keep him in there as long as I could but the time has come and he is ready. We have a crib that converts into a toddler bed. We asked Austin if he wanted to sleep in his crib or a big boy bed and he excitedly told us a big boy bed like Gavin. So we switched the bed in the morning. For his nap he cried for an hour and then fell asleep on the floor. The next day he stayed quiet in his room for two hours but never slept and then today he played for a little bit then slept in his bed for his nap. He has been doing great at night. After we read books and say a prayer he climbs in without a fuss and lays down. Then he doesn't get out. He has been sleeping in longer too. I don't think it could be going any smoother. And thanks again Patty for the beautiful quilt and Rachel for the caterpillar. Austin loves them both.

The quilt fits perfectly in that bed! Austin looks like he will do anything as long as you put him in a picture.

Way to go Brielle! That is a big step for you as well as Austin. That is great that he took to it so well.
So what time do you do nap time with him and when does he go to bed at night and get up in the morning?? I have been fiddling with the girls schedule for a few days trying to find what works better for them.
It is awful that we live so far away. I think Elsa and Austin would LOVE playing together!
How have you been feeling lately? How is your tiny one treating you?? :)

It is so great that he has adjusted to well! We have the same type of crib that converts but Noah kept falling out of it. He liked to sleep pressed up against the bars and when they were gone he would just roll right out. People said he would figure it out but after a couple of nights I couldn't take it and we got one of those guard rail things. Anyway, yay for Austin-in a big boy bed, and loving it!

Looking at your blog this morning and Eli starts making snoring noises when he sees Austin 'sleeping' I still love your idea for his room decor. SO cute!
