When we were in Highlands for Thanksgiving, Spencer slept great in a twin bed. We decided that maybe it was time to move him out of his crib at home too! I’m not really sure why we thought it was a good idea, but Spencer seemed to be on board so we got that big boy bed on order! Funny – we also moved Maxwell into a big boy bed right after Christmas in January 2012. Maxwell was 3 years and 5 months. Spencer was 3 years and 2 months.
A few days before Spencer’s bed arrived, I went in to get him up from his nap and he was still sound asleep. I couldn’t resist snapping a photo of my baby in his crib. I love how he would put his monkey blanket on top of his elephant to use as his pillow. Of course, Puppy was in his hand!
The night before his bed was going to arrive, I snapped a photo of his last sleep in his crib. By the way, Spencer is a GREAT sleeper – never wakes at night and takes fantastic naps every day. This boy loooves his zzzzzzs! He was also about to bust out of that XXL sleep sack! ha!
When the boys came home from school that day, his big boy bed was all set up and ready to go! Complete with jungle sheets!!
Spencer said “it has yi-ons!! I yuh-ve it!” Translation: It has lions! I love it! 🙂
He then immediately started jumping on his bed!
First nap didn’t go too well. Too much excitement for sure! That night, he was still pretty excited and big brother helped get him tucked in…
Unfortunately, the first few nights were a little rough! He woke up several times just having trouble getting his covers straight, his pillow situated, etc. He’s gotten better though and, after a week is on a string of sleeping all night and even taking good naps during the day! Hooray! My baby is growing up and I don’t think I like it one bit. Thank goodness I’ve still got another crib with a baby in it in the room next door!
ps – Maxwell wanted some jungle sheets too so his bed got a little upgrade! 🙂
