Colin is in a big boy bed.
... and yes I cried.
He has done so well! I am so proud of him! I wasn't worried about it. I mean this had to happen. I wanted to wait until after all of our holiday traveling was over to make the transition. Colin's crib does convert into a toddler bed and then into a full bed... but I am using that crib for Addison, so I wanted Colin to be out of it now so that he wouldn't try to reclaim it when she got here and it was re-set up. We got a bed frame/headboard/footboard from Garet's mom. (it was Garet's when he was little) So, we got all the fixin's (ya know, mattress, box spring, mattress pad, sheets, pillows...) and did it.
I wanted Colin to nap first in the big boy bed, in case it went bad it would be a messed up nap time not a messed up bed time. But I put him down and he went right to sleep!
We peeked at him and that is the pic above... when I got him up from his nap he was completely opposite =) Which is actually why there isn't any bedding. (it is backordered and will be here in Feb... but C just kicks the sheets off anyway right now).
He did fall out of bed last night. It scared me so bad! It was about 2:30 in the morning... I heard a big thump thump and knew exactly what it was! I was up and out of bed and running to his room in a second - and I fell. Not once, but twice. And I got C up so fast that he didn't even have time to get a big cry out. He fell right back asleep. Thankfully! I just didn't want it to traumatize him! But Garet and I were awake for hours afterwards! I was laughing so hard at myself - I was trying to picture my pregnant self flopping around down the hall into Colin's room! HA! Just glad I didn't get hurt!
Anyway, so far this has been a great transition. So proud of my big boy.
