Big Boy Bed
We made the transition to a big boy bed this weekend - it's a toddler bed, essentially a crib with a lower front rail. All in all it went smoothly. We made a big production out of saying goodbye to the crib and taking the front off (it's a convertible crib) and putting the new rail on - it was very exciting. After "testing it out" Stuart declared "I love my new bed and Mickey loves it too." Mickey Mouse that is, his trusted sleeping companion. My concern was that he would start getting out if he woke up rather than staying in bed, but so far he has stayed put until we come to get him - hopefully that will continue! In keeping with the big boy theme we also put on big boy underwear - with the Thomas the Train - over his diaper. Needless to say he was beyond thrilled. He has been using the potty for a while now but we haven't pushed it because he didn't seem ready to really be potty trained, but I think we'll start encouraging it more. A big boy bed and big boy underwear - every little boy's dream!
