Big Boy Bed Update

So it's been about a month since we moved Britton to the twin bed.

The first night was almost flawless.  We only had to go in once.  Lewis went in to check on him and he had gotten out of the bed and was playing.  As soon as he saw Lewis, he RAN back to bed. 

And he slept ALL night.   Without falling out.

Naps were awesome, too.

This went on for about 2 weeks.  I was floored by how easy the transition was going.  I didn't want to jinx it by posting here on how awesome Britton was doing in the big boy bed.

But since it's been a month now, I think this big boy bed is gonna stick!  He has done so so so good.  He has only fallen out once.  Lewis went in to check on him since he was crying and he said he was just sitting on the rug crying.  As soon as he was back in bed, he went right back to sleep.  Sometimes, he does take a while to stop "talking" to himself, but he rarely gets out of the bed.  We have found him "reading" a book or just sitting there talking.

For the most part, he stays in bed in the morning until I come get him.  But he has gotten to where he gets out of bed on his own and comes into our room.  Thankfully, it's usually at 7am or later.  He opens the door slowly and say, "Mommy?"  It is really quite cute.

I finally put up his denim drapes, we got him a navy rug, a navy blanket, and I painted a navy "B" to replace the "baby blue B" he had on the wall.  We moved the baby blue B to the nursery.

His room looks quite nice.

I am so thankful the transition went well.
