Last week we ordered Braden's new Big Boy furniture for his room. I was secretly hoping it would take a month or two (or six) to come, but nope, lucky us it's in and ready to be picked up. I am dreading this transition for so many reasons.
First of all, HE'S MY BABY! I just feel like I'm not ready for him to get bigger and somehow if he stays in the crib he will stay little.
(It should totally work that way. I would have 3 cribs in this house if it did.)
Second, I don't think he's going to be all that excited about the move. He has been very anti-big boy lately and has even told us he likes his crib and doesn't want a big bed. Yeah, that was our first clue.
But alas, all good things must come to an end. A lot of people have commented that we need to do it before the next one comes so he doesn't feel like the baby is taking it away from him and all that kind of logical stuff. That's definitely a good reason but really, our kids are in our room for a good six months or more so keeping him in the crib for awhile after the baby is born is not a big deal.
I think this might be a better reason to upgrade...
(Please ignore the chewed up railings, that would be from our sweet little girl who had a major fascination with eating the crib.)
Seriously this is where he sleep every single night. Most nights he's on his tummy with his legs all squished up under him but he is almost always laying the short way and all the way to one side. The boy needs to be forced to stretch out a little bit!
This weekend is the weekend. Wish us luck.
