Braden has been in his big boy bed for 2 weeks now and it is going great! We had absolutely no problems with the transition. He didn't even really say anything about it the first night, it was like he had been in it forever. Silly me for worrying about it...go figure.
The first night he crawled in and this is where he slept. He just really loves that closed in feeling I guess.
(First night in big boy bed - 2/26/11)
I went in several times throughout the night and he slowly moved his way around the bed and the last time I checked he was getting close to the end. So I piled up some pillows and blankets on the floor just in case. Then all the sudden at about 6am I hear *thump* and his door goes flying open and he looks at me and says, "I fall out Mama!" It was so sad and funny at the same time. Funny only because he was fine (and the look on his face.) The entire day whenever anyone asked him about his big boy bed all he would tell them was "I fall out." I kept thinking: great, I bet tonight won't go so well now. But it went fine, climbed right in and curled up again. Hallelujah! He won't even get out by himself, in the morning he will just lay in there and talk until we go get him. (Alexa was the same way...how lucky are we!?) :)
He has since ventured out a little bit and will sometimes even lay the long way.
He loves his big boy bed! YAY!
