Big Boy Bed

Once we got through Max's surgery, it was time to work on Operation Max and Ben Share a Room. The first step? Max had to move into his big boy bed. I was kind of nervous that it wouldn't go well since he has not tried to climb out and is pretty much in love with his crib. For several days I thought we were getting somewhere, because when I asked if he was going to sleep in his big boy bed he would get excited and say, "Yes!" Then one afternoon I asked him to point out his big boy bed, and he pointed to his crib. Fail.

We went ahead and bought a rail for the twin bed, and we thought we would just try it at nap time. He slept really well, so we thought we would do bedtime too. That worked also, and we've never looked back. The first couple nights he woke up kind of confused a few times because he would get turned around in bed and it felt so different. There have also been a couple of times the built-ins in the living room have started to shake because he's rolled into the wall so hard! Overall, though, he is officially a big boy bed kind of guy!

(The picture above is of the first night in the bed. It is now full of pillows, stuffed animals, and blankets. He has developed quite a little system to keep himself comfy and cozy!)
