Big Boy Bed

In preparations for our new baby to come we decided it was time to get Will a bed and get him used to sleeping in it. My parents gave us a mattress for him for Christmas so we went out and got him a bed and set it up. He was so excited to have it in his room so we thought it was going to be a piece of cake to transition him. It actually hasn't been too bad. We have it pushed up against the wall and his changing table pushed up on the other side so it is basically a crib but it keeps him from falling out...or at least we thought it would. The first night he rolled around so much that he rolled off the end. He hasn't fallen off since and doesn't really get down until I come and get him. My kids are weird that way. When she was younger, Meg would wake up in the morning or from a nap and would knock on the door until I went and got her...and she could open the door. Will's bed is pretty high but I have a stool by it so he can climb on and off. He climbs all over it during the day, but when I put him to bed or down for a nap he doesn't get down. He is getting to be such a big boy. It makes me a little sad, but I guess it has to happen since there is another baby on the way. We love our little Gus so much.

I had to include this picture because I thought it was so cute. When Meg's away at school or dance, Will gets to do all kinds of things that he normally would be in trouble (by Meg) for. This day he found her i-pod and was having the greatest time listening to her music. He is such a funny little guy.

My kids are the same way! When Sydney was younger she would yell she was ready to get up. Zander does the same thing now!
And Zander, too, gets away with more when sissy is at school... He likes ot play with all the stuff she doesn't let him play with!!
