So Daddy put together his big boy bed. His crib was transformable, just like Julie's. Except his went into a twin bed. We decided to skip the toddler bed and go for it.
When he first climbed up, he was so excited! Then, within minutes, he was fast asleep.
He transitioned so well! In fact, the first few mornings, he didn't realize he could get down all by himself without having us get him (or hurting himself) so he called for us to come get him up!
And every night, when I lay him down, he pats the pillow next to him and says "Momma Nighnight?" I can never resist just a quick snuggle.
And of course, he has even had a visitor from time to time, but he doesn't seem to mind.
