Big Boy Bed

We finally put up Ashton's big boy bed yesterday. We bought it the end of June when the Johnstons came to visit and we took a trip to IKEA. I have been hesitant to put it up because I was afraid of how it would affect Ashton's bedtime routine. Right now things are great when it is time to go to bed we put him in the crib and he lays down and that is it. He can't crawl out of it and he doesn't cry it is awesome.
Jason put the bed together yesterday and we got it all set up while Ashton was busy eating lunch when he was done eating we took him to his room, he got so excited and climbed right up in the bed and started playing. We left the crib up in his room in case things didn't go so well. When it was time to go to bed, we layed him down with his blanket and a sippy cup and said goodnight and left the room. He stayed in bed all night, we kept checking on him to make sure he was okay. This morning when he woke up he sat up and climbed out of bed and came to find us. He seemed pretty proud of himself for getting out of bed and coming to find us it was really cute.

I am really hoping that this is a good sign as to how he will make this transition and I was just worrying for nothing. I can't believe that my baby is getting so big, it makes me a little sad to think about it sometimes.

Yay! I love the big boy cute. :) He'll probably go through phases as he realizes he's got some new freedom, but so long as you're consistent he should be fine. You'll need the crib again pretty soon! :)
