Toddler Bed

A few weeks ago Ty had mastered climbing out of the pack-n-play at my parent's house... We were waiting for the day that he would attempt his crib. We were hoping to make it until Christmas break before moving him to a big boy bed, but we had no choice but to make the switch early.... It was Saturday night at about 1 and we heard Ty crying, then it stopped for a minute, and then he started crying again but it seemed to be getting louder... and closer.... all of a sudden, there was Ty at our door! When he saw me, he stopped crying, asked for "up", and when I picked him up I could tell he was SO proud of himself. He began to jabber away like he was telling me all about this new thing that he had accomplished... Not only had he gotten out of bed, but he was WIDE AWAKE. We tried everything to get him back to sleep, with no success. He slept from abut 6am - 7am, and that was it, meaning he was up basically the entire night.

The next afternoon, I had to see how he did this.... here is his new mastered skill.... He has quite the look on his face...

It amazes me how fast he could get out!
Here is a picture of his crib....

Now turned into a toddler bed! Don't mind the blue/orange blanket, it's an extra little edge to keep Ty from rolling out which he did at naptime! This is just a temporary bed for him for about the next month. Around Christmas he will be moving into a different room, which will become his "big boy" room (sports themed of course.....) and we'll turn this room back into a nursery and this back into a crib for baby #2!
I can't believe our little man is so grown up!


  1. Aww....he IS a determined little guy, isn't he! :o) Hopefully he will find all these bed changes less interesting pretty quick, and go back to sleeping like normal soon!!!

  2. Hopefully, now that he has a bed, he won't feel the need to come visit in the middle of the night. lol
