It feels like just yesterday we were moving Pearson to his big boy bed.
Oh wait, it was just a little over a year ago that we were doing this with Pearson. Pearson was in his crib until he was 3 years and 7 months old. Nash is only 2 years 2 months old. We are doing it WAY sooner this go round, not because we wanted to, but because we had to. Nash climbed out of his crib for the first time sometime before Christmas. He only did it once but would try every now and then. Every time we put him to bed we would just watch his monitor like a hawk to make sure he wasn't trying to climb out. I thought we were smooth sailing in our crib until all the sudden last night he climbed out 4 times. We probably could have pushed it a little longer but I was just so scared he would fall the wrong way and break his neck. Definitely not worth the risk.
When it was time for bed, we did our bedtime routine as normal…….told Daddy & Bubba night-night, read Big Red Barn, read Brown Bear Brown Bear, read our Bible story, said our prayers, sang Jesus Loves Me, gave him his "meh-sin" (zyrtec), tucked Mickey in, then tucked him in. He laid right now and I had high hopes that he would go to sleep just as he always does.
Night-Night big boy!!
It took about an hour and half longer for him to go to sleep than normal, but I didn't think that was too bad for his first night. He slept all night and woke up at 6:30. He sat up for a few minutes then laid back down and slept until 7:15. I'd call that a successful first night!For his first nap time, he laid right down and fell asleep within 5 minutes. I have his Mother's Day Out teachers to thank for this. They sleep on mats at MDO and his teachers always say he is the first to fall asleep. I guess when you play hard you sleep hard.
I just laid him down for bed and it went just like it always did in his crib. No fussing at all. He laid right down and was asleep in about 10 minutes.
We are so proud of our big boy! He's growing up way to fast.
Now if we could just get rid of that paci!!!
