Big Boy Bed


Mackinley has graduated from his crib to a big boy bed! The transition has gone so much better than we anticipated. The first night in it, he went right to sleep and we never heard a peep from him all night! It's been that way every night and naptime since! We're so proud of our little man, but it's kind of sad to see him growing up so fast! He actually runs to his room by himself at bedtime now because he loves his new bed so much! And yes, he has to have ALL his friends in bed with him. LOL

always nice when they adjust better then you thought they would :)


Syd LOVED her big girl bed at once....Katie STILL wants to be the baby and she's going to be 5 in July! She would have slept in a crib till college I think if we had given her that option :P

You can never guess how they will react I guess LOL

Hey Chrissy!

Do you have a new blog yet??

Keri said...

Hmm I clicked on your profile and answered my own question! You need some posts, girl!!!

Chrissy said...

I know! I have been so crazy that life is flying by, I think I may just have to start posting and not obsess with "catching up" on all the stuff I haven't posted. That is seriously what keeps me from starting the blog, the 15 BILLION (well maybe not that many) pictures I would need to post to get to the current day :P

For you pretty mama I will try to get back on it :)

soon.....

He looks soooooo cute in his "big boy" bed.

He looks all grown up! I'm so glad he transitioned well for you guys. Madelyn still climbs out of her bad, so she spends most of her nights in her crib. We need a plan since the new little one can't use a bassinet forever...

Keri said...

Jaena-I think what has made it so easy for him is we bought a bed rail, you can see it in the "folded down position" in the top picture. It's pretty tall and long and I think it makes his bed feel like a crib. I got it from Target.com for like $25...just an idea for you!

YAY for big boy beds! haha Love the baseball field on the wall! Looks comfy no wonder he loves it so much!!

What a sweetheart!!!! He looks so cuddly and cozy with all his animals!! Bless his precious little heart.

Sorry he got Papoo's cold!! Glad you are feeling better Keri!!

Chicago is coming to Dosta in April. If you lived close, we would keep the road "hot" going to Symphonies and plays and let the "big" boys watch hockey!!!

Keri said...

I wish all the time that we lived close to you, Grammy!!! How fun to see a show with you!

Who says the baby can't stay in the bassinet forever? Sarah's still there and she's almost 8 months old :) We just haven't moved the crib to her room just yet. Always something else to do - like sleep!
His room is very cute :) I love the ball diamond on the wall!

I posted a message for you on Kamma's so-journ blog. Let me know if you and Korie forgot about the "pin" laugh we had at the condo.

Would be nice to be closer but you are always in our hearts and prayers.
