Big Boy Bed

Here is Asher in one of his last "crib sleeps" on Tuesday afternoon. Look how big he's getting!

Here is Asher in his big boy bed, with the cowboy sheets, later that night. He looks suddenly very small!

In preparation for baby girl, Asher has made the transition to a "big boy bed." In the first photo, you can see him in his "third-to-last" sleep in the crib. The first night in the bed (Tuesday night) didn't work, because Gabriel was so excited to have a "roomie" that he woke him up when he went to bed in the upper bunk. But last night, it worked beautifully! And both boys came to wake us up in our room at 7:30 a.m. How much better can it get? I suppose there might be days where Ash is up at 5 a.m. and won't go back to bed, but I'll worry about that when it happens. Way to go Asher! We're so proud of our big boy! And Gabriel, we're proud of you too -- for sharing your space like such a gentleman!

Awww.... totally cute... He looks so tickled to be in a "big boy bed" that you can't really feel to sad. He sure has outgrown the crib!

Yep -- they'll wake you up together from this point on. Ella and Norah wake up pretty early and they always end up coming down together onto our bed. It's real cute -- Ella leads the way while holding Norah's hand. The other morning, I woke up to find the two of them sitting on our bed just observing us sleep. And sometimes, through the baby monitor I can hear one waking up the other, followed by Ella saying, "You want to go Mommy Daddy? Yeah?"

How cute is that! He does look small, in a big-boy bed. Sarah was moved at 21 months into a big bed and Emily at 20 months or so. By that time I'd had enough of skinned knuckles trying to change crib sheets! Emily went into a toddler bed, though, because the small bedroom would only accomodate that! She got a real big bed, when she was 4 and we moved into our house.
