Well, it’s a monumental day. At one day shy of 3 years and 2 months old, Declan is now sleeping in a BIG BOY BED (insert Darth Vader theme music). We set it up just now and he was very excited. Let’s hope that excitement also means he will actually sleep in it. As I type this, I hear him rustling and breathing deeply through the monitor, so I am optimistic.
But what a crossroads.
I took pictures (duh) and, of course, I will add on to this thread later.
The funny thing is I am not as upset as I thought I would be. Rather excited actually. Many of my mom friends transitioned closer to 2yo, but Declan was just not ready (I promise I was not holding it back, in a vain effort to hold on to babyhood!). Even though this still surprises my mother to no end, Declan never tried to climb out of his crib and really has been content there these past 3 years. But lately he has been getting too big for the crib and, more importantly, shitting his pants during nap. 🙂 So we decided to just go for it.
And in his usual Declan way, he is totally taking the whole thing in stride. I love that kid.
