Change is Good!

After exactly 29 months, Quinn slept in his crib for the very last time! He didn’t care. I was sentimental. I rocked him, read to him, sang to him and took pictures as he went “nigh-night” in his baby bed for the last time.

Moving things…Slickapw & Daddy brought home the mattress and box springs…Daddy took apart the crib…Quinn measured and hammered….and Mammer and I decorated. I loved doing all of it for my BIG boy…Big boy room and TIGER 070 Big boy room and TIGER 071 Quinn napped in our bed so that we could work while he slept. And, when he woke up, we told him that he had a “sussy” (a.k.a. surprise) waiting for him in his room. He ran with anticipation to see what was waiting for him. And, was extremely disappointed when the “sussy” was a bed! Wahhh! Wahhhhhhhh! It was our mistake for showing it to him with none of his cool stuff on it! …Big boy room and TIGER 077 Big boy room and TIGER 086 But, when bedtime came, it was a different story! He was ecstatic to climb up in his BIG BOY BED and read stories with Mommy! And, he slept brilliantly. I didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised when he made it through the night and called us to come and get him in the morning. …I have to admit that after 4 perfect nights, I’m over the fact that I don’t get to rock my baby anymore. Cuddling with him in his bed is even greater!!!

And, thank you Mammer and Slickpaw for a super cool big boy mattress and for all of your help to make Quinn’s room perfect in every way! We’re thankful for you!

So sweet! As much as I don't want Caroline to grow up too fast, I SO look forward to cuddling with her in her big girl bed. Quinn looks so cute in his big bed...can't wait to see the rest of his room!
