Ethan's big boy bed!

1.04.2009

Ethan got his first big boy bed last night. Josh picked it up from his parents house yesterday. This bed is solid oak and was Josh's when he was little. It is awesome. It is actually Bunkbeds. But we are only using half of it for now. ethan's first night in his big boy bed



Ethan was totally excited to have this bed. He couldn't stay off of it. It was really cute. We weren't sure if he was really ready for a big bed or not. But when Josh's parents so nicely offered the bunkbeds to us...how could we say no. Altho his crib turns into a regular bed...these were awesome. Plus when we have another baby we will have a crib for him/her. So we told Ethan that in order to be in the big boy bed you can't have your binkie and you need to potty on big potty. Well he still got the binkie. Not sure I could do a new bed and take away binkie. One thing at a time. But while we had family visiting Ethan would want to go on the potty. So we let him. He did it many times...while is great. But we now need to keep it up. Wasn't totally ready for that...LOL His cousin Maiya is 2 yrs old and she is in big girl undies and Ethan watched her going potty and thought it was cool...That's how he got it. So he understands it, now he just need to do it.
Back to the big boy bed.....we went and got some sheets and a quilt for his bed last night so he could sleep in it. There was no way of him sleeping in his crib after seeing the big bed. We ventured out to Big Lots. We came back and washed the sheets really quick so we could put him to bed. It was pretty late by this time.

It wasn't easy getting him to stay in bed after putting him down. I put him back to bed like 4-5 times before I just decided to stay in there til he fell asleep. It was only about 10-15 minutes that I stayed in there. Not to bad.ethan's first night in his big boy bed
this morning
So now I am trying to get him to take a nap in his bed. We aren't having any luck so far. hahaha He is playing around, locked me out (he did unlock it after I told him to), reading and what not. I told him again to stay in bed and go to sleep. We shall see what happens.

Yay for Ethan!

It's good to see him growing up and graduating to a big boy bed! Now you really need to get ahold of that binkie situation.

P.S. I see the same picture twice in this post?

Woohoo! Way to go Ethan!

Maiya may be in big girl panties but she has nothing on that fantastic bed! (We've already decided that she's staying in her crib until she's 18....haha!)

(Sorry for Jump-Starting the pottying! It happened the same way with Grayer: Monkey see, monkey do!)

I put Jordan in a big bed at 15 months, and Karsyn at around 17 I think. I think he is totally ready. His communication level is great, so you will be able to talk to him and comfort him more easily because of that.

Now you just need the paci fairy to visit and take that thing!!
