Night #3 in Big Boy Bed

We took the plunge and moved Nickolas into the bottom bunk in Kolbe's room on Sunday night. *Gulp

About 2 weeks ago there was a bad thunderstorm, and then the time change and it really through Nickolas out of whack with his sleeping schedule. Before then, he had been sleeping until 7:30-8 in the morning (heavenly). After the storm, he's be up between 5 and 6 and sobbing (like a scared scream) when we would leave him in his crib.

Time for change.

Switched to the big boy bed for several reasons. That being one of them. Another was that I can't pick him up and lay him into the crib as easily. Also, I want him to be transitioned and comfortable in there before the baby gets here so it's no big deal that the baby now has that room.

I had been dreading this move.

I have to say, I'm surprised at how well he's done. First night took about an hour for bedtime routine. Tonight it took about 30 minutes. It's nice because we can get them both to bed at the same time. Brush, read a book, song then bed. We have been sitting in the room until Nickolas pretty much asleep, which is pretty quick, and he doesn't try to get out of bed. The biggest challenge is keeping Kolbe quiet in the top bunk and crossing our fingers he won't have to get up to go potty 10 times and wake Nick up.

So far so good.

Lots of changes for Nickolas this week. Moving rooms, bed and now a new classroom at school He's having a tough week! Wait until #3 comes!

I was surprised at how well Garrick handled the transition to big boy bed. Those little guys are very tough.
