Time marches on

As this year comes to an end we have an end of an era of sorts at our house. We have had someone sleeping in a crib for over 6.5 years now- but not anymore! Collin has been able to climb into and out of his crib for a couple of weeks so we decided to convert his crib to a toddler bed. The other 2 boys never did learn to climb out so we kept them in the crib until they were 3 and potty training. Collin will be 3 in March so this is a little earlier, but he is ready. He hasn't climbed out of his crib when he shouldn't yet and I don't think he will with the new bed. He was so excited for his big boy bed! It was a bittersweet moment for me- glad to see my little guy so proud to be a big boy and sad that one of the last remaining baby things in our house is now gone. I handled it pretty well though, so maybe I'm ready to move on too. The only baby thing we have now is diapers. But moving on will mean potty training......ummm.....I don't think I'm ready for that quite yet!

So proud to be growing up!

Excited! When we checked on him a little while ago we found him sleeping on the floor. Looks like he fell out but either didn't wake up or went right back to sleep!

The boys had to jump on it. I think it's a rule.

And I found a good use for the bumpers!

That is so cute. I always said Collin would be the one to give you a run for your money. He is so full of life and everything else Including poop which is one of his favorite words and which he saves up to deposit and Grandma and Grandpa's house!!

Oh, such a fun stage! I remember when we put Miles in a big boy bed...I'm pretty sure I cried! :)
