closer to big.

So you see this cute kid here? Up until just a couple of days ago he was my baby (always will be but shhhh). He slept each and every night and nap in his crib...unable to escape...mostly because he still sleeps in a sleep sack (LOVE them). I left him with his daddy during his nap time to go run a couple of errands...and I get a call from Doug. "It's happened", he says. Moses has learned how to get out of his crib and when Doug went to go get him from his "nap" he was happily roaming his room...playing with all of his toys...
This is how Doug found him...wearing his shoes on top of his sleep sack (which is covered in yellow chalk because he was playing on his train table/chalkboard)...just look at that smug look on his face... :) When I got home we went up to his room...Doug picked Moses up, put him in the crib and told Moses to show daddy how he got out of the crib. And without ANY hesitation...he boosted himself up on the crib side and did a front FLIP out of the crib!!! We knew it was time...
And now my baby sleeps in a toddler bed...eventually we will move him to the single bed but my mommy heart could only take so much in a day without crying. It is SO sad to me. And the transition was like a dream...he was SO excited to sleep in the big boy bed that he didn't want us to read to him that night...he wanted to go to bed already...I was also needlessly stressed about naptime the next day and we had zero trouble then, too. This kid is such a blessing...I can't beleive it sometimes. This proves once again to Doug and I that the more we let him do things on his own time...and not ours...the easier life is for everyone involved...more of that in another post...
It's a good thing that Doug and I already have another baby in the works...this cutie arrived from April the other day....a sweet reminder for baby A's room...
...This cute shirt along with...
...this (the banner) from Julie...arrived as well. Love that she matched the papers I used in his initials. :)
And a couple more sweet little goodies from another bloggy/etsy friend Trish. :) Thank you ALL sweet friends!! :) You are some of the best bloggy neighbors a girl could ask for and I LOVE all that you sent. :)
And just because I can...
I loved this sweet little deer so much that he needed to be on a towel...with white pom poms to boot...SO cute!! These are both in the shop.

Hope you are enjoying a fine and fabulous weekend...don't forget to enter the giveaway below. :)

I have been struggling with those same feelings....it's so hard watching them get big. I have a love/hate thing with them growing up....

Oh little babies grow way to fast. I love those sleep sacks. We have so many in differnt sizes (I bought mine from europe and they are so well made) my kids slept in the sacks untill they were about three or four. My little one still asks to sleep in his and he can run and walk in it:) Have a great day.

I can't believe Mr. Escape Artist!!! That's crazy!!! I am so glad he likes the crib without the rails. Love the Ikea bedspread too. I bought one just for the fabric. Tell me where you got the big sleepsacks. I have only seen them little.

What wonderful goodies from your friends! So much talent.

I remember feeling sad when David moved to his big boy bed...and now he wants bunk beds! At least you will have a little one in the crib soon. :)

I found the switch to the big boy bed so welcoming--but that was w/ #2 and sadly-at the time, #1 was still in bed w/ us (something we fought every night and never seemed to win--and did it DIFFERENTLY w/ #2!) We were blessed, like you, with an easy transition. He did it just before his second b-day too. No climbing out of his crib--we had a twin bed in his room, as well, and he just began crawling up there, asking to sleep there. Never got out, for naps, etc. I remember how bittersweet it was, for ME, taking the crib apart. I cried. (Knowing it was probably the last time "up"). Hope things continue to go smoothly! Update, as you have time, on this!
