Big Boy


The time has come. One more step toward being a big boy. Sunday afternoon, the kids down for naps, I made a diaper run to Target. While I was there, Kevin called to tell me that he had gone to check on Beth and heard a little noise behind him. Sure enough, it was Jacob. He'd climbed out of his crib, opened his door and headed down the hall. It scared the tar out of Kevin to see Jacob when he didn't expect to. I only wish I could have seen the look on their faces! Needless to say, there was no nap that day, with the excitement of a new trick. Sunday night, he was still in the crib. Monday morning, he knocked on the inside of his closed door to let us know he was up, at 6:10am. I got upstairs before he could try to come down without help (he's not quite good enough yet). That afternoon, we made the switch to the toddler bed. He is just so proud of his big boy bed. He loves getting in and out of it. He loves that Beth can rest in the bed with him. He still thinks it's fun to get out and peek out of his door when he's supposed to be sleeping. Needless to say, we have some work to do on sleep training in the bed and STAYING in his room. Momma needs a good night sleep, even if Jacob doesn't.

You mean he won't just stay in bed until 8:00 like Beth did? :)

Eight O, O, were her words. Or was it seven O, O?
All aboard for adventure with Jacob! He is smart. He will understand. Boundries are hard for parents and kiddos.
