Big BIG Boy Bed

Honestly, I have never seen my son as excited as he was yesterday when he got his big bed!  I was told he could barely contain himself while the delivery men set up the mattress and he literally threw himself into bed for his nap. 

He was so cute, making me close my eyes and leading me by the hand into his room when I got home from work so I could see.  He was beaming from ear to ear!

He looks so adorable...his tiny self, in this big bed.  It's just another sign of his independence.  It felt really good to lay by him in bed, read him a story and "nuggle." 

I had high hopes that his elation would continue when it was time to turn out the lights and go to sleep.  I envisioned my big boy quietly telling me he was so tired from the excitement of the day and that I could quiely leave him to his thoughts and books.  Ha, nice try Mommy.  Hey, it worked at naptime?!?

I am going to chalk-up the over 2-hour bedtime drama to jitters about the first night with something new and that tonight will be smooth sailing.  Hey, a girl can dream!


  1. Is that a Tommy Hilfiger bedspread? I think my son has the same one. :D

  2. It is Pottery Barn Kids. When I found out I was having a boy...I COULDN'T WAIT until I could get a madras quilt for a big bed...and here it is :)

  3. Love the new blog look! Thanks for your post on my home birth --you would have been AWESOME. It was absolutely amazing. Keep it on your bucket list, your day will come. :) And, I love the new big boy bed. I can't wait to get one for Barrett!!!
