Mr Nolan has moved into a toddler bed. This was much earlier than I hoped- I was hoping for when he turned 6. Or at least 3. Seriously, I was hoping he'd be in the crib until he was 3. So yesterday when he climbed out of bed we realized the dreaded date is much earlier than age 3. Sadly this morning he was up and out of his crib only 15 minutes after I heard the first peep out of him. It's weird to go into his room and have him standing there. I knew he was out of bed because he was knocking on the door. Thank goodness we fixed it so it shuts all the way now. Unfortunately the stern talk we had with him about not getting out of bed until Mom or Dad comes to get him didn't 'take'.
So here he is. And here's his new bed. He already loves to climb on it, lay on it, and is pretty proud of himself that he's now in a big boy bed. I fear the next several days of No Nap Nolan. I guess I'll give him an hour or so of 'trying' to nap before I get him.
So here he is making sure he can do all the things he normally does- like tuck himself into the covers and pretend to sleep- notice he almost fell out of it while attempting this? Awesome. We did a few practice takes of him going to sleep. Then me coming in and saying the magic words that he's allowed to get out of his bed. I just don't think he remembers/cares very much about this rule. This guy is growing up fast. Lots of changes for him. Next week he'll be allowed to ride in his car seat facing forward, too! Lots of changes. I hope he's more flexible than I am!
