Is it really time??

I can't believe that my little boy, my very first born child is already 2. It seems like yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital and took this picture of him......

Time has flown by and he is now not so little. I am realizing that every day. He is learning in leaps and bounds. He keeps us on our toes. He is a climber and is very adventurous. Has very little fear and an insatiable love for life. I think he not only looks like his dad but acts very much like him too.

We have been very blessed that he is a good, no, make that great sleeper. He has been from birth. He was consistently sleeping 8+ hours at night by 4 weeks and has always been a great napper too. Until the last few weeks, he never tried to get out of his crib!! But then it started. It was a constant battle to get him to stay in bed. Once he was asleep, he was good to go but getting there became a challenge.        

He recently spent the weekend with my parents. They took him "camping" for the day and he spent the night at their house. The second day during nap time, my mom was not home to put him down. The men had to figure it out. Anyway, he ended up sleeping in a regular bed! And he stayed there for his 3 hour nap with out getting out or falling out!!

So, it seemed apparent that it was time for the "big boy bed". He was asking for it and seemed ready.

He was so proud of his new bed........

He showed up how he was going to sleep like a big boy...........

And this is how he really slept..........

I love that he is hugging his pillow. Sleeping boys are the most beautiful sight in the world to a mommy!

  1. you are such a great mom! Eli is a great sleeper too. At the age of 6 he still takes naps sometimes... he just needs them! Love that!!!n Jasper started crawling out of his crib at 2.5 years or a little later and so we switched over and it worked great!
