Big Kid Beds

Last week, June 8th to be exact, we made the switch to big kid beds. They were more than ready and many people couldn't believe they were still in cribs at age 3. Never once did they try to climb out. If they had, I would have switched at that point but I just thought it was time--especially with being fully potty trained now. They need access to the bathroom if needed. Ryan was perfectly content in his crib and actually said he wanted to sleep in his crib and whimpered a bit while falling asleep for his first naptime in the bed and the first night he slept in the bed. The first few days they woke earlier than usual, but they have since gotten back on track. They also stay in their beds in the morning until I come get them. We'll see how long this lasts. I was worried about them wandering around or worse being woken up with one of them standing directly in front of my face.

Here they are the morning of the last night they slept in their cribs.

Now we are on to redecorating their rooms. Ryan's walls have been painted light and dark blue, but the trim still needs to be painted and he needs furniture. Kaylie will finally get her "girly" room. Her crib was just transplanted into our blue guest room when the two of them couldn't be in the same room anymore. She hasn't had a room to call her own, so she will get it now. We plan to paint it pink of course, put up wainscoting and crown moulding, and order her white furniture. Here are the comforter sets.

Kaylie refuses to get under the covers. I don't know how to get her to sleep under them. She won't even let me pull them down to sleep on the sheet! Oh and I have been busy painting their name in letters to match their bedding. Of course I'll show you pics when the job is completed...with Bob working on it, it could take awhile. No such thing as just painting a room in this must turn into a project.
