Guess Who is Sleeping in a Big Boy Bed Tonight?

Yes, that’s right.  My littlest dude has graduated to a big boy bed!!!

It’s kind of bittersweet for me.  He’s growing up too fast.  I listed all of the baby furniture on Craig’s List this afternoon and already have 7 people wanting to come see it.  It’s sad to see it go but we need to move on.  *sigh*  I remember buying the furniture over 4 years ago when I was pregnant with Wildman and now we’re selling it.  It’s hard to believe that 4 years have come and gone.

J and I completely overhauled Cutie Pie’s room today.  We moved the baby furniture out to the garage.  J painted the lower portion of the wall a nice shade of navy (a white chair rail will go up in the near future).  He assembled the new twin bed.  Perhaps the biggest highlight for the boys was mattress shopping at Sam’s this afternoon.

They got to ride on the mattresses while we wheeled them around the store on a flatbed cart.  We got all sorts of comments from other shoppers.  Most people thought the boys were cute.  One guy gave us a wink and a knowing look when he commented on the fact that we were purchasing wine and mattresses… I told J to tell him that’s how we got into this mess.  Ha!

We bought two mattresses today.  One is for Cutie Pie’s bed and the other will be put into the trundle assembly beneath Wildman’s bed.  I’m excited to finally have an extra bed in Wildman’s room.  We’ve used the trundle drawer for storage for about two years.  I’m tired of storing toys they never use in there.  Now Wildman can have cousin T-bone over for a sleepover on the new bed.

    Sigh… the end of an era… but also a new beginning!!

    The boys are so adorable.

    Is it OK to make my baby sleep in his crib well into his teens??
