Back in June, we had a big change in our house! The boys moved out of their cribs and into big boy beds! They had been able to crawl out of their cribs for awhile, but were starting to do it more and more. One day I just decided it was time! The boys "helped" me take apart their baby beds and set up their big boy beds!
They LOVE being big boys, and they sure enjoy their beds!!
|We have some balance-beam walking occasionally =)|
|And we LOVE how much more comfy it is to read books all together!|
They have been in their beds almost 2 months now, and really like them! They chatter back and forth, sometimes play a bit in their room before laying down, and sometimes even take a nap in the same bed! One day, after playing awhile, they even fell asleep in the chairs! I saw it in the monitor and had to sneak in for a picture!
|Don't know how they were comfy here!!|
They are still doing a great job sleeping in their beds, but in the last few weeks of July, since we put in their matching dresser (thankfully mounted to a stud in the wall!), they have been having a bit of play time in the afternoons instead of napping. =( We even got to the point where they had figured out how to unlock the baby locks on the drawers, climb up them, and get into the lotion and diaper creams that were up on top--what a MESS! I was going a little bit crazy after 3 days of no naps and boys saying, "Mommy, I all done!" only a bit into nap time. I was NOT ready for them to stop their afternoon naps yet, and my mom came up with a brilliant solution--nap time in their travel tents!! They usually just use these when we are at Mammaw and Pappaw's house, but it was time for some at home camping! We zip them into them, and they LOVE getting to "camp" in their rooms--and they actually take their naps again! Which has brought my sanity back! I'm not sure how long they'll want to camp, but so far, so good!

I'm just so proud of our big boys...they are hardly any "baby" things left here...other than diapers. =( But that too will be done sooner rather than later! I just love my big boys and am so proud of them each day!
