Wow, so my 19-month-old is growing up... preparing to be a big brother, I guess. This weekend, albeit with some hesitation, we decided to put the toddler bed rail on Grayson's crib to begin his transition to a real toddler bed this summer. We'll be needing his crib for Jelly Bean, so we decided that it would be best to start early and give him time to transition, just in case. Well, he has passed so far with flying colors!!!
Turns out our Angelcare Motion Monitor is dual purpose--it tells us if he stops breathing in the middle of the night (yes, I am super-paranoid of SIDS, since I know TWO families that have lost their 18-month-olds to it!) AND it tells us when he gets out of bed now! He very quickly figured out how to get in and out of the bed... that was easy-peasy for him! Saturday night (his first night in the new bed), he had a bit of trouble going to sleep and got up twice. But, as soon as he got tired enough, he laid down and went right to sleep! He only got up once at 1:30 and then slept until morning! Last night was even better, despite the massive storms we had all night. He woke up a few times, but stayed in his bed like a good boy! He woke up about 7:45 for the day.
The day has ended with our OB appointment for Jelly Bean. I have to go finish dinner, but let's suffice to say that it was an AWESOME appointment! I'll post more later... (pics too!).
