Just before Christmas we converted Cody's crib to a toddler bed. He pretty much let us know he was ready when he quit wanting to be in his crib and wanted to sleep in the guest room bed. He has done great in the toddler bed and hasn't once given us a hard time about climbing in and out of it. In the morning he wakes up and calls for us like he did in his crib but doesn't get out and come to us. He waits for us to go to him. I love his sweet face when he sleeps. Now getting rid of the paci is going to be heart breaking for him but its time.
He sure is proud of his big boy bed!
He wanted me to take his picture with his sitting on both sides. We tried a couple nights without the bed rail and half his body would be hanging off his bed. This works great and he can still get in and out by himself but stays in the bed while sleeping.
Woody is his favorite "friend" but he also likes Winnie the Pooh, Jessie and Mickey Mouse to sleep with him.
