Dylan's 1st Grown-up Bed

Ah, the day has finally come that my little guy is not so little anymore. There is no more denying it. It's time for another bed. This time a bed that will last a little longer than 4 years.

The crib was great until he quickly learned how to climb out of it. Thankfully his crib converted to a toddler bed, but he still seemed to climb out of it ...

At age 3 1/2 Dylan got a really nice bed. The sides came up around him and it wasn't too high off the ground so I had no worries of him falling out of bed. This didn't last too long either ... he's way to cool to sleep in this bed now. Not to mention the fact that he keeps bumping into the panels at night and banging his head.

The goal was to get a bed that Dylan would love just as much as my bed and hopefully sleep in the new bed and not on the floor or on a chair!  By the look on his face, I think I have succeeded.

He still thinks he is pretty cool, but at least he is on the bed this time ...

At least I did one thing right. The bedding I bought for his crib had matching bedding for the twin bed and I purchased it all at the same time. The small quilt that now lays at the foot of his bed was once the quilt that covered his tiny body in his crib.
See, mom's know how to hang on to their little boys ... at least for a little while.
