Major Changes

Yesterday morning I changed Keegan's crib into a toddler bed. I wanted to do it before his nap. That way if I had to fight with him, it was for his afternoon nap and not at 9 o'clock at night.

So naptime comes around, I kiss him lay him down and cover him with a blanket. Then go outside the door and peep through the crack in the door.

He gets up right away. I go in, lay him down again and leave. He gets right up again. One more time, I go in and lay him back down. I'm still peeking through the door, and I can see him sitting on the edge of the bed, not touching the floor. He covers his eyes (because if he can't see me, I can't see him .. right?!) and slowly scoots towards the edge of the bed. But he doesn't get off! About 2 minutes later, he lays back down and doesn't get up again!! He falls asleep and sleeps two hours without getting up again. WOOT!

So then nighttime comes and I just know this is gonna take awhile. We give him his bath, get him ready for bed and lay him in his bed. I sit with the baby monitor on, ready to spring at the first sound of playing. It never comes. I go to check on him about 15 minutes after we put him to bed and he is still in his bed and he's sleeping!!!

When I first show him his new bed. Climbing in and out and in and out....
