Big Milestones!!

A week ago Monday, so a week and a day ago, the boys, myself and Aunt Lori went out to IKEA to pick up our first Big Boy bed.  (I thank Ben and Melissa Hurst for the suggestion to go to IKEA.)  We have a big list of milestones that I hope to accomplish before #3 arrives, so it was time to cross one off of our list.  Cody and I had gone two weeks ago to look at the bed and Jacob didn't seem real interested.  But that Monday morning, Jacob and I were conversing and I asked him again if he was ready to sleep in a big boy bed.  He answered, ummm, yes!  I took that answer and ran.  We immediately got ready and headed out to buy the bed.  That night Daddy put it together with the "help" of the boys.  There are three lengths the bed adjusts to, the largest being a twin size bed.  Awesome!  Jacob slept the first night in the bed and then had trouble the next nap time and bed time.  (He ended up back in his crib)  So I thought maybe he wasn't ready after all.  But the next day and from then on he's been in his Big Boy Bed!  It took a little adjustment, which I expected.  But overall he has done great.  The funny thing is that he won't get out of it.  When he wakes up he still calls for me to come in and get him.  I am thankful for that, for I have a feeling it will be the opposite with Aidan . . .

How cute. Give him time...after the newness wears off he'll venture out on his own...then the fun begins!! Keat used to get into EVERYTHING...but now he just gets out of bed, hangs out until I get up, or climbs into bed with me!! It's a GREAT milestone...enjoy it!!

HI Cody and angela, AWww Jacob looks soo cute in his big boy bed...and do you know my girls BOTH used to do that same thing when they got their big girl beds..they would wake up and call to me "mommmmmmyyyyy is it get up time ???? and i would say "yes,c'mon in here with me a bit" and they'd jump in bed for a bit with me or i'd have to go and get them usually b/c they never wanted to get out of bed without me there to get them or greet them or ???

Yeah Jacob! Heidi does the same thing, calls for me from her bed! Sometimes I hear her get out in the morning and play for a bit, or go over to say hi to Shiloh, but then she hops back up before she calls for me to come in. Too funny. Nap time though, she's out pretty much the entire time, unless she's asleep. But it's great. She has a blast and nice quiet time.
