On our snow day last Friday, we decided to take down Alexander's crib and put him in a big boy bed. He's only 19 months, but this is right around the age we made the switch with our other kids.
|Trapped for the last time!|
We do it young because we usually needed the crib for the next baby, and we find that it's not a big deal to switch them over at this age. I've heard horror stories from parents that wait until their child is closer to 3 and does not want to transition.

Of course, any milestone for the baby becomes a big family event! I told Phil to make sure he packed up the crib nice and secure because this could be the last time we ever see/need it. Phil got really sad and said, "I really hope we need to use it again". Love him!
|This is a guy job, Mom.|

|And, voila! All done. Now he and Maggie will share the Princess room. |
Sorry Xander, one day we'll have a house with more than 3 bedrooms!

That first night, we just put him in his bed and shut the door, and he went right to sleep. It probably helped that bedtime was an hour later than usual because we went to Stations of the Cross. But hey, I'll take it!
Now if only I could take away his thumb as easily :)
