Big Boy Bed

With a mere 17 weeks remaining until baby boy #2 arrives, Ed and I decided it was time to move EIV into a big boy bed

SUPER SAD, right?!?!?!?!?!?!
Why?  Seriously WHY....does this act have to be so dang difficult! 
It doesn't get any easier with each child.
I'm such a sap!!  But of course, I cried.

My baby boy is going to be a big brother soon.
I know that the second this baby comes, EIV will instantly look like a little man.
Not my little heart baby.  A boy.
Poo, I say.  I don't want it to happen.
(ok, come on....yes, I have 3 kids....I know it WILL ALL be OK....but still makes me sad, sad, sad until I hold this baby in my arms).

Ok back to the bed.
We left the crib up in the room because baby will soon be sleeping it in, so honestly I don't think EIV really understood what was going on.
Secondly, E and H were SO excited about the new bed, you would have thought they were getting a new bedroom.
Once Jeter realized there was a heated mattress pad on the bed, he thought the bed was Rock Star too!
Sorry...these iphone pics are really bad!!

As you can clearly see, the bed was a hit!
EIV has only requested his crib one night.  I consider that a success.
Success never felt so sad.

Oh my gosh...only 17 weeks! Hope E IV settles in quickly. It sure looks like Jeter didn't have a problem with the new set up.

You took the plunge? Sad for mom, but sounds like EIV is settling in! On the brightside, you got to wait a whole year longer than me with my escape artist :)
