A Big Boy Bed

We went on a long vacation (more on that later) where Joseph spent the entire 10 days in various adult beds.  He did pretty well with the sleeping - needing us more because they were new places than because of the beds. 

When we got home, I realized that either he's gotten fatter or my belly had gotten bigger, because I could barely lift him in and out of his crib!  He's never tried to climb out, and he sleeps so well, we were planning to just leave him in the crib until the baby needed it or things changed.  Well, I guess things changed!

Last night T.J. took the front side off of the crib, and Joseph now has an open "toddler" bed.  He had no trouble last night and stayed in bed until we came in this morning, so we'll see how the nap develops today.  I *just* put him down to sleep.  So far he's not very settled, but still lying down in bed.  I hope he doesn't figure out that he has free reign of his room now!

I would love to hear more about how this goes for you. We recently converted our daughter's bed to the toddler/day bed and it didn't go so well. The first night she fell out of it (onto pillows we had put on the hardwood floor). When I went in to get her she was completely wrapped in her blanket like a little worm and I couldn't find her in the dark, lol! Since then we have just put her mattress directly on the floor. I much prefer it there, but we'll move it back into the day bed eventually.
