Big Boy Bed
So....This will be Caleb's third night in his big boy bed. The other night he fell asleep in my lap (so love when he does that) After he fell asleep I thought if I could put him in bed asleep, that may be the easiest time for the transition from his crib to his big boy bed.
Well, it was what he needed to help him accept the new bed, comforter, colors, textures, etc. I am hoping his sensory aversions are conquered in regards to the bed. His sensory aversions can go away and re-appeear, as this does happen frequently with his toys. So we are really hoping and praying that his sensory aversions in regards to his bed don't re-appear. Fingers-crossed!
So, today I took apart his crib. It was a mixture of emotions for me when I was taking the crib apart. I was happy that my little boy is sleeping in a big boy bed. But at the same time, my little boy is in a big boy bed and I know that 'baby' stage is over. We didn't get to enjoy all the time that he should have been in a crib here at home, as he was in the hospital for a year and a half. So that reminded me of some of the things he might have missed by being in the hospital for so long. But the joy DEFINITELY out-weighed the harder memories of things he may have missed. I am so proud of my little boy's accomplishments throughout his life and he continues to make me so proud to be his moma. Way to go Caleb!
God Bless you all!!
God Bless Caleb!!
