Big Boy Bed

Colin has been in his big boy bed for a couples weeks and is doing great! He has been in the toddler bed since August or so and we were waiting on Grandpa to make his bed. Grandpa also make our master bedroom furniture for our wedding gift.

Here is a quick view of the little guy's bed. Grandpa still working on the trundle to go under the bed (so it won't look so hallow like it does now) and the dresser so his room doesn't look done yet. Not to mention I still need things to hang on his walls. But we are very glad to have the bed for now!

Still not sure on my plans for the trundle yet. Originally, I wanted to put another mattress there. It will be needed as he gets older and has little friends sleep over. But I think for now, we might just use it as extra storage space for toys or clothes or other things we aren't using at the time.

We are working on keeping Molly off the bed. Everytime she gets up there, one of us tells her to get down. It's not hers. Colin always fallows up with, "Molly, my grandpa made that bed." He is very proud of it.

I also love his little lamp and alarm clock. When he gets up in the morning he usually yells "Mommy, I'm awake!" I go ask him what woke him up today. He usually answer with his tummy or his timer (the alarm). We don't actually use it. But if we did it wouldn't beep. It rib-bits!

Off to Pinterest to find cheap and easy ideas for his walls.

Speaking of a big boy - Colin had his 2 1/2 year check up this week. He weighed in at 33 lbs (83%) and is 37 inches (95%). He was due a big boy bed!
