Big boy bead

For whatever reason, Jer and I decided it was time to convert Landon's crib to a big boy bed. Landon's Grandma Merrill gave him this bed when he was born, which was made by the Amish. It is so cool because it converts from a crib to a toddler bed, then to a full size bed. I was so excited to find a good deal on bedding and matching stickers at Target last weekend. This may have sparked the transition :)On Friday night, Landon slept in his new big boy bed for the first time. It didn't go great. Landon woke up five times crying. Almost every time, he was sitting on the floor in the middle of his room. After a quick hug to reassure him it was ok, I put him back in his bed and he went back to sleep. Last night was about the same, only he woke up three times.

Today he has a horrible cold. I also got to feel that one of his top eye teeth finally popped through, and the other one on the top is very close. Not sure if the cold is related to teething, but it all may have contributed to him not sleeping well. I do need to look for one of those mesh sides that can be put on toddler beds. This will give me a sense of security that he won't roll out of bed in the middle of the night, and may help ease his transition.
