Big Boy Bed

Since Max and Baby Brother will be sharing a room,
we figured it was high time Max made the switch
to more mature sleeping arrangements.
So two weekends ago, he graduated to a big boy bed!

He was SO excited to help Daddy put it together,
and actually tried putting screws into the pre-drilled holes.

It was everything we could to to keep him off the bedframe
before we put the mattress and sheets on. :)

He was so very excited to try out his new bed!

Thanks, Grammie and Doc, for the perfect bedding!

That first night he did great,
though he was a bit unsure once we turned off the lights.
He did fall out of bed about 5:30am but thankfully went right back to sleep!
We have added a little star night light right above the bed
(which he calls "Max's star") that has helped make his bed area special too.

Max is so proud of his new big boy bed!
After reading stories before nap or nighttime,
he loves to announce where he's headed. :)

After almost two weeks, he is mostly staying in his bed
until Mommy or Daddy comes to get him.
I'd say two escape attempts isn't that bad!

I have a few more touches to add to the brothers' bedroom
and will post pics of the finished product soon!
