Oh my sweet big boy…
You should still be a baby. I want you to still be a baby.
Being a mama is hard. I’m an emotional person. Couple that with hormones and I’m a hot mess. Nothing gets me more emotional than my kids. They can make me absolutely melt into a million pieces.
I always thought I would be the hard parent, but no! Those big brown and green eyes look at me, and I’m done. Whatever you want, kids. Couple those eyes with a little, ‘I love you, Mommy’ and the world is yours. I’m a puddle.
Baby Delight is growing at rates that I don’t even want to think about. We are already considering pre-schools, kindergarten, and school options. I will die…
Even though he will be 3 in January, I still had him sleeping in a crib. We haven’t potty trained yet (he isn’t ready), and it kept him in bed. I say let him be little! Plus, he wasn’t complaining.
Well, my little man is a climber. He has been able to climb out of the crib for over a year. Although, he rarely did. Climbing into his sister’s crib is an entirely different story. She cries, and in he goes!
However a couple weeks ago, I started noticing things were in a different place on top of his dresser.
Then, Luvy and I both got annoyed with one another because someone gave Baby D his bear that has a hole in it to sleep with. We walked in the next morning and stuffing was everywhere!
Side note: can anyone repair a bear?? Where is Doc McStuffins when I need her?!?
The next night, I put a bunch of pants that were too short on his dresser so I could pack them away. That next morning, they were all in his crib.
We quickly realized that neither of us had moved things, given him the bear, or put the pants in the crib…. he was CLIMBING on top of his dresser by standing on the rail of his crib!!!
I watched him in the monitor that next night and caught him in the act. It was time to say good-bye to the crib for good.
We transitioned him this past weekend and he did great!
He absolutely loves his new bed!
Of course, Luvy reminded me that our baby boy will never sleep in a crib again. Cue the waterworks!
I love being able to see him grow, interact, and become such a sweet young boy.
I’m so thankful he is my son! Now, if time will just slow down a bit!
Now onto potty training….
