The next 3 nights we decided to let him fall asleep and put him in his bed. Again he's been going to bed much later now. He did great! Last night we decided to try putting him bed awake to see how he does. A few minutes pass and he flips his bedroom light on with the help of his pottery barn chair. Then we hear him going through his drawers. Daddy gets in there first to find him trying to put his Thomas undies on over his jammies- HA! He had one leg in and was getting ready to work on the other. He cracks us up. I wish I had taken a picture, but didn't get to it in time.
I guess the good thing is he's not screaming or crying not wanting to be in bed alone. It's just he has a lot more things now that he could be doing rather than sleeping, so he get's up and does them. I'm really hoping we get to the point where we can put him down while he's awake and if he gets up for a few minutes will climb back up there when he gets tired enough. I guess this problem is a much better problem to have than one sleeping in our bed. I have friends that are trying to break that habit now and I've heard it's VERY difficult.
If anyone has any tips on helping him adjust to toddler bed please pass them along! We definitely were not expecting to have him in a toddler bed so soon.He's growing up so much faster than his Mommy and Daddy want him too.
Couple last pictures of Baylor in his crib!
He has his tool in hand ready to help Daddy get to work.
Thinking about all the fun he's going to have pulling everything out of his closet and drawers.
Trying it out.
