There was one in the bed, and the little one said......

Last night we decided to change Hank's bed from a crib to a toddler bed.  This went better than expected.  He has a very low bed so he never attempted to crawl out, because I think it is near impossible but I thought it would be good to transition now.
So he helped daddy take it all apart, bring him plush saws and bolts on his own mind you, without any queing.... then we made a big deal about the bed!  We tucked him in and he got up and ran to the door for about a minute, then crawled right back up into his big boy bed without a peep and fell asleep within 15 minutes.  Derric and I were glued to the baby monitor talking about his every move, It was really sweet.  So proud of our BIG BOY!
Night #1
 Morning after the first night in big boy bed!

Night #2

So I night two we kind of cheated.... Well, Hank fell asleep on our way home so he was pretty sleepy when we put him in the bed.  He literally didn't budge.  Found him laying just like this under the covers this morning.  When he wakes up he grabs his "night-night" (blanket) and comes to our room to get "juice" (milk),  haha!  He is talking so great even putting two words together.  Earlier this week he started telling the fish aqaurium in his bed "bye fish" when I would come pick him up out of his crib.  Too funny,  he also likes to tell Bee-bye (Levi our dog) when we leave "Bye Bee-Bye".  He is hilarious.

A new thing he is starting to do is say is "no" with a shake of the head, not in an ugly tone just very honest like -no thanks, when you are asking him if he wants something or to go somewhere.  Too cute, even if it isn't the nicest thing to say..... he get's his bluntness pretty honestly over here! This is a wonderful age, I love him to pieces!
