Big Boy

Well, Friday night - we made the big move. Hulk spent his first full night in his crib! Look how little he looked (don't know if you can see, but his dork of a Mumma put him in PJs that match the crib bedding):

The Amby Baby bed was SUCH an awesome place for him to sleep, I was really really afraid to give it up. When he was tiny, I would watch him wake up, and see the rocking of the bed put him right back to sleep. But - what has been happening for that last few weeks, is that when he wakes up, he kind of skooshes himself down to the bottom of the bed - and is all scrunched up down there. I thought about switching him to his crib last weekend, but I wimped out. We did it this weekend, and he did great!

Both nights he did wake up and need a little help getting his binkie back - but all in all - all three nights he slept at least 7 hours. And - the funny thing? We would start him up with his head by the "Rainforest TV", and by the morning he would have moved himself down to the other end of the bed. Saturday morning, I heard him wake up at 7:30, but he just stayed there talking to himself for about 30 minutes before he really wanted me to come in.

I'm excited for this switch - because now we can use the Amby Bed as a jumperoo sort of thing. Once he is big enough - I know he is going to LOVE to bounce.

What a cute picture. It's hard to believe that Natalie used to be that small -- she goes from end to end of the baby mattress now! Hulk is such a cutie, I can't wait to meet him.

That is so cool that the Amby bed converts to a jumperoo! He does look so cute in the crib. I'm glad your transition went so smoothly. It was a bit hellish with Jillian.

He's just camouflaged!

Glad it went well. He looks pretty content in the picture!
