Toddler Bed Update

I have had many people ask me about how the transition to the toddler bed is going. It has been great so far! Jonah woke up crying last night and seemed quite terrified. Dan went in his room and within seconds he was settled down. Dan came back to bed and said "well, we were wondering when he was going to fall out of the bed? Tonight was the night!" Apparently Jonah rolled right out of bed onto the floor and it scared him. (It would scare me too!)

He still wakes up every morning and stays in his bed until we go in to get him. I think that is awesome! It shows great discipline on his part! As soon as we open his door, he says "can I get up?" I'm sure sitting there staring at the toys is a huge temptation for him. Dan said we needed to tell him to ALWAYS get up and play in the morning so we can sleep a little longer.

Speaking of sleep...that is one part of this transition that we don't like! We used to put him down between 8 and 8:30 every night. He would sleep until about 6:30 a.m. then wake up for a cup of milk. He would then sleep until about 8:30 a.m. So, he was getting a good 12 hours every night. Since he has been in the toddler bed, he goes down at the same time but is ready to get up at 7:00 a.m.! Yeeks! That is 1.5 hours less sleep a night!

I'm so glad it's going so well!!!! :)

But yuck about the loss of sleep!!! I am NOT liking Kien's wake-up time of 6:30am either... ugh. ;) Sometimes it's been 7am lately though. Hopefully he's shifting in that direction. ;)
