"my jump out my bed"

That is what Jake said to me as he walked down the stairs about 15 minutes after being put to bed. He had gotten out of his bed once when he was about 19 months old, but hadn't done it again until last night. This time it was a nice smooth climbing out of the bed you can't even hear him hit the floor. We didn't hear him until he was opening his bed room door and we just thought it was a noise of course then we saw him coming down the stairs. We have been having the conversation for about 2 months now about knowing when to move him to his toddler bed. Well last night after 2 times of him climbing out we decided last night was as good as any to convert his bed to the toddler stage. We knew he would be able to get out easier, but we also thought he would be able to climb back into bed too(he couldn't get back into the crib once he climbed out) But 1st I had to put him back in his bed and get a video of his acrobatics plus I wanted to see for myself exactly how he was getting out of his bed.

After Jason got his bed all put together into the toddler bed we laid him down and read a book then kissed him and said goodnight. Through the monitor I heard him get up once and try the door, but couldn't get it open then I didn't hear him any more. With a little fear (because with it quite who knew what he was doing) I waited for about 10 minutes then went up to check on him. He had gotten back into his bed and was sound asleep. So little boy in his new big boy bed. Here's to hoping that the rest of the nights and especially nap time go as smoothly as the 1st night in his new bed!!! This is what I walked into and it was actually dark in his room, my flash on the camera just makes it look really bright!
