Big Boys!

Today is the second day of big-boy beds, and it is very exciting. I am trying really hard to not let the stress get to me! The boys didn't take a nap yesterday because they were playing around; we went in over and over to put them back in bed. But last night, because of the lack of nap, they went to bed after only one intervention. We did hear a 'THUMP' last night around 10 pm, and Daddy went up. Sure enough, JD was on the floor, still mostly asleep, and he just looked up at Dad. Daddy put him back in bed, and JD fell right back to sleep, no crying or anything. Luckily we had blankets and their crib-surround padding on the floor!
Today they managed to settle down eventually and had a small nap, and now..... well I haven't heard anything yet, so either they are being very, very quiet or they are asleep. Woo Hoo!!! I am so excited for my little guys to be in real beds. Even if it is only the front rail of their cribs taken off to make a 'day bed'. It's still a big-boy bed!
They will use the day-beds until they are too big, then we will transform the cribs again into full-size beds. I know we have a long road ahead of us before they go to bed and stay in bed, a loooooooonnnggg road. But it's still exciting just the same.

My guys are growing up!! hehehe

WOW! They are in big boy beds?? Sounds like they are on the right track! Ok so do you think we will survive on vacation without cribs?? I know there is a room with 2 twin beds so I was planning on putting the mattresses on the floor and having the kiddies sleep on the mattresses. Of course, we are worried that they will play and never sleep:) I think it will be a good test!
