Cameron's "big boy" bed

Well, there has been a new edition to Colin and Cameron's bedroom--a brand new big boy bed just for Cameron! Ethan has just about outgrown the bassinet--at almost 3 1/2 months old, his head is almost touching the top at the same time that his feet are almost hitting the bottom! So, we figured it is about time that he gets a little more room while he sleeps--which involves booting poor Cameron out of the crib, the only bed that he has ever known! So Shane spent a few hours and built a new bed for Cameron, just like he did for Colin last year. It is made like a trundle bed--on casters, so that when we are not using it at nap or bedtime, it slides right back up underneath Colin's bed. (Am I fortunate to have a carpenter for a hubby, or what??)

Cameron loves it!! We have had a few interesting nights so far (keeping him in the bed for the first few nights was quite fun!), but for the most part, he is adjusting like a champ. The bed is low to the floor, which I love (for safety reasons, of course) and the boys love that too--a new jumping platform! You should see Colin bounce from his bed, to Cameron's bed, to the floor in one fluid movement. As Lynette says, what one of them doesn't think of, the other one will!

Once playtime is over (on a good day, about 45 minutes--on an extremely bad day, upwards of 2 hours) and they finally do fall asleep, I think they look so adorable in these new beds. :-) Of course, a mother is ALWAYS partial to her own children! I am so thankful for my family, and my three wonderful sons.

Happy Belated Mother's day to all of you!

We have moved Jared and Jordan together too and it takes that long also for them to get to sleep...Glad we aren't the only ones to go thru that....:) Great Job Shane--the beds look awesome!! Your boys are all getting so big!!!
