Oh let these days last forever

Had I known that getting the toddler bed would have fixed all our bed and nap time issues, I would have done it a long time ago. Charlie just loves his bed. It is not out of the ordinary for him to put himself down for a nap.

Today I was finishing up lunch with Pete. I told Charlie to go upstairs and put his on pull-up. He came down having changed into some more comfortable pants than he was wearing before (sometimes he changes into his pajamas all together). I got a hug and a couple very nice kisses and he told me he didn't need me to come up and help him.

After about 10-15 min, I went up to check on him. The door was wide open, so I peeked in and he was sound asleep in his bed with his blanket pulled over him. I saw he even tried to pull the blinds shut and close the curtains.

I know this probably isn't what every kid does. But, oh man, I'm loving it!!

That is AWESOME! You seriously inspire me with your parenting. Whenever someone says that sort of thing is impossible, I just reference you. haha

Sooo hoping we have the same luck when we switch Addie over!!! Which will be within the next 6 months with a new baby coming! What's the secret?!

Rock on Charles! Prepare for the day when he and Petey "squirrel out" together and Nobody gets a nap. Sounds like he's getting ready to leap into some major developmental light voyages!

Maybe that's what we need to do for our 2 year old. She is crawling out of her crib now and does not want her naps anymore. She is just barely 2 and I know needs a good nap. I think it's time for a bed! :)

That is sooooo great. Lily was that way for a little while, even Harrison loves to take a nap. It so nice when they can put themselves to bed. I'm so glad he loves his new bed and has adjusted well :)
