Bed Time?

For over a week now. Sebby has been drawing attention to the bed in his room at naptime and bedtime. I thought he wanted to sleep in the bed instead of his crib but Darren explained that he wanted us to lie down in the bed until he went to sleep.

Saturday afternoon at naptime, Darren asked him if we wanted to sleep in the bed when he mentioned it. Much to our amazement, he lay down and although he cried for us a few minutes after we left the room, he stayed in bed and went to sleep.

For real?
Our mischevious little Sebby stayed in bed? We figured we could hold off on transitioning him from the crib to the bed for a few months, thinking that he would be scrambling around, emptying the drawers and climbing on the window bench the moment we left the room. But he surprised us and stayed in bed. Again at bedtime, we left him in the bed and he went to sleep after a few minutes.

Well it's been a few days and so far so good, he's stayed in bed and doesn't seem phased by the transition. I guess we'll see over the next few weeks how he does with sleeping in the bed and if it continues to go well, Sebby will offically be transitioned to a big bed. If he decides that he wants to go back to sleeping in the crib, that's OK with me too. We weren't in a rush to move him out of the crib as Little Lungette won't be needing it for at least a few months. That being said, if he is ready to start sleeping in the big bed now, that's cool with us. I can say that the transition to the bed was surprisingly easy (far easier than the transition out of diapers), however, I know he has been really tried at both naptimes and bedtimes lately.

Sure seems like our little guy has been growing up so fast lately.
