This past Sunday Ian and I spent all day working on Aidan's Big Boy Room. The plan is that Cami and baby Aislyn will have the two rooms that are together and share a bathroom and Aidan will have his own suite with his own bathroom, where he wont have to worry about dodging perfume, 5 types of shampoo, or other things that girls tend to accumulate in the bathroom as they grow.
So we started early! His mattress was due for delivery between 12 and 3 so it was a mad dash to convert his crib to a full size bed frame. Once all of the furniture was in place, mattress was delivered and items were transferred, we put on the freshly washed Spider Man sheets, new quilt and shams and Aidan was ECSTATIC!!! He was just giddy going around his room looking at everything as if it were all bran new. He had the biggest smile on his face and could not stop talking about his new Big Boy Room.
We were worried that he would have a hard time falling asleep without the familiar surroundings of his old room or the security of his crib, but he did beautifully. Cami slept the first night with him (more her choice than his...she thought the new room was pretty cool too!) He asked for his music and a book and after about 15 minutes they were both fast asleep. This morning they stayed in bed looking at books until I came in, they were still grinning from ear to ear.
My baby boy is getting so big. Im trying to be better about really living in the moment, because I know that it only takes a moment and its all different or gone all together.
