The Big Reveal

I didn't feel like I could really get a good picture, maybe because the space is kind of small, but there is the new closet.
And here is J in his new bed.
And here is a video of the entire room.

After we were all done J played in his bed for about an hour. I was a little afraid that he would want to sleep in it last night. Ken went in to check on him before we went to bed and he told me that J was curled up in the corner of the crib closest to his new bed. This morning the first thing he wanted to do was transfer all his blankets and toys to his new bed....nap time, here we come.

P.S. We installed a child proof door knob cover on the inside of his bedroom door....

If the knob cover doesn't work for him, you could also put a safety gate on the doorway and leave it open. But it all depends on whether he's used to sleeping with the door open or closed. I like the gate 'cause I can check on her more quietly.

Good luck! Wise move! I hope he enjoys being a big boy! It will be nice to have the transition made before the baby.

ps - At our house, the baby and the 2-year-old sleeping in the same room equals insanity. Not a joke. Insanity. I know plenty of parents do it your way, but don't be afraid to switch if it's not working. It almost ruined my relationship with my older son because he became the enemy during sleeptime. That sounds dramatic but it's true. It was horrible. We actually DID end up putting him on the opposite end of the house, downstairs, and we were all happier. But that's just us - take it or leave it. =o)
