So Ethan has reached a huge toddler milestone.
He is officially in a "big boy" bed- meaning we converted his crib into a toddler bed. He seems to really enjoy it thus far and it gives him a lot more independence.
The only down side is his new found independence has him wanting to play during nap time, so we put him down at about 1045 for a nap and he plays for at least 30 minutes before he lays down in his bed. At least he is having quite time which is just as important as napping because its building his independence.
At night he is doing great! We shut his door when we first put him to bed because otherwise he will just keep coming out, but before we go to bed we crack the door and leave our bedroom door cracked so he can come get us if he needs anything or in the morning when he is ready to get up for the day, which lately is getting earlier and earlier. Ugh!
Its crazy thinking that a year ago he wasn't even walking yet and now he is running all over the place, climbing on everything and constantly telling me " I do it". I'm pretty sure I never gave him permission to grow up.
