My Big Boys

It's 6:29 a.m.

Ethan and Grayson are currently sound asleep.

Their heads are laying on a pillow.

Their 36 pound bodies are covered with a sheet and comforter.

There are no longer any crib walls surrounding them.

My baby boys are in big beds.

I cried after we tucked them in last night.

The sight of them laying there looking up at us in their pjs all ready to fall asleep. Precious.

Grayson cried for a few minutes as he fell asleep, but both boys were out cold by 7:10 and we haven't heard a peep since.

Their good night sleep can't have anything to do with the fact that yesterday during nap time they were loving the freedom that came with no crib to hold them down! I have heard some of my friends say that their children didn't even know they could get out of their beds at first. took our two stink bugs all of about 1 minute before they realized they could just get up and play instead of sleep!

I can not even describe to you what their room looked like after their nap. It had gotten quiet in their room so Chris and I thought they were finally resting after playing in their toy box a few times, taking books off the book shelf and pushing them underneath their bedroom door, swapping beds over and over and over again...

But...when we finally opened their door after nap time was over we realized they hadn't been resting at all! They had been quiet, but that was only because they were working too hard to make any noise! They had taken every.single.piece. of clothing out of their dresser. They had emptied every.single book. off their book shelf. They had emptied out every.single toy. out of their toy box. They had opened up their diaper genie, took the bag of used diapers out of it, and had the diapers laying on their bedroom floor. Grayson had taken off his pants.

It was quite the sight let me tell you. As you can imagine we are exploring other options for nap time, such as super glue.


  1. Man, I can totally sympathize! Logan didn't get out of his bed for the first while, but he has totally realized that freedom, and rarely naps anymore. Super glue...nice thought. Also duck tape. :)

    sorry we missed seeing all the fun.. I guess this means they don't miss their cribs much? What a great visit we had with all of you and can't wait until we can see so much more of you soon..

  3. Right now we're having a hard time with Aiden sleeping. I keep telling myself that it's going to get easier. But it sounds like it might not! :)


Share a little love would ya? I'd love to hear what you have to say!
