....Jax is now sleeping in a big boy bed!
I think the red cheeks are from teething, the poor kid only has 8 teeth so he has a long way to go in the teething department.
We have had Jax's bed set up since Christmas when we moved the boys into the same room. Colt made the move but we decided to wait on moving Jax. Our plan was to try and transition him during my spring break in April. He has always slept so well in his crib and we didn't want to mess that up for now. Saturday night as I was putting him to bed he kept pointing to the boys bedroom and saying "bed, bed" over and over and then he threw a fit when I tried to lay him in his crib (and usually he goes down to bed with no problems). So I asked him if he wanted to sleep in his big boy bed and he said "uh-huh". I carried him in there, layed him down, gave him a kiss and told him to go to sleep. Never heard a peep out of him after that, about an hour later I went and put Colt to bed and he slept through it. Sunday morning at 4:30 Colt comes into our room and tells us that Jax is crying so I bring him into my bed and he went back to sleep. The last two nights he has slept until about 6:30 and has gone to bed really easy. Naps yesterday were a nightmare, Jax kept getting out of his bed and running over to Colt's wanting to play. Colt did nap but Jax never did. Today I decided to put Jax down for his nap first and Colt and I worked on some preschool activities (coloring, writing his name, counting). By the time I put Colt down Jax was already asleep, I am hoping it stays this easy. If all goes well the rest of the week I can start moving all of Jax's clothes into his room and start getting the nursery ready for another baby!
I had to snap a picture of my firstborn too! Colt is one awesome three year old, sure he definitely has his moments but the good far outweigh the bad! He has been so excited that Jax is sleeping in his room now, he has been asking since we moved him when Jax would sleep with him. When we put him to bed at night he always makes sure he is really quiet so he doesn't wake Jax up. He has such a sweet heart and is really loving and protective of his little brother.
