Crib be-gone!

It's gone, kaput, no more, torn down, and laid to rest...the crib is no longer a crib!  Reid took off the side bars and we've converted (somewhat jimmy-rigged) into a toddler bed.  The bed that was loaned to us is over 20 years old and it is in fantastic shape, but doesn't work quite the same with all the attachments (ie; safety railing) as the new-fangled beds out there.  But, we managed to make it work...for now...and Jack LOVES his new bed.  We asked him to try and climb up into it and he got up on the first try, sat down, and said, "I like this new bed!!" with a huge cheesy grin plastered across his face.  He practiced getting in and out a couple of times before we read books and laid down.  And that's all it took...we officially have no more baby in this house!  I'm excited that he's becoming a little boy and learning all these "big kid" things.  We're on the hunt for a twin mattress set that he'll be able to grow with and use for awhile, but until then, the toddler bed will work. 
Until next time...
