We decided it was time to upgrade Jake to a big boy bed. He was super excited. He didn't really need a bigger bed but our family needed a bigger bed so that no one has to sleep on the floor when guests stay overnight. And since we don't have a guest room, we'll be turning Jake's room into a guest room for our overnight visitors. Hope everyone likes Lightning McQueen. I think he's classic.
Anyway, the crib my dad built Jake when he was born is one that converts from a crib to a toddler bed and then to a full size bed. So we just needed to buy the mattress and box spring. They arrived yesterday afternoon and Mike began the process of turning the toddler bed into a real bed. Emma helped.
Jake was busy watching a movie and summoning us to him whenever he needed a snack or a drink. He thinks he's the King or something.
This is the finished product. It's really a beautiful bed. Too bad our kids' bedrooms are so darn small. The bed is now definately the focal point of the room. Jake came running into the room when it was finished and was very excited and even grateful to his serfs for providing him with this bed fit for a king. He looks so cute and so very small in it.
The next step in growing Jake up? Big boy underwear. We are going to get this kid potty trained this summer if it kills us. Aren't these the cutest underwear you've ever seen? They're so small it looks like our cat could wear them! Hard to believe someone small enough to fit into these little things needs such a big bed to sleep in.
