Upgraded to a Big Boy Bed!

Last week, as I checked in on my son before heading off to bed, I found him literally sleeping with his feet on the ground and his body reclining backward across his bed.  You may remember this photo:

The week before I found him in a similar position, only face first.

I knew it was time to put together his big boy bed. 

When I was pregnant and looking for cribs, we decided on this one in particular because it converted from a crib to a daybed with a removable safety rail to a full bed.  I don't regret that decision for a minute. When he was practically climbing out of the crib at 16 months, we converted the crib to the toddler daybed.  Now, at 2 1/2 years old, he's grown too big for that.

So today, we put together his full bed.  We used a mattress and box spring combination.  It makes it more difficult to tuck in his sheets, but it keeps the height of the bed low and provides great support.  After a little maneuvering, we put together the bed and rearranged his room.  It's no longer a baby/toddler room, but a little boy's room!  When did this happen?  I must admit, it's awfully cute though.  What do you think?

A bed I don't think he'll be rolling off

His little "reading" nook!
