Noah's Room - PT III

Noah's bedroom is still a working progress. I have a few small decorative projects on my list to finish before I consider his room finished.
Over the last few weeks Noah's mastered the art of crib climbing. A sure sign that he was ready for a real toddler bed. We had bought him a race car bed for Christmas last year. We thought when he turned 2 he would be ready to sleep in it, but we miscalculated and really he needed to be 2 years and 8 months before he was officially ready.
The girls and I spent a rainy afternoon taking apart his crib and we moved his train set into his room in it's place. We tidied up his reading area and brought in all his favourite books and I displayed my most favourite pictures of him and us on his bookshelf.

Yes all those toys MUST sleep with him every night

I think I was waiting until I was officially ready. Mainly because I'm not ready for him to grow up yet, but also because Noah is a wanderer. He likes to open the front door and run outside without telling anyone, so he would be the type of kid knocking on your front door at 2am because he's locked himself out. I wanted to wait until I was sure he would stay in his bed while sleeping. Noah doesn't like his bedroom door closed at night so I set up a baby gate to keep him contained until morning.
He's been sleeping full nights in the car bed for 4 nights now, and even taking mid day naps without trying to escape. Another huge step to outgrowing the baby he used to be. Since he is my last, I'm finding this transition harder than the last 3. Watching the girls grow up didn't bother me as much because I always had another baby in line. But Noah is the last, the very last.

I'm trying to savour this precious time with him and embrace this new chapter in his life. Before I know it, Noah will be off to school and I'll really be in rough shape!
