New Bed & Teething

Caleb got a new bed! We decided to go for a twin bed and just skip the toddler bed all together. We have yet to actually let him sleep in it because he is so good in his crib--has not climbed out once and he is just so comfortable there. Why change a good thing before we have to? We do his night time routine in the bed, read books there, and Caleb does have fun just playing on it. We got Lightning McQueen bedsheets and we just use my old comforter from before Derrick and I were married. For now, Caleb loves it. We'll see how much he likes it when he sleeps on it for the first time.

Caleb's first 16 teeth coming in didn't bother him one bit. Now, his 2 year old molars are coming in and he has been ten times more irritable than I've ever seen him. It has been that way since Sunday. He cries when he wakes up, he cries we don't give him what he wants, he cries when we do give him what he wants, he screams and thrashes and kicks and protests at everything. He hardly eats and nothing but tv will consistently make him calm. Even at the park he will all of a sudden start crying and lay down on the ground. I want my Caleb back! Hopefully it is just these teeth coming in and he will be back to normal soon. I did manage to get a sweet picture of him and a cute video with Dad (because he will have a few happy moments even with all the fits):

I think you've hit on a genius idea to have him play on his big kid bed for a while before he sleeps in it. That'll help him get really comfortable with it. Hopefully the transition goes great, whenever you end up doing it!
