Simon has reached another milestone this week. He has been growing and growing, and has outgrown the toddler bed. The poor little guy has been complaining about his feet touching the wood.
We took some time this past weekend to get him a twin sized bed. He was super happy to have a bed big enough for him, and to have a bed similar to his big brother.
We said goodbye to the boat bed. We purchased it for Elias 4 and a half years ago, and either Elias or Simon has slept in it ever since. Nathan and I really loved that toddler bed, but Caleb is not ready for it and if we are going to keep either the crib or the boat bed we decided on the crib because it can be converted to a toddler bed with the front off and it is more versatile in the long run. We were happy to send it to a good home, though, and hope cousin James enjoys it as much as we have!
Nathan the iron heart never understands why I get sad at moments like this. I am happy to watch the boys grow and learn, but feel sad that time seems to be slipping away through my fingers. As Daniel Tiger says, “Sometimes you feel two feelings at the same time. And that’s ok.”
