Over Memorial Day weekend, we decided it was time to convert Garrett’s crib to a toddler bed. First Noah graduates preschool and now this!!! I almost can’t take all the milestones!!
Garrett LOVES to climb and so we were afraid one day soon we would be making our way to the ER with a broken limb as a result of him launching himself out of his crib. So, behold! The toddler bed!
The first night, he did great! He wandered around the room for about 10 minutes and then crawled in bed and fell asleep (we watched on the monitor). He woke up around 6:30 in the morning and was wandering around his room, confused. I put him back to bed, and he slept until 8:00. The next night, he was feeling a little more bold. He fell asleep okay, but he was quiet in his room in the morning. When I came in, this is what I found:
Every book was off the shelf. All his friends were out of his bed. Benny the Bear was overturned. Garrett had even gotten into his closet and pulled out the diaper pail!! It looks like our independent stage (a.k.a. Terrible Twos) may be lurking around the corner!!
As I sit down to write this blog, I am in amazement that our first born is now going into Kindergarten!! Yes, Noah is a Pre-K graduate!! It seems like just yesterday that he started out at Celebration in the Mommy’s Morning Out Program with Ms. Rachel and Ms. Janna:
The next year, he had Ms. Laura and Ms. Debbie for the two year old class:
Last year, he had Ms. Sue and Ms. Michelle for the three year old class:
And this year, he had Ms. Carol and Ms. Debbie for Pre-K:
You can imagine the emotions when I saw this picture come home in Noah’s school bag:
The graduation ceremony was very sweet, and Ms. Carol and Ms. Debbie were kind enough to gift us with a pack of tissues beforehand. The songs the kids sang just tugged at my heart strings!
Noah and his friends, Ella Rae and Hailey, were recognized, among others, at graduation for having gone to Celebration all four years:
After the ceremony, we had a picnic lunch and snapped a picture with Noah:
Onto the next chapter…I’m going to need more tissues
