At bedtime he's been running down the stairs in order to beat Matilda into her bed, where he promptly jumps under the covers and lies down and says "my bed"!
He was very excited. Matilda was also very excited.
Anyway, we got the disused single bed from my mother-in-law's place and set it up today and tonight we tried to get him to sleep in it. The doona cover is a great op-shop find (I love it, so does Kelvin).
It's 9:20pm and I think he may have finally dozed off (after I lay with him for a bit). He's been upstairs about 5 times since bedtime. He is so different to his sister who didn't realise she could get out of her bed until about 12 months after she moved into it - preferring to yell out in the evening and over night for mum or dad to do her bidding!! Matilda didn't sleep at all well in a cot and was into a big girls bed at 23 months and her sleeping and settling improved.
Speaking of Matilda - what about this face? Ask her to smile and this is what I get!!
