In a few weeks when the baby arrives, Malachi and Elliott will begin sharing a room so we thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and convert the crib into a toddler bed to give Elliott some practice before moving him to the bottom bunk. After three nights and two naps I can hesitantly say it's a success! After reading books and praying he walks to bed by himself and climbs in. (I think it helps that he loves his blankie and it was never allowed to be out of the crib.) When he wakes up he stays in bed and yells for us until we come into his room and then he climbs out. I can only hope it continues to be this easy!
