Photo Friday (vol. LXV) [milestones edition]

Don't worry... It's not what you think.  You deserve a break from pictures of Roman (or other ancient) ruins for a week or two.

No, this week chez treppenwitz saw another milestone whiz by in the rear-view mirror.

For a change I'll let the pictures do the talking:



Here's a closer look:


Notice the eyes wide open... and the mischievous look that clearly says, "sleep?  Surely you jest!.  You sent me to BED... not to SLEEP!"

The truth is, Yonah's been lobbying for a few months to change his sleeping arrangements. 

This first manifested itself with his wanting to come into bed with us in the morning and grab/hog a pillow for himself.  Then he demanded a pillow for his crib (yes, I gave up one of my soft down pillows).  And most recently he started refusing to go directly into his crib, and instead would stand in the doorway of his room pointing at our bed while saying "No!  I go bed!"  After a few minutes in our bed he would call me back and tell me he was ready to go into his own room.

But clearly the idea of sleeping in a real bed had been on his mind for a while.



The best was the first morning he woke up in his new 'big boy' bed and stood on it demanding to be taken out.  He didn't fully grasp that the jailer had left the door of his cell open and he was free to go.

Let's just say there has been no further confusion on this last point.  ;-)

Shabbat Shalom.

Awwwww . . . so sweet!

I love his little feet! Adorable.

Is that a bumper on the side, or a blanket he's thrown around in his sleep?

Sarah... Yes it's a bumper/bed rail to keep him from rolling out of bed and splitting his coconut on the hard tile floor. Of course the bumper is hard metal so he's just as likely to crack his gourd on that. So we draped a blanket over the bed rail to try to avoid any bumps and bruises.

So now you have that magical very very early morning gift of cold feet and a damp bottom in your bed as your wake up call? Ah, nostalgia....

Good Shabbos

Ah, congrats to Yonah. It's an exciting milestone isn't it (Liam sure thought it was).

congrats! He looks so angelic sleeping in his new bed.
Give that cutie-pie a kiss from his Auntie Val.

awww.... I'm told it's just a hop-skip-and-a-jump from this to leaving for college.

Cute pics. My daughter has made the adjustment from crib to bed as well...

Awww...so, so cute. They sure grow up fast! Shabbat Shalom!

Trepp, how sweet. Isn't it funny how they still think someone needs to come get them? And, yes, they do figure out quickly that they are no longer jailed!

Our 2-year-old, Motty, just switched to a big-boy bed. Our tip-off: the first time Motty successfully climbed out/fell out of the crib. (Ouch!) No worries - there was a loud thump and some tears, but no lasting injuries. Anyway, Mazel Tov, and may you continue to have much nachas from your kids. Good Shabbos.

So on to bigger and "bedder" things for Yonah, huh?

Posted by: Pearl | May 26, 2006 7:57:03 PM

AAWWWWWWWWWWW!! I am so charmed by Yonah. David, as far as knocking his noggin, he is your son and therefore is presumably thick skulled, no?
Shabbat Shalom

Hey Trepp, I guess you really did like my last post...you "rolled" me...awwww, I'm flattered, thanks!

Posted by: cruisin-mom | May 27, 2006 3:01:29 AM

Look how little that bed is! He is so adorable! Makes you wonder where the time goes...

Posted by: Regina Clare Jane | May 28, 2006 7:29:24 PM

Jack... Thanks.

Judy... Yeah, but he wakes up a lot more cheerfully now!

Kay... Thanks. Can't wait to hear happy news from down under!

Val... Oh, OK (if I have to). :-)

Steg... Yeah, we gave him some schnapps and herring to mark the occasion. :-)

Doctor Bean... or to being 45 and living in his parents basement. One or the other. :-)

Jewish Blogmiester... Congrats to you and yours.

Essie... Thanks, and yes they do!

Randi... Like I said, he hasn't had that problem since the first morning. :-)

Psachya... Ariella was kicked out of the crib at around 2 to make room for Yonah, and Yonah was vaulting himself out of the crib at about the same age. We actually got a few extra months of captivity our of Yonah. :-)

Pearl... [~groan~] :-)

Faye... Nice. :-)

Randi... Been meaning to for a while now.

Regina Clare Jane... I can't remember him as a baby anymore. Yikes!
