He’ll Always Be My Baby #MummyMondays

This weekend saw Elliott go from a cot to a single bed. Since October 2013, Elliott had been sleeping in his cot which we’d converted into a toddler bed by removing the side rails, but Elliott being somewhat long, looked too big for the cot and often rolled into the sides, or hung off the edges, so we decided to pull out the single bed we had stored away (it actually used to be mine when I was a teenager). A new bed meant new sheet sets, a new mattress protector, a new quilt and a new quilt cover set.

Recently, Elliott has discovered the movie Cars and so we thought he’d love a Cars quilt cover, and didn’t he love it!  ‘Cars, cars, cars’ we heard him say as he jumped up and down on his big bed in excitement.

After we had rearranged his bedroom, put the bed together and made it up, I sat on his bed for quite a while just looking around his room in disbelief that we had already reached this stage of his life, and not just moving into a big bed, but moving away from the baby farmyard animal theme to a little boys theme.

Later in the evening, I went and checked on Elliott after he’d gone to bed for the night and just looking at him reminded me of how little he still is.  ‘Gosh he looks so little in his big bed’ I thought to myself.

He’ll always be my baby.

Before – The cot turned toddler bed.

After – The Big Boy single bed with Lightening McQueen. (Ignore the retro carpet)

    Aww. I’m sad enough having moved her to her cot (in my room still). She already looks so big in that.

      That’s exactly what I thought when Elliott went into his cot when he was a baby, so tiny. And now it’s almost like we’re going through it again, but a different step.

    He will always be your baby boy Eva. It’s so scary how quickly they are growing up. I hope he sleeping well in his big boy bed x

    Hi Eva I saw your message on Facebook and thought surely I have a post to link up. I write more about myself than on parenting. My link is how I have been feeling lately but it is a bit of humour also. I felt really sad when my boy when to a big bed. He is 3.5 now I still look at him when he is asleep and think he really is still a baby. X

      Thanks for linking up! Oh, posts about you are perfectly fine! I write a lot about myself too and my journey through motherhood, I enjoy reading posts like that. I think they’ll always be our babies, even when they’re off to high school!

    I just bought a mattress for my son this weekend, we are shopping for a thomas the train bed to go with it. It makes me so sad. My husband not as sad, he is over the co sleeping thing.

    Thanks for the party Eva!!

      My husband was totally against co-sleeping and still is, but I just love snuggling up with my son. It is sad, I just can’t believe it. Ahh well, all part of life.

    I remember moving my girl to her bed. She still looks tiny in it! She was SOOOOO excited to get in there, though. He’ll always be your baby. That’s sweet. I was having similar thoughts this week – I blinked and my baby disappeared! She’s a girl now! But always my little one. Always.

    Your toddler is moving to a big bed! This is so nice! I remember the day when my son moved to the bigger bed. I was feeling a bit nostalgic because time passes so quickly but for him it was such a great day! They really enjoy this kind of things, actually everything! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Time passes so quickly.. the babies grow bigger and bigger… start talking. We have reached the moment to move my toddler to a bigger bed and it feels strange. I was thinking that there is still so much time to pass before moving him away from his cure little baby bed. I really enjoy to read stories of other mothers and realize that everybody goes through this. Thanks for the post!
