we took down the crib thursday.
cj's "new" bed is his crib mattress on the floor--with bubba's old tigger and pooh bear bedding. he even has a pillow now.
he seems to be enjoying it...especially the freedom it gives him. however, to protect our youngest son from potentially falling down the stairs (and to give his parents a small semblance of sanity), we are, for now, blocking his doorway with a removable gate at night and during naptime.
kids grow up way too fast!
