We have moved Emerson to a "Big Boy Bed" (really just a matress on the floor, until we get parts to convert the crib to a toddler bed). Emerson LOVES it! He loves being able to play when he wakes up. We love it too because he is entertained for a little while after he wakes up, so we don't immediately have to go get him when he wakes up!
Here is the bed before he went to bed: Here it is after we went and got him after his first night in it:
As you can see he had some fun.
We also went in to see where he ended up the night before and he was on the floor next to his bed. Super cute!
