My Baby Is Growing Up

So for all you mums out there, you will understand when i say when your youngest reaches two things happen and change so quickly, your left feeling quite empty. They become this little person that is gaining confidence and independence and you wonder to yourself where has the time gone.

Over the past few months it has felt that Freddie has gone from this clingy mummies boy to an independent person. His loving nursery, Making new friends, Entertaining himself and Trying really hard to communicate.

This weekend has been another emotional one, for me anyway. We decided it was time to move Freddie from his small nursery to the larger spare bedroom. Over the past week we have been decorating and moving furniture around and finally Sunday night it was finished. I love how the room looks, I have tried to go Pinterest inspired, boyish room. I wanted it to be something he would be able to grow into but not making it to grown up, I still wanted that baby feel.

I'm waiting on a few finishing off items and need to get a few furniture bits, When its complete i'll post pictures and do a room tour on my channel.

While decorating his room I thought about changing Freddie's cot into the bed. I didn't want him to be unsettled the first night in a new room, But i thought maybe new room new bed. I kept changing my mind over the week, "No i'll keep him in the cot till he's settled, I think i'll put him in a bed." Backward and forwards it was driving me mad. In the end i choose to change his cot into the bed.

At first Freddie was excited, he liked how he could get on and off himself, He got in and out the covers making the bed each time. This looked promising, I got him ready for bed and gave him his milk and sat him in the bed and we read a book. Freddie seemed to be calm relaxed and happy which made me feel more at ease.

We finished reading and now was the time Freddie became unsettled and a little nervous. We gave kisses to Daddy and Taylor as we do every night, normally i would put him down in his cot and he would grab his Hippo comforter and noo noo (dummy) give me a kiss and then put his head down.

I sat him on the bed, Lay down i said patting the pillow No! he told me. I tried to give him his hippo to which he replied with No! "noo noo" i asked holding out his dummy, No!

Umm i was now unsure i was making the right decision, I decided to get in the bed and lay down. lay down with mummy i said, again he told me No! I decided to carry on laying there and didn't say anything. After a minute or so Freddie grabbed his Hippo and noo noo and laid next to me.

I got the quilt and put it over him and I laid there a few minutes more. I slowly got out of the bed so i didn't unsettle him and kissed him on the forehead. I walked out of the room and closed the door a little, I stood outside by the door expecting him to follow but he didn't.

After ten minutes i went back upstairs to check him and he was fast asleep, mission complete.

During the course of the evening i kept going in to check on him, he looked so sweet in his bed but yet so grown up.

I definitely think this was the right time for him, he was ready i don't know why i was so worried.

I wasn't sure if i was leaving it to late or i was putting him in a bed to young. I tried to think back to how old Taylor was, I think he was around the same age as Freddie.

Let me know what age your little ones were when you put them in a bed or if your worried like I was. Not knowing if or how they will react. be nice to hear your stories.

Thanks for reading
