Several months back, Jamie moved out of the crib and into a bed. Since he was new the world of beds without bars, we put it on the floor so that it was more at his level and less intimidating. It’s been that way ever since even though we had a bed frame ready to go for him.
I’ve been meaning to get the frame out and get him into an honest to goodness bed but I just didn’t get around to it. I wanted to give him a few months of the on-the-floor set up to get used to the whole thing and a few months turned into 6 months.
Today I finally hauled it out, cleaned it up, carried it upstairs, and set up the bed. This was my bed when I was a kid and aside from the fact that I misplaced the bed knobs (I assume they’ll turn up eventually, I know I’ve seen them), the bed is still in great shape. Jamie was thrilled.
