Knowing he was getting older as the days go by, we just didn't want to spend the money on a crib he might use for a month or two or may never use at all.
We didn't want to put him right in to a big boy bed either because we know the kids in the Foster home in Ethiopia stay in crib type beds for a long time and are used to them.
So, we searched The Internets and The Googles for beds.
There were lots (actually the amount of kids stuff is redonkulous) to choose from but we really wanted a bed that would eventually be his big boy bed too.
Finally, after a recommended site from friends we found the perfect bed for our boy!
Here are the adventures of putting said perfect bed together!
1. Always read the directions first.2. Get some help from friends
The final product
This bed is low which we wanted in case he decides he wants to get out but still gives him the comfort of being in a crib.
You can also have both guard rails on, or just one or none.
When he has outgrown the toddler bed, we can convert it to a twin bed with the guardrails as the end of the bed and the back of the bed as the head board.
We both cried when the bed was put together...it is so teeny weeny!
Now we just need him home so we can put him to bed in it.
P.S. More room pictures to come but we are still waiting on a couple of items. Just wanted to give you a teaser!
