New Bed For Wyatt

This weekend, we moved Wyatt out of his crib and into a bed. I can't believe our crib days are finally over!!!  Although Wyatt stayed in a crib much longer than Weston, I was not ready for him to move to a bed. There is just something sweet about having a nursery.  Why can't he just stay little forever?!!  I would have been content to let him stay in his crib a little longer, but his crib mattress(it was passed down from Weston) was starting fall apart.  So, knowing that we couldn't put it off any longer, we changed his nursery into a little boy room.
It is no surprise that Wyatt asked for a pirate room. He is NUTS about pirates. I would have loved to go all out with the pirate theme, but you never know how long this phase will last. Weston was obsessed with construction vehicles, but he quickly outgrew it. He is still sleeping under a construction vehicle quilt, but it doesn't fit his personality at all.  So, I decided to buy a plaid quilt for Wyatt, and then look for pirate sheets and pirate art. We finally got most of his room put together this weekend, but I would still like to add a few more finishing touches to his room. He could use a nightstand next to his bed, and more art for his walls. I'm still looking, but hope to get it finished soon.
Anyway, Wyatt was pretty excited about his new room! He didn't seem to be too concerned about the big change.  The only thing he seemed to be upset about was that we got rid of his changing table and glider. We sold it to someone, but he thought we were "sharing" it with them.  When he realized they were not going to return the items, he was slightly irritated.  He said, "I don't want them to change their baby on my changing table.  I need my changing table back. " So, he was upset about the table, but wasn't disappointed about taking apart his crib.  He was happy to sleep in a bigger bed with pirate sheets. 
The first night Wyatt slept in his bed, he wet his clothes. I was very grateful that I purchased a waterproof pad to put on top of his sheets. At least I didn't have to change sheets in the middle of the night. However, I did have to changed his clothes. He was upset because his sleep was interrupted,  so he wanted Nathan to get in bed with him. Usually, he asks for me during the night, but I wasn't going to argue with it.  Nathan quickly fell asleep in Wyatt's bed, so Wyatt decided he wanted to get in bed with me after he saw Nathan was out. :) So, Nathan ended up getting a great night's sleep in Wyatt's brand new bed.  The second night,  he rolled out his bed in the middle of the night, and wanted me to sleep with him.  He fell back asleep quickly, so I was able to get back in my own bed soon after.   I am hoping that tonight will be incident free!!! Hopefully Wyatt will be used to his new bed by the weekend.
