Colton's first night in his BIG BOY ROOM!

Paul finished painting Colton's big boy room on Saturday, so this afternoon we all pitched in to get it ready for Colton to sleep in it tonight!   Summer excitedly kept asking what she could do to help--I absolutely love how excited she is for her brother to have his big boy room!!  The kids loved helping pull off the tape on the baseboards and helping carry Colton's clothes from the nursery to his big boy room :).  I still have a few more things I want to hang on the walls (ran out of time tonight before his bedtime) but it is basically done.

ALL weekend we have been talking about tonight, and BOTH kids were equally excited!  After baths, I shot this video of a very excited Colton who immediately ran and climbed into his big boy bed...super excited for his first night!

Here is a video of our first night "skinna-ma-rink-ing" in his new room before bed (after the kids put their laundry down the laundry chute, we skinna-ma-rink and dance into their rooms for bedtime prayers)...

After prayers, he climbed right into bed and said "goodnight!"  Normally when we tuck him into his crib, he cries for a few minutes protesting bedtime...tonight...not even one tear!  As we closed the door, Paul said, "That was too easy!"

It took him about an hour to fall asleep, but he never got out of his bed (I told him he would have to sleep in his crib if he did get out!).  He is fast asleep in there now!

Night #1 = total success.  We will see how nap-time goes tomorrow....!  Hoping for the best!

Adorable! That kid is such so cute! I love hearing his little voice naming all of the vehicles. The room is adorable. Can't wait to see the wall hanging you are making.
