Big Boy Bed!

Ok, hankies at the ready people because....my baby's in a big boy bed! Today we packed up the trusty cot for the very last time as we gave Xander his very own grown up divan; sniff.

We've been toying with the idea for a while but weren't sure how he'd do. Anyway, yesterday we were at Rob's mum's 60th party, so obviously didn't want to leave too early, so tried Xander in MIL's bed, and he did fine. So we thought we'd give it a go this weekend. What time in the morning he'll realise that he can actually get out of bed on his own now remains to be seen (and quite frankly, who cares, it's Rob's turn to get up with the munchkins!), but so far so good, he seems to like it!
As I said, yesterday was MIL's big birthday party and it was a fantastic day. The forecast was horrible but somehow we all ended up basking in sunshine! I was on driving duty, so did have to watch Rob get slowly inebriated on Speckled Hen, but that did have it's amusing moments! Anyway, it was lovely to catch up with all the family and we all had a great time.

Of course, we can't have a big birthday without the trusty craft box coming out! Here's the card I made her...
And I made her an exploding box, after seeing the wonderful ones that Rach had done a few months ago. I got Grandad in on the conspiracy and he supplied lots of pictures of the family and so on, right back to when MIL was a little girl. She seemed to really like it!

Will leave you with a video of Xander's nighttime ritual in Nanna's bed, which consisted of a Harry And His Bucketful Of Dinosaurs book and Xander making the noises of the dinosaurs!
