Full Size Bed for a Big Boy!

Over the weekend we changed out Jacob's toddler bed to a full size bed!  Since he's going to be a big brother soon, little sister needed his mattress, and we thought a bigger bed would be helpful when guests come and stay too.  Here's some pictures of the process!  Jacob was quite the happy camper when he saw his bed all put together.  So cute!

Everybody helping undo the toddler bed.  Jackson and Deon are supervising, Jacob is checking out the screws, and Daddy is undoing the side rails.  Teamwork!

Jacob turning the allen wrench to unscrew the railing of the toddler bed.

Adding the footboard, meant Jacob had a new "racetrack" to try out.  He was pretty happy about it!

Jacob using his "drill" to put the boards in place.  :)  Just like Daddy.

The mattress is on, and Jacob is pretty happy about it.  This picture us a little blurry around his face because he was bouncing up and down on the bed!

The final set-up.  Jacob said he wanted orange sheets, which is his favorite color, so we found some and some striped pillowcases to go with them.  He screamed with delight when he saw it all put together.  It was one of those moments that I wished I had recorded.  Oh well!
Happy Sleeping, Jacob!
