Big Boy Room

This weekend, Jordan and I made the bold move of transitioning Caleb to a big boy bed so that we could start moving the crib into the new nursery.
He did pretty good until it was night night time, and he had a fit and said that he was scared (mostly because of the bedding that we picked out, coupled with the change). He cried for about an hour and a half even with consoling him because he was so scared, but he eventually settled down enough and got sleepy enough that we could put him back in the bed. He slept for an hour before waking up again, and this time, Jordan went in there and within 15 minutes, he was out for the rest of the night.
We removed the "scary" comforter, and put on a fleece blanket.
Last night (sunday), he didn't even pitch a fit, and went down easy.
Other than Saturday night, the transition was very easy.
Now, if only I can get him to sleep in later like he did while he was in his crib
