We did it! This weekend, Evan's time in a crib came to an end. Even though he is no older than if he was still in a crib, he seems like such a big boy.
After his nap on Sunday, John made the transformation happen while Evan was downstairs. That evening, I told him that we had something exciting to show him in his room. He climbed up the stairs as we followed behind. I was a bit concerned that he wouldn't be too happy with what had happened. Nope. He walked into his room, looked at his "big boy bed" for a couple of seconds, and then turned to us with the biggest grin on his face! I know he was thinking, "This is sooo cool!" He then practiced getting in and out of bed several times.
It's gone well so far; really no different than it had been for the past couple of weeks with him climbing out of his crib. At least this way, he can get back in bed much easier than he could the crib. So even if he does get out to play (and he usually goes for his musical toy--not really hiding the fact that he's out of bed), he can get right back in on his own, or when I go in and say, "Get back into bed!"
