A few of my favourite things

Monkey has now been in his big boy bed for over a week and he is doing so well in there. He has developed an interesting habit now too, which actually we find really adorable!

We put him in his little bed, he lies down and we shut the door. We go down the stairs and we can then hear him get out of bed and run around his room. He then gets back into bed and has a sleep.

When we go to get him after his nap, or first thing in the morning, we find him like this, surrounded by a few of his favourite things.


Some of his fave books, a teacup, a load of blankets, lots of cuddly toys, his lightning mcqueen pillow, and randomly this morning, a pack of wipes he had  started emptying!

We aren’t entirely sure how he sleeps amongst all of this, or how comfy it can be, but he seems happy enough and we think it is dead cute!

  1. Seriously too cute! I just love a sweet collection of ‘favourite things’, I love how you describe him running around and gathering them all up! #OrdinaryMoments

  2. Ah that IS really cute! I always kind of used to wish that JJ would do this but he just wants to be surround by 7 million muzzies! X #ordinarymoments

    • Aww thank you, we were dead surprised how it went but they do do better than we think they will sometimes, so hopefully all will go well for you too! xx

  3. I think it’s wonderful that he’s adapted so well to it! It’s going to be good for you because you need lots of rest 🙂 #SSAmazingAchievements

    • Thanks tarana, he has done so well, we are amazed! And it really helps as i don’t have to lift him anymore! xx

  4. This is fantastic. We have major sleep issues with Ethan and part of it is because he can’t self soothe and is attached to us not to a teddy. Your little guy is gathering up his favourites to make his sleep even better ;0).

    Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)

    • Thanks Jane, I bet it is much more difficult with autism added into the mix, we love how he has all these bits and bobs to snuggle up with, he is so happy in his bed, thank goodness! xx

Thanks for taking the time to write something. I love comments and read every one xx
