The time is coming for Ilan to transition into a "big boy bed". Not because he is a climber and I can no longer keep him contained in his crib. Number 2 is on the way and Ilan's crib will be needed. To help him with the switch, I made him a strip quilt out of a combination of Japanese linen cotton blends and bits of a jelly roll I had bought long ago. I then just stitched in the ditch and the puffier batting gives it a nice lightweight but warm feel. He likes pointing to the little submarines on the one fabric, similar to the one he occasionally has in the bathtub. Ilan has not yet slept in his new bed but instead drags me into his new room and demands that I "sit!" while he plays with his cars and trains. He is truly becoming a boy where all things that have wheels that turn are his whole world.
