The adjustment to Lou sleeping in a toddler bed has been as difficult as I expected it to be.  For the first four or five nights, he woke up just about every hour screaming and/or banging on his door.  It was about as fun as having a newborn again.  It's gotten progressively better.  He still wakes up a couple of times a night, but is (for the most part) able to soothe himself back to sleep without our intervention.  Unfortunately, we still hear him on the monitor and so even if no one has to go get him, we are still waking up because he's really loud.  BVZ and I have taken to sleeping in separate rooms and taking turns who has to be on duty.  In the morning when he is up for the day he bangs on the door and yells, "Mamacita!  Come get Louie!"  It pretty much makes up for all the late night wakings. (Norah is obsessed with her Spanish class and likes to teach Lou what she learns).

He's getting better about staying in the actual crib at night, but most days this is where his nap ends up. 

Last weekend I discovered him asleep on the floor with no pants and wearing his red cowboy hat.  We're going with it.
