The latest things.........

Here's whats new around here........
Well, sort of, this post is about two weeks late! ;)

Our Gate is up now.......

Hayden discovered two things this past month....
Dog food bowl and Stairs! He's a mover!!! No matter how far I put him away from the stairs, he always seems to find his way back!! For his safety and my peace of mind we had to put up the gate!

Big Boy Bed
(no more pacifier either!!)

Dax's big accomplishment this month was sleeping in the big boy bed and getting rid of his pacifier! Yeah!! It's gone pretty smooth. The first night he stayed in bed all night long till morning. Our big rule is that he must stay in bed till I come get him. It's been almost two weeks and he is loving it!! He has gotten out of bed a few times but overall he is doing a good job!! Oh, one time he did get out and get into the baby's crib which was a big "NO NO"!

Build A Bear workshop and girl time!!

Grace and I went to the mall together the other day by ourselves for some "Girl time". I love spending one on one time with my kids!! These Mama dates and Daddy dates are fun and important to us!! A Build A Bear store just came to our mall so I thought it would be fun to let Grace make a bear!! She's so cute because she knew exactly what she wanted. She wanted a pink bear, a dress with wings and she named it Gracie. She's getting so big!!

We actually took these pics about two weeks ago but I thought they were cute. You can tell by these photos who has the most influence in this sibling set!! ;) To Dax's credit, he only wears it for about two seconds and then proceeds to take off and throw it!! I keep wondering when boy power might take over my house? I am sure it is bound to happen since Grace is outnumbered now!! It is only a matter of time I'm sure!! ;)

Your kids are so cute. Looks like they will be fun at christmas time. Can't believe how fast they grow up. Great about the pacifier and big boy bed. I'm hoping we can transition devin over when the baby is born maybe not right away but somtime before I go back to work.

I love that you have Mama and Daddy dates. That is so important for your children. My sister and I always had dates with my dad- they were so good for our relationship with him.

I can't believe Hayden is already climbing stairs! What a big boy. And, yeah for Dax! I love that since David sleeps in a big bed, I am awakened in the morning by his little voice calling for me from the doorway. It is the best! So far David has slept through every single night except for one when he came into our room twice and another couple of nights when he wasn't feeling well (but those don't count). I hope Dax keeps up the good work- for your sake :)

Oh, and let me say it again, your kids are so beautiful!!!
