Silly Kid -

The other morning, P was playing around and found some Cars underwear that I had bought for him. Last week, his Daddy showed him how to put them on his head and he decided to do it again. I thought it was so cute and silly and had to get some pictures. He wasn't in the mood for pictures and wouldn't hold still so these are the best I could get. Now, if I could ever get him to wear them the correct way and go potty! That is a whole other story.

What A Surprise! -

We are in absolute shock! As you saw in the post below, P has started climbing out of his crib so we decided to transition him into his big boy bed. Last night was the first try. We really anticipated it to be a VERY long night of crying and running out of his room. When we put him in there he cried when we left, but that is normal. He usually cries for a minute or two when we put him to bed. Anyway, we sat there waiting for him to come out and he never did! He cried longer but he didn't get out of his bed. He ended up sleeping there the ENTIRE NIGHT! We were very surprised and grateful. Now, being the pessimist that I am, I'm wondering if it was just a fluke. I guess we will see.

Mark This Day In History -

Mark this day in history … P climbed out of his crib for the first time. Now, I know that this is actually pretty good! Most kids climb out much earlier and I am totally aware of that. Due to part laziness and part selfishness on our part, we haven’t transitioned P over to a big boy bed yet. We kind of liked having him “contained.” Anyway, those days are now over.

To preface, I try to take my shower before P wakes up and then I go and get him out of bed. So, I was in the bathroom this morning blow drying my hair and I heard a door slam. It scared the heck out of me because J was at work and, as far as I knew, P was in his bed. Anyway, it turns out P had climbed out of bed and was on the hunt for his momma. I came running out of the bathroom thinking there was a burglar or something and found P running to me. It was quite a shock and surprise!

Anyway, that is the story. I ask you to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we transition him into his big boy bed. If you have any advice or anything, we would appreciate it! I am not looking forward to him getting out of bed 900 times each night. So, again, let me know if you have any advice.

Silliness At The Lind Residence -

Not much is really happening but I wanted to do a post. J has this Nerf blowgun thing and he and P were sticking the suction cups to their foreheads. Pretty fun. I actually joined in on the fun but none of the pictures with me turned out. P was just too wiggly. Anyway, here are my fun boys.

Silly boys!


Our little devil!

Just Call Me "Crash" -

On Saturday, we were visiting J's brother and his family. J and all of the men were putting shingles on Patrick's house that they are building. So, P and I hung out with Laura and the kids. P and I ended up going to their Primary activity and made a cute little craft. Here it is:

I thought it was pretty cute and they had enough left over that they let P make one. For those that don't know, My Eternal Family is the theme for Primary this year. Anyway, I think it will look good on my piano.

After the Primary activity, we just hung out, got lunch ready for our hard working men, and visited a lot. P had been playing on this toy 4-wheeler. (Not battery powered, he just scoots it.) Anyway, he got a little too comfortable and ended up taking a ride down their flight of stairs. He has a couple of scabs on his face, a scrape on his arm, and a scrape on his hand. Poor kid. It scared him so bad. But he is fine and I just had to show his true first battle wounds.

I know it can be hard to remember to check those private blogs because they don't show on your lists, like the public ones. Anyway, I hope this helps you all! I absolutely LOVE comments and enjoy getting to hear from you! I hope you all have a very good year!
