Big Boy Bed!

A couple of weeks ago, Reed would start screaming whenever we put him in his crib so we put him in the big boy bed. He has done great-sleeps all night and wakes up happy! Makes me a little sad because it is just one more way he's growing up!

First Day of Pre-K

Last Friday was the girls' first day of pre-k at GPP. It was such a big day-they were so excited! It was also a big day for Mama. It was the first day Kate and Ella were not in the same classroom. They have done fine so far but it's still a little strange with them being separated!

Love this hard playing, red cheeked, dirt eating, bubble wearing boy.

This Boy

This boy is 22 months old today. Way too close to 2 for this mama! He is picking up new words everyday. He's starting to put words together. Some new ones are Daddy gone, all gone, Mama sit(?),
where Jack/Ella, "peese" Mama, "sowy" Mama just to name a few. He says hello like "hah lo." He sounds just like Stephen's German grandmother.

But man, this boy is testing me lately. He can throw a fit like a pro, loves to tell me no, has become a bit of a biter and hitter and pulls hair like it's his job. But, he is also the snuggliest, Mommy loving, sweetest kissing 22 month old I know. We are so blessed to have this little boy in our lives!

We Need to Rethink Our Discipline

So Reed is going through a hitting and pulling hair phase. It's obnoxious and his poor brother and sisters are usually on the receiving end. We're trying to get it under control before he starts school in a couple of weeks.

The other day I put him in time out. First he laughed at me. Then I heard him singing. When I went to get him this is the face I found. He could have cared less. Think we need to find a new plan.

First Day of First Grade

My biggest boy started first grade yesterday! He's going to Riverdale this year. New school, new friends, new rules. We'll miss Harding but are excited about the year ahead!
