Toddler time
Still no baby yet, but I still maintain that I think she's coming tonight, tomorrow, really really soon....unless she's already trying to make a liar out of me, which is of course not only possible but likely. Worked my last scheduled shift for the week yesterday and felt dog tired, achey, crampy and ready to drop by the end of it.

Today mom came down so that we could go get a toddler bed for him. You have never seen a child so freaking excited about anything. He wouldn't even let us get it all put together before trying to climb all over it, and as soon as it was done, he was launching himself on it, jumping up and down saying "my bed! my bed!" I'm really hoping that this is the change he needs to get out of our bed. We'll be testing that theory tonight, though I'm sure it will take a week or so before the transition is easier. Everything seems to be ready now, or at least we can hope.

Lukas is always so happy when Grandma is here, he just sits in her lap and grins at her or runs around showing her everything that he's learned since the last time he saw her. Sadly, we were shopping during his normal naptime, so he's running on empty at the moment. He is, however, still literally running. *grin*

Okay, that's all I can muster for now, I'm really tired, full from dinner, and feeling like a relaxing bath or shower is in order. blech!

Aww that's so cute that Lukas was so excited about his bed. I was watching a show about how to handle the adjustment of moving a child from your bed to their own. Basically you make it appealing that this is their space and where they get to sleep. Then if they come into bed with you the first time you put them back in their own bed and tuck them in saying "okay time to go to sleep" and if they do it again you just pick them up and put tuck them in again and kiss them and leave without saying anything. Who knows if that really works.

It's also very cool that Lukas is so happy to see Grandma. It has to warm her heart!

You'll be in my prayers as always but more intensely until I hear you've had the baby. :D

yes the back to bed method, we've been boning up on Supernanny lol :). well he did wake up once, and daddy (the best person for the job) sat with him and he went back to sleep for a good chunk of the night, so it went well for the first night yay!
