Ten Again

1. The transition to the big girl bed has been somewhat tricky. Last night we had to put ole girl back into bed 1, 443 times. She FINALLY fell asleep and slept like a rock. I haven't taken pictures yet because her room isn't finished. We still need to take the crib out and buy a few accessories.

2. The county fair starts this weekend and I am ten kinds of excited. Ahhhh carnie food. Sweet, delicious, fried, and fattening carnie food. So many choices and so little time.

Here's Little Bit enjoying the sugar goodness of some cotton candy!

3. Sophie now acts as though I'm making her walk the plank when we go to daycare. I hate it that she hates the new room so much. I miss my happy little girl in the morning. 

4. And speaking of nice of my part. Yesterday, I managed to pinch a little boy's finger in little wooden door when I was picking up Sophie. NICE! And of course as he was screaming bloody murder his mama walked in. Man did I feel bad, and continued to feel bad all evening!

5. So I talked to my dad the other night and the pumpkin patch is sprouting like crazy! I'd like to make a sign for it, but I don't have an arts and crafts bone in my body. 

6. Oh how cool is this. Last week at the beach Buncle Sean bought 4 shark teeth and PapPap "planted" them on the beach so the boys could find them. Now how cool is that. Deceitful, yes. But ultra cool, heck yeah.

7. Little Bit and I made "red velvet" cupcakes over the weekend. I think for the rest of eternity red velvet will remind me of Steal Magnolias and the armadillo grooms cake.  

8. The daughter of a guy that Steven works with may be able to give Little Bit some swimming lessons. Which would be AWESOME! I worry that I'm gonna turn around and she's going to be doing a triple flip off the high dive!

9. I'm now addicted to "Runs House" on MTV. 

10. As I've been typing, we've had to put Sophie back to bed 7 times. And now she's in her crib. Great.

I was crazy to think about putting an 18 month old in a big boy bed! I guess I'll be needing 2 cribs for a while! Hopefully Sophie learns to like her new room at daycare. - Amy

I really sorry to hear that Sophie is having such a hard time adjusting to her new room. That breaks my heart. I can't believe how much older she looks in the second pic. Gosh she is really changing.

Summer makes kids insane, I've decided. There is no other explanation.

I'm sorry that Soph doesn't like her new room! I hope she starts liking it soon. Love the last pic, she does look so grown up!

Mmmmm, fair food....Can't wait for our county fair. Well, would you believe Cameron still sleeps in his crib? I am not ready to deal with all the getting in and out of bed yet because the first thing he does when he gets up is visit Ava in her room and wake her up! Anyway, hang in there!

I love Run's House!!!

County fairs - woohoo!!! You could so make a sign for your pumpkin patch - I have faith in you. I am sure you will be able to get alot of good pictures once the pumpkins are on the vine - our pumpkin patch has taken over part of our back bank - I hope the deer do not destroy it before our pumpkins are ready (and before I get some pics of the Vivo).

She's growing up so fast!! Good luck with the big girl bed.

OK, so you've had to put her back in bed 7 times...who could get upset at a face like that, though?

BTW, Buncle Sean clearly rocks! What a great idea!

I know that miranda just put a gate up in bray's doorway. that way the door was not closed but he could not out of his room and where ever he fell asleep..floor, bed or whatever...is where he slept

Megan said...

Dang it. You're so scaring me about the big-girl bed!!

Jonathan's Mommy said...

We are going to transition to a new room at school, soon, too and Jonathan is not liking it! He keeps demanding that he is not going to the preschool room "EVER, EVER!!"

I love the carnie food too! Makes me wish for the state fair next month and I just had Cheescake Factory for lunch!

I agree Sophie looks so grown up now. Good luck with the big girl bed, though I agree getting the crib completely out of the room may help. Depending on the size of the sign for the pumpkin patch, I may be able to take a stab at it (provided I can find stencils, etc. b/c I can't freehand much to save my life).
