Abygail's Road and Tower

That's exactly what she told me this was. The road is made from books. And yes she did purposely pick out all the purple blocks. Oh except the random blue block which she said was a window!

No More Cribs...

Yep, she did it today. In much the same way her brother did to us a year and some change ago! Abygail has never tried climbing out of her crib, but she did it today twice! Actually three times, but....
The first time... She was put down for a nap and about 30 minutes later there was a scream from up there. Daddy went up thinking just a foot was stuck or something. Nope! She was standing there in the middle of the room!!!!
The second time... I had laid her back down for her nap after the first escape. She had only been down for 30 minutes before so I was momentarily ignoring that she climbed out. She needed a nap! She slept. I heard her wake up so I sent Jaycob up to say hi and entertain her for a minute, as I often do. Next thing I knew I heard two sets of feet running around up there! UHHHHGGG!
The third time... I then took her and put her back in the crib. I wanted to see how she was doing it. There's one of those round pop-up hampers next to her crib so I wanted to see if maybe she was using that as a step. If so then it would be an easy fix, move the hamper! But nope she wasn't using it.

So we ended up taking the front of her crib off today. I'm kinda sad. I don't have any more fully assembled cribs in my home. A lot of crib pieces, but no whole cribs! The only thing we have left is diapers and school... :-(

How did she go to bed in her new big girl bed you ask??? Well, at first we walked in her room and she started saying, "No bed, crib now" "Crib now, where's crib?". But after a little talking she laid down and fell asleep pretty quickly! Never heard another peep from her. But we'll see how she does all night! I'm betting there will be a little one trying to climb in bed before morning!

UPDATE 2/25: Well, good thing I'm not much of a betting person. We did not end up with a little girl in our bed. She actually slept in her bed all night. This morning she actually slept in until 8am, which is sleeping in for her lately! I'm sitting here and I hear her little squishy butt coming down the stairs. No whining or crying up in her bed. And coming down the stairs she looked so proud of herself!! I've got a big girl on my hands here, watch out!!

So Sorry!

I know its been a while. I got a new computer, new video camera, and new photo editing software. So I've been playing with it all and trying to figure it all out before I started messing with other programs! To hold you over until I finish figuring it all out I have some pics from yesterday!

It was beautiful out yesterday and I took the kids out for a while. Then it turned in a hurry and there was an over 30 degree temp difference!!
Update: I've back dated the post that goes to those days, wrote them today though...

Bigger Room!

We ended up taking down Jaycob's bunk bed down. We never had the ladder on it, but this past week he figured out how to climb up the end of it AND he was teaching Abygail how to do it too. So instead of worrying constantly about them getting up there... We just took the top bunk down. This was a great issue for Jaycob. He could no longer have a tent and that's all he hollared about and is still hollaring about. So we've been on the search for one of those tents that strap onto the mattress. I've had no luck finding something we like or at a price we like!!
Anyway... Jaycob seen me taking pics of the room after the bunk was down and he insisted I take pictures of the trains!!

Painted Hearts

We did out first Valentine's craft today... The kids were oh sooo good this time! I told them to make sure it was just up and downs so the hearts would print right. So the whole time they were saying "Up and down, up and down". It was too cute!

And the finished products! The ones on the left are Jaycob's and the ones on the right (and in the middle) are Abygail's!!
