Ok, so...

the house is super-mega quiet. It's so very nice. David, Cody and Emily went to lunch and then to a movie. Joshua and I went to lunch and came home, watched a little Lady and the Tramp (the "puckies), and now he's down for a nap.

I could not ask for a smoother transition to his big boy bed. He actually told me this afternoon that he was ready for a nap. I cannot believe how easy he is compared to the first 15 months of his life (in which neither one of us slept and when he wakes up in the night now I immediately have flashbacks - can we say scarred?) I can only hope it's this easy moving him from his toddler bed to his bigger big boy bed when Emily leaves.

I just sometimes can't get over this sweet boy. He's so loving and obedient (mostly). He simply needs to understand what it is that will please me and he's all over it. I pray that he stays that way toward God and us as he grows up.

Thank you, Lord, for my sweet, sweet son. He is so very precious.

With his cousin, Paige, when they came to visit a couple of weeks ago. Doesn't it look like they just shared a really cool secret?

At the beach here in Little Elm. He had a BLAST!

Is sleeping in his big boy bed!

I went into his room yesterday at naptime to get him because he was hysterical and he was in the process of climbing over, straddling the side of the crib. I thought it was a bit of a fluke and maybe he was just learning that, so didn't make a big deal of it, just ignored it.

Jenna was over and was getting his shoes on so we could take her home. She told him to go get some socks, so he went in there and just climbed right up and over the side of his bed to get the socks inside the crib.

So, I took the side off. Last night was his first night without it. He acted like I was strange. We took the bunk beds apart and put one twin on the floor for Emily. Well, it's not really on the floor, it's still the bed and frame, just not stacked. We took the mattress from the bottom bunk and slid it under Emily's bed. I took the side of the crib and scooted it in under the bed on top of the spare mattress.

I only had to put him back in bed 10 times last night. Literally. And a couple of the times, he had gotten under Emily's bed and pulled out the side to the crib and was trying to put it back on. I think he thinks I broke it?

Today's nap went alright also. He got up only 4 times and I ended up lying in Emily's bed so he wouldn't get up again and he went to sleep. So did I. Haha.

He's in bed now and did not get up one time, but that could have something to do with swimming today...which he's such a little fish!

Maybe I can get better at this....

So. Here I am again saying how long it's been since I've blogged.

All the kids are out of school and my house is over-run with kids. We have VBS for a week, which was fun, and then David's family was all here for just about a week. This was the first time I really got to be around Andrea and I LOVE her! She's so much fun and so very easy to have around.

Jake's on vacation with Mom and Dad. Cody and Emily are here and of course Josh.

We are loving Vintage Church! And it's just in the planning stages!

David has an interview tomorrow with FedEx. If he got that, he could be home at night! Way cool!

Josh is getting so very big. He's starting to take an interest in the potty, and talking really well. He's fun.

Well, that about sums it up. Maybe I'll get around to some pictures later...
