A Day With Britty
Britty's grandmother had a doctor's appointment today, so he got to stay with Abbey and Reed. Of course, Reed was thrilled to have his best friend over for the day.
Abbey said that the boys played and played. When I got home from work around 4:00, Reed and Britton had not had a nap yet. I took Reed to his room, and Abbey took Britty to the family room. Britty went to sleep, but Reed wouldn't.
Abbey had to go to the grocery store, so Reed and I cleaned up the disaster area that he and Britton created today.
After we were done cleaning, Britton had woken up and we went outside for a walk in the wagon.
In other news, I must share a bit of very exciting news. For the past week, we have been working hard to get Reed to sleep in his own bed. So, last Monday night we declared OSIYOB (Operation: SLEEP IN YOUR OWN BED) officially on. It was a tough few days. Abbey and I alternated sleeping upstairs to make sure we put Reed back in his own bed when he awoke crying. We told Pop and Lola about our plans and they supported our decision while we were home this weekend. So, here's the exciting news. Last night, I put Reed in bed at 9:00 and by 9:05 he was finished wimpering and we didn't here another peep from him until 7:00 AM!!! WOO HOO!! Now, let's see what happens tonight!
Now, click on the picture above to watch what Reed and Britton did today.
