Our cute little guys have really been busy, and so have we. You might have noticed a little lag in the blogging. Last week, I had to go to Orlando for work. Lola came and helped Abbey with the boys.
Apparently the boys felt that there were pirates or bad guys hanging out in the dryer because they got their swords out to check it out. I'm glad they had their swords to keep their Mommy safe while she worked on the laundry.
Nash made sure that Reed stayed safe.
Reed then moved toward the door where he practiced his skills. Reed has decided that he LOVES the Wii and he really loves playing the sword fighting games with the Wii. He loves them all.
Nash, who follows his brother's lead constantly, then headed to the door to keep it safe.
Ever the innovator, Nash then made a hat from package the outfits that Enna sent the boys.
He is so cute. He often does funny things like that. Aunt Ava and Uncle Brookie gave the boys a toy grill for Christmas and Nash LOVES it. He literally CARRIES it wherever he goes.
Happy Will has been a little bit unhappy the past few days. He is so congested and has a bad runny nose.
Monday night we started Bedtime Boot Camp. We don't publicize it often, but Reed has RARELY slept in his bed for the entire night. Unfortunately, he taught his brother's this habit REALLY quickly. So, for the past few months, we've had not 1, not 2, but 3 extra kids in our bed each night.
So, bedtime boot camp entailed all three boys going to their own beds. Nash and Reed share a bed (Nash has a bed, but it's not his thing). The big boys always go to bed in their own bed, but sneak into our bed at some point.
Will has NEVER been fond of his baby bed, so he has pretty much always gone to bed with us.
Here's how it all went down.
Sunday night - Will woke up about 11:00 and then wouldn't go back to his bed.
The big boys woke up at 2:00. Nash cried for about an hour when we wouldn't let him come to our bed (tore my heart out!). Reed went to the other bed in Will's room and went to sleep without incident.
Monday night: Will woke up around 2:00 and wouldn't go back to his bed. Reed and Nash woke up around 5:45 (right when I wake up for work), Nash cried for a few minutes wanting to come to our bed. Reed, once again, moved to the bed in Will's room.
Tuesday night: ALL THREE, count'em, THREE boys slept all night long! When I woke up for work, Abbey said, "You think we need to go check on Will to make sure that he's breathing." This is, mind you, the very first time he has EVER slept all the way through the night!
So, here we are at Wednesday night. How will we sleep? No one knows, but we certainly have hopes!
