Toddler beds already!?!?'

We have a couple of big boys and crib climber-outers. Last Wednesday they both made a break for it. They escaped while I was refilling bottles and took off for mommy who wad in bed.

The following night, we converted their cribs to toddler beds. We got a gate for their door and new bedspreads. Jacob has Mickey set, which he picked out and Jasper has Cars, which he picked out.

Bedtime has been challenge but not as bad as nap time. I have been staying in the room with them between their beds trying to keep them in their beds. I'm doing that right now while they're drinking their bottles.

The rule is that they have to keep their booties in bed. Jasper has been laying his head on my lap while the rest of his body stays in the crib. Jacob likes to take off as soon as he notices I'm distracted with Jasper. Jacob also lays diagonally by the bars of his bed and slowly moves his legs over the bars till he's off the bed. Super cute but ornery!

I have been able to get them to sleep at night but haven't been lucky with nap. I gave up the last two days and put a movie on till they falls asleep.

Today however is the first day I got them to nap!! Yay!!

Feeling better and getting ready for xmas

The boys are finally feeling better. They had a rough few days but they both seem to be feeling better. Jacob still has his moments where he just wants to be held. Jasper seems like he back to normal.

With them being sick, they barely slept in their cribs. We all thought they would have a hard time going to their cribs but apparently we are wrong. They have been going to their cribs for both nap and bedtime with barely any issue.

Jacob had been waking up in the middle of the night and I had just been taking him to bed with Joy and I. However last night he slept all night in his crib.

Last night, Jasper woke up crying a couple times. I was able to rub his back till he laid back down and went to sleep. This morning, he woke up again crying and Joy brought him to bed with her. She said he held on to her so tight and went back to sleep.

Last night, Joy and I worked on their Christmas presents. We set up their lego-like block and made a castle. To be honest it was a lot of fun. Almost want to go up there and make a new one, I guess the kid in me came out. I bet the boys will get much enjoyment out of them. I also set the boys toy drum set. Joy did such a great job upstairs! It looks amazing! The boys are gonna get such enjoyment out of their new playroom!

For the first time, the boys are sick! They lasted this long without getting sick which is great. Sadly, sickness has caught up them. Jasper seems to have gotten it first and worse than Jacob.

It stated the other night when Jasper throw up in crib. Since then, he has developed a cough and has been sluggish.

Jacob has developed the cough too and is also sluggish. They both have had a hard time keeping food down, though I think might be coming up when they cough rather than a flu like symptom.

They have spent the last few days watching movies and sleeping on the couch. Joy put the laptop in their room so they can chill and watch movies from their crib.

They haven't slept much in their cribs. Joy has been taking one (usually Jasper) in bed with her and I have been taking the other (usually Jacob) on the couch.

Jacob has been my little dude the whole time. He wants held a lot by me and to be around. Jasper is the same way with Joy and Grandma.

Joy's mom has been staying with us all weekend. Jasper has been loving it. He got all giddy when she walked in the door Saturday morning.

I hope the boys feel better soon!!

18th month check up and dudes' weekend

The boys had their 18th month check up on Friday and with the exception of flu shots, they are done with shots until they're 4! Yay! Next time we go in, Jasper will be on the big boy scale for sure. He was 29 pounds and the scale goes up to 30. I'm sure Jacob will to as he is just a little below him.

The poor dudes knew exactly what the examination table was used for and freaked every time they had to get on it. They only needed one shot and it wasn't too bad. It's still hard holding them still while they get pricked. I held Jasper who looked me in the eye with horror. Joy had Jacob who tried to flip over and crawl away.

The nurse we had was really nice. She gave them little books which they loved. She stuck around afterwards to wave goodbye which I think was very helpful. When we got home they took a nap.

Joy had to work with her cookie business all weekend, so it was mostly just me and boys. I worked on words with the boys. Explaining what everything is. I got several books from library that we read and they looked through.

We played a lot of ball, listened to music, ran around, and played with toys. They loved trying to pull the lights off the Christmas tree and almost making it fall. Tonight, i took the lights off the bottom of the tree. So we have a half decorated tree.

It was a great weekend. Really nice to spend some one on two time. Though, I wish Joy could have been with us.
