Turning A Corner??

Wondering what this picture is?? It was my bed on Saturday and Sunday night... a pallet in the floor in Claire's room. That little munchkin in the picture is Grant. He came and got in the pallet with me Sunday night. I decided to try sleeping in her room instead of her sleeping in my room because that hadn't been going so well and she takes naps in her crib great during the day. She actually slept in her bed all night both nights (without being held!!). She only woke up 1 time to eat. Last night, we ventured back to my bedroom because, let's face it, I'm not 8 anymore and sleeping on the floor takes a toll on the body! However, we switched sides of the bed because the pack'n play has been right next to the window, and I decided maybe it was cold over there. She did great again last night. So, I don't know what the deal is, but I'm glad things seem to be improving. I just hope I'm not jinxing it by bragging on her!

I had a handy little helper hanging out with me yesterday since she was out of school. We went grocery shopping, I got to take a shower without worrying about Claire waking up, Grant was entertained all afternoon, and dinner was ready when Pook got home. I could really get used to that! Here's a picture of my little ham with her. I'm afraid the days of good pictures might be over for him. Every time I tell him to smile now, he gives me a goofy grin and closes his eyes. Claire is smiling more and more these days and really starting to coo. I had told people before that she seemed to be unhappy the whole time she's awake, but I think it's getting better. She's crying less and less each day. She still has that temper and will definitely let you know if she doesn't like something, but she seems more laid back overall now. We ventured to the mall on Friday for the first time, and I was really skeptical as to how she'd act. She could not have been any better, so we've got to go back soon so she'll be used to riding in her stroller at the mall!


  1. Sounds like things are going great! Claire might need to come down and teach Jackson how to sleep that well. He is getting better, but enough is enough already.

    Grant is so cute! Joshua does the same things with all of his pictures, closed eyes and a goofy grin.

  2. You have the cutest kids!!!! You seem to have the two kids thing down pat!!!! I still haven't been to the grocery store with the two of them by myself!!!!
